As a followup to my last post, I’ve been working on a shrine for my goddess. As I mentioned previously, I’ve been having trouble finding any statues, contemporary or otherwise, specifically made for her. First, I happened to get a little inspiration at a local store where you pick a piece of pottery to paint and the store will fire it in their kiln. I ended making up two devotional bowls.
One is for the river and sunrise and the other is for the forest and sunset.
After searching around a bit, I decided on a small goddess from Brigid’s Grove.
After I received my little goddess, I snagged a square-shaped papier-mâché box and grabbed the paintbrushes.
I painted a river and shore on the inside of the lid of the box. I then nest the box inside the lid to create the appearance of a river.
I also picked up a fabric square to serve as an altar cloth.
I went on a road trip this past weekend, and found this gorgeous stone to add to the shrine. The stone matches the cloth quite well.
I might at some point look for a small wooden cabinet to house the little goddess, but I think this will serve me well for now. Next step will be finding a dedicated space for her.
