Poor Bandish has been a bit hard done by as he was made to bind a disinterested person to someone who desired them greatly. The thorns in the third eye were to ensure that the victim would focus their mind on the enchantress and the chains, lock and key acted to ensure that they were bound to the poppet-maker. Just to make sure the spell would work an invocation was written on the back of Bandish which reads:

By Air and Earth, by Water and Fire

So be you bound, as I desire.

By three and nine, your power I bind.

By moon and sun my will be done.


The invocation ends with a ‘locking in’ sigil.
