New: Altar Tiles – Mercury, Ma’at, Three Hallows

Three of six new altar tiles have been added to the shop! I got inspired by the 70c wooden coasters I could get at Bunnings, and painted them up. I used a gold paint marker for the designs, though I painted them and put the felt on the back, before I’d decided what each tile was going to be used for. So some of the colours don’t match up. But I’ll do it the other way around next time, I promise. 😉

The other three altar tiles will go up once I get around to retaking photos of them that aren’t blurry.

Hermes-Mercury altar tile
Diameter: 3.54 in; 9cm

This black and gold altar tile shows the planetary symbol for Mercury, and can be used for magical, alchemical, or devotional purposes, as part of a shrine for Mercury or Hermes. Mercury has associations with communication, commerce, and travel.

The tile measures 9 cm/3.54 inches, and suits smaller shrines or portable altar kits. It has a light green felt backing and is varnished to protect it from damage.

Ma’at altar tile
Diameter: 3.54 in; 9cm

This is a simple black and gold altar tile, suitable for smaller Kemetic shrines and portable kits. This tile has the outline of the feather of Ma’at, the goddess to whom even the gods answer. Ma’at is a central concept in Kemetic religion, and is said to be the power that holds the world together. It is also sometimes translated as justice or balance or order, though these are imprecise.

This altar tile measures 9 cm/3.54 inches in diameter. It has a light green felt backing and is varnished to protect it from damage.

Three Hallows altar tile
Diameter: 3.54 in; 9cm

This altar tile has an original design, showing the druidic Three Hallows of Fire, Well, and Tree. It has a slight Hellenic inspiration, though it can be used on any druidic shrine. The Three Hallows make up the druidic cosmology, and are usually incorporated in some way on many druid shrines.

This altar tile is black and gold, with the design hand-drawn with a gold paint marker. The tile measures 9 cm/3.54 inches, and suits smaller shrines or portable altar kits. It has a yellow felt backing and is varnished to protect it from damage.
