Protection hex sign for farm animalsThe Hexenmeister (hex master) is the painter of traditional Pennsylvania Dutch (actually Deutsch or German) hex signs, commonly found at the peaks of barns in Pennsylvania and the surrounding area. These circular hex signs have much mystery, myth and confusion surrounding them. I was taught that they were "painted prayers," invocations and petitions made visible, asking God for the blessing of protection for home and farm, good fortune, abundance and prosperity or inviting guests to be welcome.

Like many folk arts, their roots are not clear. This site is devoted to thabundance blessinge art, magik and practice of designing and painting these symbols of my Pennsylvania "Dutch" heritage, the tradition in which I was taught and the directions in which I have taken it.
