My name is Dorian Ellis, I’m an Australian artist working online under the alias ‘Apocastasis Manticore’.
This blog is documentation of my journey learning and exploring my pagan practice. I have a keen interest in pop culture, video games, costuming and shapeshifter magic.
I occasionally teach Vulture Culture/introduction to taxidermy and animal magic classes and I’ve been operating White Manticore since 2009, attending local conventions, market stalls, events and selling online.
I started White Manticore in response to the difficulty I had faced in sourcing legal and affordable animal products within Australia.
White Manticore provides a range of ethically sourced taxidermy, shamanic pagan and witchcraft related services, as well as costume resources and my own artwork.
