Valak is a name of a daemon, who is described in the goetic grimoires of the Key of Solomon, whose 'Animus' archetype was conjured into the consciousness of the collective audience by the 2016 Hollywood horror flick, The Conjuring 2, which was directed by James Wan.

Valak is also known as Ualac or Valac and in Thomas Rudd's variant grimoire, Valak is called Valu.

In Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, Valak is named as Volac, and in the Liber Officium Spirituum Valak is otherwise known as Coolor or Doolas.

Within the tome of the Munich Manual of Demonic Magic, Valak is spelled as Volach.

In all of these grimoires of the deified 'Animus,' you have varying spellings of Valak's name.

However Valak is described by all of these Playgirl grimoires as being an angelically winged little 'boy' riding a two-headed dragon, who is attributed with the 'mercurial' power of finding treasures. For example:

"Valac is a great president, and commeth abroad with angels wings like a boie, riding on a two headed dragon, he perfectlie answereth of treasure hidden, and where serpents may be seene, which he delivereth into the conjurors hands, void of anie force or strength, and hath dominion over thirtie legions of divels." - Johann Wier (1583) Pseudomonarchia daemonum

"VOLAC, or VALAX, or VALU, or UALAC.--The Sixty-second Spirit is Volac, or Valak, or Valu. He is a President Mighty and Great, and appeareth like a Child with Angel's Wings, riding on a Two-headed Dragon. His Office is to give True Answers of Hidden Treasures, and to tell where Serpents may be seen. The which he will bring unto the Exorciser without any Force or Strength being by him employed. He governeth 38 Legions of Spirits, and his Seal is thus." - S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1904) Goetia

The classical Playgirl grimoires did not symbolise Valak as being a Nun, as depicted in a Hollywood horror flick, which if it had been more accurate, would have Valak being featured as a school-boy looking like a demonic version of Harry Potter.

I have otherwise reversed the 'Animus' symbolism of a boy towards that of the Fallen 'Anima,' to have Valak manifesting as a school-girl Succubus Art Muse, who frequents an infernal Art-school of the dream, which is a Pop-Surrealist fusion between St Trinian's and Hogwarts.

The abstract symbol around the border is the seal of Valak, which is derived from the medieval grimoire, entitled the Goetia.
