Genesis P-Orridge’s Penis Gun/Curse Casting Wand

From an interview for Art F City:
“Walking through the Buddhist talisman market in Bangkok with Lady Jaye in 2002 we took a small alley to avoid the crowds. On a corner was a shriveled agelessly ancient old man sitting on a blanket surrounded by junk a thrift store would reject. But some intuition forced me to stop. We immediately were drawn to what now is one of our most revered objects. It’s a thick brass penis/automatic gun. The barrel is covered in spherical lumps that represent small pearls inserted under the thin skin of the penile shaft, the ‘head’ is smooth, and has a urethral hole. The handle/grip is a mock up of standard grips but is hollow and could possibly hold a real clip of ammunition. There’s no trigger. There are very faint engravings of the same Thai script gangsters, among other Thai groups, receive from priests at certain Monasteries. It seems a very serious magical object, possibly a ‘wand’ to point at, fire a curse at…an enemy.”
