 In Magick Without Tears, Crowley describes the Lamen as a "sort of Coat of Arms" that "expresses the character and powers of the wearer", a "dynamic portrait of the individual".

He mentions that a "Lamen of my own Magick" was originally included as the frontispiece of the first (4 volume) edition of Magick in 1929. However, he says that the colours were "vilely reproduced". The colour plate was omitted from subsequent editions. This new interpretation of the Lamen restores the colours to those originally intended by Crowley.

All the symbols displayed on 'The Lamen of the Master Therion' can be explained in the context of Crowley's ritual Liber V vel Reguli. Written in 1921, Reguli was "an incantation proper to invoke the Energies of the Aeon of Horus".
