Thought I’d post updated shrine pics, since I’ve spent the past two months rearranging them and rearranging them some more. But I think we’re finally happy now, for the moment.Just two pictures with long descriptions about what’s there. Everything on them holds meaning. Nothing is there for no reason.
Also, I will get around to cross-posting my paganism meme entries here too, just so they’re here. They were up on the old site and I’d like them here too.
This is my Isian Shrine. The main open naos (shrine) at the back has … Satet, Nit, Aset, Hethert and Nebthet on the very top in front of a large winged and horned solar disc I made today. There’s also a white feather there for Ma’at.
On top of the two red boxes, we have a cheetah for Mafdet, and two cats for Bast. Behind them are seven stars for the West African goddess Yemaya. The left red box contains an unnamed male Netjeri of Bast-Mut. In the middle is Aset suckling Heru-sa-Aset. In the other red box is Faithful, from the Alanna series by Tamora Pierce.
Left side of the altar contains a grey stallion represeting Sobek-Castor, an image of Aset from Age of Mythology, some pennies and coins, a cauldron, and a bowl.
Right side of the altar contains a devotional image of Mary and some rosary beads, a papyus image of Aset, a brown horse representing Heru-sa-Aset-Pollux, two statues of Kwan Yin, two small offering bowls, a goblet for wine/juice, and a bell. Also an incense burner.
The middle section has more candles, an offering plate, a clay pentacle on top of that, and in front of that, my ritual knife and a clay wand (that I inadvertently made left-handed).
This is my devotional shrine, and contains images of pretty much every God I’m currently working with.
The left side is for ‘masculine’ energies and contains images and statues of Yinepu, Djehuty, Ganesha, Warrior!Sobek, and Apollo. There are a few little tokens and such there too, like dice for Djehuty.
The middle section is for other-gendered energies. This covers agendered, bigendered, two-spirit, genderqueer, androgynous, and all-gendered deities. Currently, there are icons and statues here of Creator God!Sobek, IDEK!Heru-sa-Aset, Amun, Djehuty, Ma’at, and the Mousai Titanides. Behind the white candle is a silver ankh and representations of the four elements.
The right side of the altar is for ‘feminine’ energies. There are currently images and statues here of Protective Mother!Sobek, winged Aset, Aset suckling Heru, Nekhbet, Wadjet, and Kwan Yin.
