Shrine Kit – Greek God Poseidon – Sea Chest, Artwork, Prayer Beads – Gold and Blue

I was actually going to sell the beads separately, but I felt it made more sense to sell them all together, which is why the second image doesn’t include the beads. This is for those who have had better experiences with Poseidon than I have. But it is a beautiful kit, and would make for an excellent mini altar set-up for those with little space, or to take with you. Either the chest, or the art, could sit on a desk at work without drawing undue attention to themselves as pagan shrines.

This is a mini devotional shrine kit for the Greek God Poseidon.

The small papier mache treasure chest is painted with gold acrylic paint, and decorative paper has been used to embelish the box. It has a layer of varnish to protect it from damage.

The 4in x 4in canvsas is a paper art piece made with one of the same pieces of decorative paper used for the chest. This piece is titled, ‘The Gates of Poseidon’.

The prayer beads are made with turquoise, sodalite, and black onyx, with a silver dolphin charm. The beads were chosen to represent the colours of a stormy sea, and are beaded together semi-randomly.

In the chest, there is a small ceramic offering dish, a tealight, and two frankincense incense cones. There is enough room to fit the prayer beads inside, as well as any other little trinkets you might want to include.

The entire kit contains:
– one painted and embellished papier mache chest
– one 4in x 4in canvas paper art
– one set of prayer beads
– one ceramic offering dish
– one tealight
– frankincense incense cones

Everything will be packaged securely to prevent damage during shipping.

New: Tiny Portable Shrine Boxes – Black with Gold Pentagram Design

tiny shrine boxes

I’ve listed these two together, because they are, in essence, identical. They are tiny shrine boxes, with a tealight, and a single frankincense incense cone. These boxes legit came from my op shop and were, like, 40c each. I love working at an op shop. Except when it is 40C/104F, then I do not, because our air-con is terrible. But most of the time, I love it. :D?

Anyway, buy my shrine boxes they are tops.

(…Not literally, obvs. But you knew that, right? >_>)

This listing is for a single tiny shrine box, painted black, with a gold pentagram hand-drawn on the lid with gold metallic paint marker. The box has been varnished to give it a protective, glossy coat to protect it from damage.

There are two box shrines available.

They measure 6cm x 6cm x 3.25cm, or 2.3in x 2.3in by 1.2in. They are small enough to fit in your hand, and contain a tealight, and a single frankincense incense cone. Frankincense is a good all-purpose incense for many gods, as well as for spiritual and magical workings.

No incense burner is included, but there is enough room to fit a small metal one inside. It could also be used to hold any other small trinkets or spiritual items, or used for a magical spell. It would also work as a small altar table in a portable shrine kit, or to hold items on your altar or shrine.

Everything will be packaged securely to prevent damage during shipping.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these boxes, please see the listing here.

A sneak peek at new stock

A variety of shiny things

Shrine boxes and kits, altar tiles, artwork, and some prayer beads. It’s the best picture I could manage, sorry about the graininess. Listing photos will be much clearer.

So this is going up a bit later than I planned. But anyway. I’ve finally got this stuff varnished and ready to go. Everything is even priced I am that organised seriously. But I thought I’d give you all a little peek at what I’ve been working on in between 5 months of full time work during the second half of last year, and now during the Christmas break.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been working on boxes a lot lately. I blame the op shop I volunteer at. Apart from the heart-shaped box, and the wooden box to the left of it, the other boxes have all come from my op shop. So they were dirt cheap and ready and willing to be decorated and up-cycled. Yes, even the cigar boxes. They are the latest acquisition, and I plan to decorate them in the coming weeks. Some might call this sacrilege, I call it using what’s available to me. That, and someone has actually drawn/scribbled on them, and no one wants to see that.

I have three new sets of prayer beads, with more planned in my head, once I get around to stringing them all together. The blue set, on the left, is for Nut; the other two are for Amun, because He loves a good ammonite pun.

So I’ve been putting together little shrine kits, because that’s what my brain decides is the best thing to do with little boxes. They are, for the most part, Hellenic and Kemetic, though there are two tiny little boxes with pentacles on the top that are more generic pagan, and the smaller cigar box is going to be Wiccan. The heart shaped box belongs to Persephone. She basically claimed it as soon as I bought it, and so there’s something put together there that’s a bit more specific for Her. I’ve also got specific kits for Heru and Hermes and Poseidon.

drying boxes

From left(ish) to right: golden pirate chest is Poseidon’s; two Kemetic, then Hermes; the two tiny black pentacle boxes; heart box is Persephone’s, then Hellenic, and the Eye box is Heru’s.

I also made some altar tiles/coasters/painted roundy things. Well, I mean, if I can get them cheap at Bunnings, why not, eh? I think they turned out okay. They’ve got felt backings, a) it’s neater, and b) it stops it slipping around. I’m still trying to find the best glue for it, but these ones should be okay. I had fun with the designs. I did two Hellenic, two Kemetic, two druidic, one for Hermes, and one for Heru. They’re all done with one of those gold metallic paint markers. I wanted to see if I could do a better job with a pen than with actual paint. Which I adore, but aren’t quite good at detail just yet. The silver and gold ones you can see over to the left are for the four white/metallic shrine boxes. The black ones will be listed separately.

Moar stuff

Artworks and altar tiles. The rest of the stuff that was done drying. A couple of the artworks you might recognise from other High Day posts, where they were offered as devotional pieces. But hey, I only have so much room, and no where to keep them. So they will be up for sale as well.

Anyway. That’s about all I have right now. I will be putting each new listing up here as it goes up in the shop, and since there’s a lot of them this time, I won’t do them all at once. But they’ll be going up over the next week or two, pending enough time to sit down and deal with them.

If there’s anything you’d like to see here, please let me know, and I’ll see what I can do. I’m not quite up for custom work just yet, but I”m happy to take ideas for designs or items that I might be missing. Let me know via convo at Etsy, email me at, or contact me via twitter @sashataakheru.

May the blessings of the gods be with you!


New year, new stock!

Well, I’m back from my trip to Tassie, and I’m catching up with all the things I have to do now. I’ve been working on some new shrine kits and boxes for the shop, as well as some altar tiles and some prayer beads. They’ll be going up over the next few days, once I’ve varnished/sealed all the things that need to be sealed.

I’ll do a preview post tomorrow, once I’ve got everything together, now that all the painting work is done, to let you all know what new things are going up. I’ve got my work days organised, and a lot of new things to make, so settle in for a new year of creative and devotional work.
