I've noticed there's an increase in Kemetics on the pimp my altar Livejournal. Some beautiful shrines on there.

But at the end of the day they're not there to display pretty knick knacks, they're there for a reason, and even the most boring cluttered shrine will serve it's purpose to it's owner! :)

Or the most simple one!  This was my shrine as a beginner:

Heck, Ubenetsenu has a mini-shrine she made out of an Altoid tin.  It's between you and your gods.

Mmm, that looks delicious, Tek! :D

I loved using the insence diffuser in my first shrine, because it combined the candle and insence components. I've grown very fond of insence smoke though, so I'm switching to stick insence (if I ever set my shrine up again ... sigh).

I love looking at altar pictures, they are very inspiring. That said some of the best ones I have seen aren’t Kemetic. Look up Buddhist and Hindu altars in google image, they are gorgeous. I have a whole file on my computer with altar pictures from Asatru to Zoroastroism, there are lots of great ideas out there and most of them are applicable to Kemeticism. Also as Claudia said the livejournal group Pimp my altar has some great stuff too.

Additionally has anyone looked into buy a Butsudan for a Kemetic Altar? I think it would be a perfect Naos.

They appear to be shrines the practitioners of Buddhism use. I see a lot coming from the Japanese branch of Buddhism. They basically seem to look like a good naos box too.

Here's one website that makes and sells their own: http://www.butsudan.com/

Btw, I had to look that up too - no idea what a butsudan was. :)

Wow, these are extraordinary!  Of course, the one I like (SE-40 Black Lacquered) is $2350.00.  I sure hope my Mother isn't paying attention right now.  That much money is a bit above my price range.   :crazy:

Em hotep!

I mentioned once to Ikhet (who practices Shinto, I think? in addition to Kemetic Orthodoxy) that I loved shrines like that, and he warned me that those shrines are often made specifically for certain Dieties. So be careful when shopping, in case you get a shrine that's supposed to be for Someone Else. ;)

Those are very, very beautiful... but they don't look very deep. From the images on the website, it doesn't look like the *inside* of the butsudan's have a footprint of more then a few inches. (Which, I'm sure, probably works perfectly for the Buddhists' they're in the market for.)

*palm to forehead* Ya I probably should have mentioned what a butsudan was :p

When I was living in Orlando (Fl) I would go to the oriental market all the time. There is a huge selection of butsudans, tall ones, thick ones, classic ornate wood work and ultramodern ones, and compared to the prices on that website far less expensive. Some of the Butsudans could be as big as 4 ft tall and 3 ft deep with shelves carved in the inside and doors. But the ones I was looking at was more for people from Vietnam, there are probably multiple styles I imagine depending on your regions.
