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.

Post by: Petyu on March 31, 2008, 07:21:30 am
Uh... pray tell me: what's a Butsudan?
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Naisenu on March 31, 2008, 09:11:28 am
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.)

Mmmm, ideas...It'll be a while until I'm that good a wood worker though. But that's what expirimentation is for! *runs off*

I could make a cabinet better than those laminate ones though...meh.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Huyitu on March 31, 2008, 07:54:42 pm
*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.

He guided me to that fabric in a local church street market when i was looking for white, back before I joined the house.

Not at all harsh, seems appropriate... also an interesting kemetic name.. how would that be said?

It looks much better over the altar than it does worn, and since its thick leather it doesn't breathe very well...

OMGs I never noticed that that bust was Wesir (duh) I have one and had no where to put him :)

Silly me!

Anyways, right now my shines and all alter areas are in disaray, I moved into my fiance`s house and I had to pack everything away :(
I haven't done Senet since And I am so depressed- I am working on a new home for all my shrines- Right now my main one is located in the corner cabinet in the kitchen- I am getting the "get me outta here" vibe! I have to do something by this weekend!

But since I am computer stupid, I will just post the urls I have :)

Here is Mom's new shrine:

Here is mom and dad's combined shrine... it also has other Netjer including my beloveds....

Tuti,

I'm super curious, where did you find your Sekhmet statue?
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Tuti on May 08, 2008, 06:44:42 pm
which one??? I have a bunch.. The one in the middle of the shrine to mom, her on her throne... that was bought at a bookstore near my house, they are online, it's called I am books and is located in Huntington NY. I know you can order things from their store online - it was kinda expensive for the size, like $45, but it was right before I had back surgery and before I knew she was mom, I just needed to buy her- to help me through the surgery- I have another one, of her standing with Hethert in front of her connected as one statue, so I guess that's actually her combined name and I never thought of it till now- WOW- funny huh? I also have onbe of Heru with Hethert connected.. what does that mean? I bought those  at Tj Max, believe it or not, most of my black resin ones are from there- or marshalls- but that's when they have them. I also bought a bust of Wesir there and one of a Pharoah, Nefertiti, and Anknaten (spelt wrong) and about 4 small Bast statues there... Oh and my Aset one too... great deals there.
If you are talking about the Huge cat- who most call Bast and I say it's Sekhmet because that's how she comes to me... It;s 3ft tall so I consider it a cougar, which is a mountian lion and I think of her as Sekhmet- well that was bought for $300 from a small store in Cold Spring HArbor called the mind gift shop- sometimes you can find them online, it's hard. they have good stuff, but $$$$

I hoped I answered you and sorry that I was off thread topic :) I like ot share and never shut up... see I am doing it again :D

I saw your posting about this bust.. I have the same one, I found mine at Tj Max or marshalls... last time I was in the one by my house there they still had one... They get kemetic things in all the time, you just have to look, do you have that store near you?

I have again looked at everyone's shrine pics and I am in total awe. We have such creative people in this house the Netjer must be so pleased by our wonderfuly decorated and thought out shrines... I know I was loving every minute I spent looking at everyone's- They are just wonderful!!! I want to ask everyone where they got the ideas, the statues etc.. but the boards would get crazy with answers.. and my bank account would probably empty out as I try and get everything I would want to add :)


Thank you all for sharing!!! I love them! (I know, this wasn't my question, but I still loved the answers)

So I now have to take MORE shrine pics... I have a new statue to add. I feel a little bad, that it's getting tight in there :(
but I bought a statue of Ptah-Sokar-Wesir which is my beloved... I only had a Ptah statue, and a Wesir statue not their combined name.. so now in my shrine I have added my newly purified statue of P-S-W!!! I am so excited to get to know him too! I had never seen a statue of him before- but thanks to Taysat, She showed me where to find him... I have him :D

I will share soon, promise

Ptah-Sokar-Wesir from France, petrified wood, Seraphim BPAL imp (http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/sin.html), quartz crystal to symbolise akhu, white LED tealight, Hymn BPAL imp (http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/sin.html), onyx and Yinepu.

I took these photos back in Feb now my Bast shrine has a matching candle holder and a Ralph Lauren Romance BPAL imp. I have to thank Temwa for sending me her Bpal imps, you made Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, Bast and Yinepu very happy. :) I had to throw away the glass bowl because it cracked from the weight of the stones. I just notice that the Ptah-Sokar-Wesir Statue (http://ytcsummit.com/detail.asp?ksid=434165106&tab=Cultural&itemId=7297§ion=giftwares) would go nicely with Bast statue.

Here are pictures of my shrine from different years, because I have no children, and therefore keep a photographic record of my cats and shrine. About two years ago I got into the habit of doing an altar overhaul every New Year's Day (Jan 1, the secular New Year.) What follows are altar pics from roughly 2005 to 2008. I've added/changed stuff since then, but nothing too major...yet.

This is my inofficial shrine to Bast and Sekhmet.
I have not been divinated yet (longing), but I still need a place to talk to my Patron Goddess.

Enjoy.

Post by: Khentesh on December 07, 2008, 04:38:15 am
Em hotep, Kathleen. *Henu*

Thank you. Your words fill me with joy.

I have had this shrine in my mind for a long time now, but had to wait until my Bast Icon arrived from the States, and wait for some guidelines and clues as to what a Senut Shrine contains.

When Bast finally came home the 4th of Dec, I placed her in her Shrine in a state of bliss.
I lit some sweet Lotus Incense and the candles beside her, and just sat there, feeling serene and filled with awe and love for her.

I do not know how to practice the Senut yet, and will do it the way the Priests advice me to when I take the Beginners Class, but I still felt I wanted to do something, so before I even got away to the post office, I showered, splashed a bowl of salted water (no natron yet I'm afraid) washed my hair, cut my nails, brushed my teeth and washed my mouth with the salted water, then I put new clothes on and my most fragrant and expensive perfume, the one I ONLY use for big parties, such as my Wedding anniversary, birthdays, and such, just because I felt that I simply could not greet her if I just came to collect her. Just like I can't meet up with a long lost friend without trying to look and be my best for this persons sake.
I know it's just a "statuette", but it didn't feel this way for me. It felt so much more than that.
It just felt right to be clean before meeting her, for I was not picking up a dead piece of statuary, I was going to greet my BEST friend, tutor and Guide, she who found me when I was around eight years old and has been with me ever since, sometimes in the shadows to keep me whole, and sometimes (more and more over the years) in the limelight, openly enjoying my adoration for her.
Without her, I would, I think, never have encountered the Kemetic Orthodox Faith, and this Church, and would still meander around Wicca as my only source of inspiration for my Kemetic Faith.
So, what ever parents I may get (If it is not her and/or Sekhmet as my mother) I will still honour her first, since she is the one that brought me to K.O and to all you wonderful people sharing my thoughts as you read them.

As for the Sekhmet statue, I have searched all over the internet for a similar statue, but have not been able to find one.
The interesting thing with this little piece is that it seems as though she has pointed ears, and so I wonder if it really is Sekhmet, or if it is someone else...
I found her in a little corner shop called "Crown House" in my home town. She stood hidden behind a lot of Halloween brick-a-brack, some inexpensive and ugly looking fat faires sitting on toads and mushrooms, and some cheap bottles of perfume.
Not at all a fitting place for the Great Eye of Ra.
The price stunned me too. Three dollars. THREE!
Now she has a better place in my shrine, where she gets the proper attention a Goddess of the Flaming Desert deserves.

I did create a clay sculpture of a seated Sekhmet to put in the shrine, but it has not dried yet (it's this clay you don't have to heat up to get to harden, I think it's called Plastiroc...)
and it is way to large for my shrine which, if she was placed there, would fall from the wall...
But I will paint her golden and red when she has dried (in two months or so...) and she will be seated in a shrine in my bookshelf.

Wow, this answer became longer than I meant it to be.
But that's me, I blab away.

Once again, thank you for your positive feedback on my shrine.

Lots of blessings

Senebty

Hotep, Elin! Somewhat belatedly, I have to add my own squeaks of delight at seeing your shrine. It's just so simple and clean and full of light and space. Gorgeous! ^_^

(And I have a pointy-eared "Sekhmet" too, although I think not the same one as yours. I use it as an image of Bast, with Mom's approval.)

I guess I should post a shrine pic update, now that my state shrine is up. So here's Nekhen Saut-sen Iryt Ra:

- dramatic low-angle shot! (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/nekhen122808-1.jpg)
- less dramatic shot that actually lets you see the whole shrine (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/nekhen122808-2.jpg)

The flowers are left over from last week's Feast of Bast Guarding the Two Lands. For Senut, I do the rite in front of the closed naos, and I use the little cat figure from the top of the cabinet as an image. I like to do set-up and take-down each time anyway, so not having a separate, permanent Senut space works for me.

Here's the shrine room as a whole (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/shrineroom122808.jpg) (taken from near the door). From right to left: Bast, Amun-Ra (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/amunra122808.jpg), Nut (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/nutshrine122808.jpg), the Akhu (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/akhu122808.jpg), and assorted Gods (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/gods122808.jpg). The Gods of the Year are down at the right end of the last picture; I tried to get a shot just of them (http://www.firecat.net/shefyt/shrinesandaltars/godsofyear122808.jpg), but it came out kind of blurry.

Senebty,

and i have cat masks in my shrine, too!  :)  but i've never seen one like yours.

Em hotep Shefytbast. *Henu*

I have added Yinepu to the shrine now, so it looks a bit different now.
Bast stands to the right with one of the candleholders beside her, and Yinepu stands to the left, with his candleholder.
In between them is a tall and simple vase with the unlit incense, and in front of the vase is a low glass tea-light holder that I have pressed some blue-tack into to hold the incense sticks in place.
It's a bit more crammed, so I hope no more Netjeru will claim me as theirs... or else I'd have to put shrines up all over.

Em hotep, Elin! Some of us have this problem. Right now I seem to have Spontaneous Shrine Syndrome - Names drift in and out of my life with lessons to teach, etc - and it seems that every time a Name Who isn't a Parent or Beloved takes a role in my life, a new, tiny shrine crops up, almost of it's own accord. The last one involved the mysterious appearance in my drawers of silk flowers and gold jewelry - which was quite startling and impressive as well. They always seem to dismantle themselves, too - again, completely of their own will.

All of the shrines that have been posted lately are beautiful! I can't recall if I've already posted mine, but I'll have to, if not.

Em hotep Catlin and Riley!

Just a friendly note - Hemet (AUS) has asked in the past that we not embed pictures into our posts for the sake of folks still on dial-up and/or paying for downloading by the size of what they're downloading.  Just a matter of courtesy, not a hard-n-fast rule that will get you in trouble if you don't follow it. :)

And please don't feel that I'm singling you out - I'm not, honest - but you provided an opportunity to remind folks who may have forgotten, or inform other newcomers who didn't know.  

I'm looking forward to seeing links your shrines!

Hotep Riley!  No one is going to kick you off the boards for posting a picture, and making it a small one would be greatly appreciated.  It's just that a link is even better. :)  I have personal webspace with my e-mail accounts, part of our Cox cable/modem package, so I just upload my pictures there and then post the link.

Hotep Pharess!  No worries.  Nobody has said anything about it publicly in a couple of years, I think, and for some reason I just felt now was a good time to post a reminder.  

It could be that with the moves to new servers and such in the recent past it's not as big a deal anymore, but I don't know that for sure.  So post links if you can, and try to keep the photo files small if you can't link to them and have to post them in your message.  Fair enough?  :)

I actually have those sconces, but I keep them in my living room flanking four tablets (two for Bast, two for Ra). They are from the toscano collection for anyone interested and are actually very reasonable! (designtoscano.com) though correct me if I'm wrong.

Beautful, beautiful work Meza!

Save for the second personal shrine and the 'Everyone say hello' picture (which is actually a second one next to the aforementioned one with Hethert and Heru-sa-Aset sit), my shrine room is a walk-in closet that was abandoned when my sister moved out, and affords for its own unique seclusion. It's been a very private and wonderful place to set up this home for Netjer, and because of its privacy is probably why I've hesitated to put the pictures up :)

I'm sure Netjer greatly appreciates the time and effort you put in to these.  Also, I would call this 'Modern Primative' art, rather than 'child's work'. Is that Bast sitting in the corner?

Em Hotep everyone,

  I had to add my shrine to my Father. As you can see I have a bit of a black obsidian festish. :) I still have a few things I would like to add. Like a statue of Yinepu, but sadly I don't have the money right now. I hope I will soon. I have seen so many nice statues in everyone else shrines. Makes me want to add one even more. Anyway, here is my Shrine, and yes, that is a live beta fish.

Em Hotep Bestekeni,

  I have never heard that before. I do have the vase filled to the very top to give him as much room as possible. I have to say it is about 15 times the size of the container the store had him in. So I hope he is happy in the space that he has. I shall keep an eye on him and see if he seem sugglish... If so, when I have the money I will look for a bigger container.

Em hotep.

Finally, I've got some pics!

As some of you know, my computer is pretty old, and it can't handle some of the new sites. I tried Photobucket and Flickr, but crashed on the downloads. I didn't want to post these on my Myspace or Facebook, as they are also used for my family. So...Snapfish worked very well.  The only problem is that you will need to create an account to view the album, if you don't already have one.  Sorry about that.

 Shrine pics (http://www2.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=256399132/a=159405649_159405649/otsc=SHR/otsi=SALBlink)

In regards to the pics:

I use the top shrine for informal offerings and meditation. It wasn't intentional, but as this area came together, it reminded me more and more of the desert, so sometimes I think of it as my red-lands shrine or Set shrine.  I definitely need to add some more black-lands items to balance it out.  The sun is represented in the salt lamp and the round brass ball in front of it.  Water, obviously, by the fountain. The carnations are an offering to Serqet.  I love the funky cactus, which I did dedicate to Set, as he is the lord of the desert and unusual and 'outland' things.

I used to have my Akhu shrine here, but my Sheba kitty kept sleeping on it and knocking off all the pictures.  Since I put this one up and moved my Akhu, she's left everything alone. I'm wondering if it was a message, as the Bast shrine is below, and Sheba is a dead-ringer for the black Bast cat icon (gold-eyes, long legs and all), and is partly responsible for my finding Bast in the first place.  *shrug* maybe yes, maybe no.

The bottom shrine has, from left to right:

1.  Senut portable shrine
2.  Bast shrine (the gold-eyed black cat icon is inside). This is temporary for Her, as she has a designated space in my garden for most of the year.
3.  The beginnings of a Sekhmet home.  

I'll be making space for Sobek soon as well.  I surely hope some of these names show up in RPD, or I'll be doing more rearranging in the house. :crazy:

Well, hope you enjoyed the tour.

Senebty,

Catlin

Last night I was reading a post stating that the Nisuts (AUS) do not eat fish because they are sacred to Wesir (having imbibed his male body part).

Now I'm confused.

Em Hotep,

  I was a bit slow to look at your shrine. LoL I know I don't always sleep the night through and it gave me something to do when it happened. I love your shrine too. I really like the water fall you have on your informal shrine. Makes me feel as if you are always offering a cool drink to Netjer. Kinda gives you that warm fuzzy feeling. :) That is a good idea too!

Em hotep everyone!

Did I hear Dad's name? I have found in my personal practices that fish is strictly taboo with Wesir. The fish is an animal belonging to Set, thereby what belongs to Set is not belonging to Wesir. Plus a fish devoured the life creating part of Wesir. This act tends to put some animosity between the scaly creature and the Great God. In a way the fish that devoured the member of Wesir could be considered sacred.

I do believe the Nisut is prohibited from eating fish (except mollusks or shellfish if I remember correctly).

well, think of it this way.  I don't have a male body part, but if I did?  And it gotten eaten by a fish?  I wouldn't feel too friendly toward fish, would I?  It's true that the Nisut doesn't eat fish, but this is not because they're  sacred to Wesir so much as out of respect for Wesir's animosity toward fish.  Though I'm no expert and I'm surely missing some of the finer detalils. :)

Senut Shrine (http://www.pinkvampy.co.uk/Storage/DSC01969.JPG). I set my shrine up very late in the class so I decided one statue of a very Senuty God would be ok :3 It's a little image of Ma'at. The gem stones are tourmalinated quartz. Basically clear quartz with black tourmaline stripes through them. The contrast/balance between them is very... Ma'aty :3

Soapstone bowl for charcoal discs and/or incense sticks. Soapstone oil burner for oils, simmering granules and the like. right now I'm also using it for kapet (without tinfoil or anything). The end result is a little slower and softer than I'd like, but I'm a bit annoyed with quick-lite charcoal. It smells bad. Also charcoal in general takes too long to light and even longer to stop burning. If anybody has any solutions to that, or ideas for using kapet, it'd be awesome :P

Green onyx mini-chalicey things for libations, and plain beeswax candles at the back.


Shrine space as a whole (http://www.pinkvampy.co.uk/Storage/DSC01971.JPG). Senut part is 'pure' and covered by a very light cloth when not in use. It's in my bedroom and I don't like the idea of my mental fluff being in my shrine. Also it's just plain weird to have a bedroom that feels like a monastary :P The right is kept clean and such but is not 'pure', so that I can make offerings and pray and add and remove things as I need to. And on the far right is my headmate's little Christian area, with a bible and her selection of rosaries.

Statues:-
Back left - Aset (Isis)
Back right - Sekhmet-Mut
Middle left - Wepwawet
Middle right - Bast
Front - Heru (Horus)

I don't know which Horus but I'm slowly thinking of him as Heru-Wer (Horus the Elder) :3

And I love your Sekhmet-Mut statue Allati, I've been looking for it everywhere!  We used to sell it in my store (Along with an Aset which was the same), but apparently the company we got them in from stopped getting them.  I wanted the Sekhmet-Mut at the time, but silly me I didn't get it.  Do you mind if I ask where you got it from?

PS. Love the rest of your Shrines too :).

@SheeBast: I got it from ebay, and think myself lucky for it. I had a look for you and there are two available   here (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pharaoh-God-Sekhmet_W0QQitemZ220351902799) if you were willing to order from the UK. I checked the US ebay but no luck.
(Dur just noticed you are NZ... No luck on .com.au either though)


@Caitlin: thanks! Aset chose the statue... I think she likes the way she towers over everyone else ¬.¬ I did promise her her own small shrine space though, so eventually she will have to be smug from elsewhere :P

Very pricey. I recently had to put on hold getting a statue of Bast so I could save up money each pay check because of the cost. *has currently hidden away the total cost in CAD* :)

Very nice statue of Sekhmet-Mut, though. :)

I never seen it in statue form. Only in a lamp...which I am tempted to make the lamp that was given to me as a gift and make it into a statue by removing the lamp pieces! :D

Thank You!  They are both currently on the top of bookshelves in my bedroom.  Otherwise they would be larger.  The Beloved shrine is a bit crowded.  But due to little boys that love to play with breakable statues, I have to content myself with bookshelf tops for a while. :)

upper part of shrine to Sekhmet and Bast.
i dont have a statue of Sekhmet so the chalice filled with red glass stones is symbolic of her.

Here are some pictures of my shrine area. This is a repost from elsewhere, so some of you have seen it before.

1. Interior of my Senut shrine. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/khesret/3848929401/)

My shrine is undergoing something of a rebuild right now, so things are kind of minimal. The two smaller icons are customs by Diana/Nebra. The one in the middle is an AGI Set icon. The "mini stele" in the back left is something I made.

Custom icons of my Beloveds, Heru-wer and Yinepu, are inbound.

Up front, the two offering bowls are glass kitchen prep bowls from Dollar Tree. They cost me all of fifty cents. Below this, not pictured, is a small shelf for storage and a lower level that contains my incense bowl, prayer jar, and a glass vessel for water storage and libations-pouring.

2. Top of the shrine cabinet. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/khesret/3848926007/)

This is my Akhu and Assorted Gods space. The kneeling gentleman in the headdress represents all my Akhu, known or unknown. He was a gift from a relative, so it seemed appropriate. He is also offering two small jars which you can't see here, so I thought the symbolism of mutual exchange was nice.

The candle immediately in front of him was also given to me by a relative, apparently because I "like lots of candles" (I don't). It supposedly smells like "fresh linen," and while I disagree, the akhu seem to enjoy the joke. In front of that are two sake cups, one with water and one with alcohol (in this case Yamazaki 12 Year Scotch).

Under the god of the year picture on the top left, you can see a Teeny Ra-Heruakhety that I got in 2006 at the Field Museum. There is also a scarab given to me by Pekhty that year and a necklace I made in 2004 that is mostly red jasper and a silver double-udjat.

The bottle of sake at the top right is an offering for Djehuty. It's named for a famous Chinese poet who apparently drank rice wine to tap into his poetic genius. It was given to me by a friend on her way to graduate school out of state just after Wep Ronpet, and it seemed most appropriate to put it there.


3. The Whole Cabinet (http://www.flickr.com/photos/khesret/3848922635/)

You can see the whole thing here. To either side are two painted plaster Bast-type cats. They were given to me by the same relative who gifted Kneeling Dude-hotep, and I've placed them to either side kind of in the attitude of protectors -- kind of a stylistic carry-over on my part from Shinto, where you often see Komainu ("foo dogs") flanking the entrance to sacred spaces.


...and speaking of Shinto...

4. My Kamidana (Shinto home altar) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/khesret/3849848718/)

My other religious flavor of preference. It's not very fancy, but there you have it. The bottle of sake on the shelf there was made especially for the shrine of which I am a member (Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America) and is a leftover from the wedding. We're waiting for a good opportunity to crack it open.

The straw rope should have shide, or paper streamers shaped like lightning bolts, attached to it, but our youngest cat loves them and keeps eating them, so repairs to the rope are on hold.

Em hotep everyone,

I just got done setting up my Senut shrine the other day, and added a few new elements today. It's simple- the beginners' class hasn't started yet, so I haven't added any statues in an attempt to keep myself open to all of the Names. :)

The two pillar candles are electric, as is the tealight. My dad is really paranoid about fires in our house so I figured this would offer some peace of mind. The tealight is in a citrine holder.

My newly tidied 'Allshrine' (http://www.pinkvampy.co.uk/Storage/taiawepwawet/allshrineupdate.jpg), where everything else congregates.

I also have a Hethert statue, but once she's repaired, I don't think she'll be in one of those shrines. I feel like she should be somewhere well used, where she's near me for great lengths of time, a bedside table, or next to my PC.

Tofu, it took me many years to build up my collection and shrine.  Very simply, there really is no need for all the trappings as long as you have Netjer in your heart.  Sitting and talking with the Names in your mind is just as powerful if  not more so than gazing at statues and images.  For me, the statues help, because I am a very visual person.  They help me focus.   ;)

I have spent the last 15 years collecting my small collection of AGIs. There is nothing wrong with using other kinds of statues, just as there is nothing wrong with AGIs. You say tomato, I say tomato. What makes us unique and makes our shrines indiviual is how we choose to create them. I have a small shrine in my house with no images at all, and it is just as meaningful as the others.

I guess what I am coming too is that if Daryt is lucky enough to find them, can afford them, and wants to have a shrine that is beautiful to Netjer (anyway she feels it is), then I say go girl!
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Darytessekhmet on October 11, 2009, 09:14:50 am
Yes, they are.  I was really lucky and found them from an antique dealer who didn't know what they are and just wanted to clear out her store.  Apparently not everyone is so enamoured of ancient Egyptian gods as we are. ;) I spent some time hunting down good deals.  I will only get them if they are affordable for me.  I won't spend $115 on Khnum for instance on ebay.  But if I can get AGI for the price of other statues, then why not?

Mine's just a little table with a white cloth, statues of my Mom and Dad, and a picture of my Beloved. There are some things that remind me of Them, but overall it's very simplistic.

Sometimes its easier to have less stuff, because then if you had to move, you wouldn't be so attached to material things-by having a simple shrine, Netjer is more in your heart than in the things They own. :) (That's my take on it)

Hotep,

Great job on the carved jackal, Bitu!

I also agree with Tawai about trappings ;) My shrine is huge because I've tended to get a lot of non-food offerings for my gods. I'm also a very visual person, and statues and other representations help me a lot.

I will also jump on AGI statues if I can get them for less than $40, even if they are of Someone I have no relationship with. I've even bought a couple already-broken ones on ebay to do a better repair job on them and so they'd have a home that would appreciate them ;) (but I only paid $20 for both)

Okay, so this is a pretty awesome 'coincidence' I noticed last night...

I just picked up two of these dark-yellow/gold colored lotus capiz shell tealight holders. As such, I did a little rearranging of my shrine and decided to light some tealights and frankincense for an offering...

Look at the blinds behind the shrine.

Picture (http://i38.tinypic.com/2a7iwx1.jpg)

...Obviously they're from the petals of the candleholders, but I thought it was pretty awesome how they lined up like the Pyramids so nicely like that behind my Ma'at statue. You think the shadow would be distorted by the fact that there are two candleholders with the petals at different angles, the light flickering, and the statue in the middle... but nope.

Bast shrine:

Detail pic:

I made that statue myself two years ago. I wish I had taken pictures of the shrine those years ago when I first started because it's really silly to see the progress of how I've gradually just congregated offerings to the point where I kept having to expand by moving the shrine to a bigger surface and adding more shelving XD.

The others are much more basic, but it's not because I love them any less! They're just newer.

Yinepu:

Djehuty:
http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/5806/djehuty.jpg

I forgot to take a picture of the rest of the shelf, but on the lower section are books relating to ornithology, writing, and what I'm studying in school.

This is sort of a "commons area" for offerings that don't fit anywhere else because I have very limited space, it's underneath Bast's shrine:
http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/4353/generalsn.jpg

The journal in with the books is where I write prayers and such, and then there's my dream diary too.

These ones aren't really shrines, just a congregation of offerings while I work on making a real shrine for Sekhmet whilst The Set area is more temporary really, we have had many violent storms this season and I wanted to do something to acknowledge it so whenever there was a storm I would sit by the window and burn incense/light candles for him.

Sekhmet's area:
http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/9831/sekhmetm.jpg

There are scented oils in the container thingie (Frankincense and Myrrh, Dragon's Blood and some incense.) and some red jasper and garnet.

Set's area:
http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/52/sethd.jpg

As you can see I associate him very strongly with dragons.

I'm working on a shrine for Ma'ahes too, but all I have is a statue that he told me to paint gold on the mane and eyes of the lion and an antique piece of lion's mane so there's nothing to show yet.

In preparation for the beginner's class, I've been assembling my Senut shrine! Unfortunately, I do not have a digital camera so the only option I have is using my laptop's webcam (which, as one could imagine, isn't so great). Couple that with the abysmal lighting and it makes a hot mess of a picture! Nonetheless, I thought I'd show everybody my feeble attempts at a beginner's shrine.

Senut shrine (http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc8/NoxiousDisaster/senutshrine.png).

Due to the bad quality, it's hard to make out how amaaaaazing my dry and liquid offering bowls are. The bowl on the left is a deep bluish-purple color, reminding me of lapis lazuli. The bowl on the right is a sky blue type of color, and both are shaped like lotus flowers.

I know this thread had it's last post a few months ago, but I hope that nobody minds greatly if I bring it back up to the surface ;;. [I'm used to forums with a strict No Necromancy policy, but I had to post here!]

I've recently [see - just today!] put together a very basic shrine on the shelf of my bookcase with the largest gap between itself and the one above it [as I don't want to set my bookcase on fire if I light a candle there!]. It looks as though I've unintentionally honoured Ra, Bast and Khepera. Everything on the shrine has been gifted to me by either my grandmother or my mother, although I printed out the Eye of Ra for the snowglobe myself. The little brown bottle is a bottle of perfume my grandmother brought for me in Oregon, and I thought it was fitting to put it with Bast.

So apparently I have to write a novel with everything I do. >>; Shoosh, Biscotti, just link your pictures.

This (http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab214/biscottiwithcoffee/Kemet/PC160023.jpg) is my shrine, complete with Bast the Bookend.   :blush:   :grin:
This (http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab214/biscottiwithcoffee/Kemet/PC160024.jpg) is a close-up of the scarab beetle [and half of Ra's head], because it didn't show so well in the first picture.

I have the same scarab and it's always lived on the same shrine as my Bast statues.  What an interesting coincidence.

Hi, I'm new here.  I am a Buddhist with a sweet tooth for ancient Kemet.  

A butsudan is a cabinet shrine with doors that can be closed or opened.  It is a traditional container for statues or scrolls. Whenever I open the butsudan doors to chant, I always get a little chuckle because it reminds me of an ancient Egyptian shrine.  I have never told anyone this in my 40 years of chanting, but you people might sympathize with me.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Sobekemiti on December 17, 2009, 10:53:51 pm
Okay, so I thought I'd already posted in here, but apparently not. So. Eh. Have a couple of shrine pics and me rambling on about what's in them. :D

Current Shrine (http://pics.livejournal.com/sashataakheru/pic/002069y7)
It's a shelf, and it's the right height to kneel in front of. The shelf underneath contains prayer books, journals, and other supplies like incense and oils and such.

I'm ... in a sort of eclectic phase at the moment, hence the Ganesha and Kwan Yin statues.

And, yeah, I know I'm only single parented, but you try separating Sobek and Heru-sa only to discover They start pining at being apart. So, er, They're together. As close as Their statues will allow at any rate. I get the feeling They'd like to be closer, but it's the best I can do. This does weird things to my head, I can tell you that right now. But I was told Sobek and Heru-sa were very close when I got my RPD, so I'm hardly surprised anymore. Figuring out why is head hurty though.

The copper cauldron belongs to Djehuty. As does the white feather. And it was Djehuty who told me to talk to Ganesha, because apparently I could learn a lot from Him. So that's why They're together. I got the impression They get along rather well.

Aset didn't do the same with Kwan Yin though. But I do get the feeling that's my little Goddess corner. It's not complete though. I can't help but feel like there's a statue missing, but I'm not sure who it might be. It doesn't seem to be urgent so I'm happy to wait til the right statue turns up. Or I get prodded. Either works. :P

Informal Shrine (http://pics.livejournal.com/sashataakheru/pic/00209hc8)
And this is where Wepwa/Yinepu is. The statue is Yinepu, but Wepwa doesn't seem to mind me using it for Him too. The jewellery cabinet behind Him once belonged to my late grandmother, so I figure that's my little Akhu area until I have space for a proper shrine. That shelf is actually higher than my main shrine anyway so it's sort of fitting.

My tarot cards live up there too, guarded by a little Sobek-crocodile. And other things. It's sort of my shelf for stuff that doesn't sit on my main altar. Because I have an aversion to putting statues away; it feels disrespectful.

And yes a billion statues of Aset. The two cat statues are not actually Bast. Well, I'm sure they were intended to be Bast at one point in time, but neither are actually Bast. They both feel male and Not Bast. One's Faithful (on the right), from the Alana series by Tamora Pierce (that's what my friend painted him to look like and named him as such), and the other on the left wasn't given a name, but I'm quite sure they're both Netjeri, and they look after my Aset statuary.

My one actual Bast(-Mut) statue sits on my bedside table and watches over my main shrine. Apparently that's what Bast(-Mut) does for me. She and Her Netjeri look after Aset and my shrines. And I say Bast(-Mut) because I'm pretty sure my statue is Bast-Mut, but I've had neither confirmation or denial that it is indeed Her, or just Bast, so yes.


And so ends my long-winded post about my shrines. :D

Post by: Sobekemiti on December 18, 2009, 09:35:44 pm
I believe it's supposed to be Aset cradling Heru, but yeah, the headdress was always a bit weird on that one. It's never felt like anyone else though, so She must be content to have it at any rate.

Em hotep all,

I just rearranged my room a good bit and moved my Senut shrine to a wood cabinet I have, as well as putting up a small, simple Akhu shrine. Here are pics!

Akhu Shrine (http://i49.tinypic.com/15fj9eo.jpg)

Duamutef canopic jar to leave notes for my Akhu, jar candle, small Yinepu statue, faux flowers, and in the back (not visible in photo) a small box to store non-perishable offerings.

Senut Shrine (closed, full-view)  (http://i45.tinypic.com/qq69t5.jpg)

Senut Shrine (open, close-up on objects)  (http://i50.tinypic.com/ok0s5e.jpg)

Lotus tealight holders, Ma'at statue (until after the RPD when I will move Her elsewhere and put a statue of my Parent in Her place), ceramic bowl for incense, two flower dishes with "fresh cotton" potpourri, shell dish & cup for libations, small onyx bowl for other offerings. The empty shelf on the bottom is where I am hoping to put a large box/chest to store non-perishable offerings when they start crowding the shrine.

Senebty,

Laura

It depends on the butsudan, some are very narrow but the ones I've seen in person seem perfect. But as Wosret warned it appears that some are built for certain deities so its best to have caution while you shop.

Soon, I will be working on a "male" Netjeru shrine in another room that I will dedicate as a seperate temple. I also have a "duality" or "balance" altar (yin/yang/light/dark/negative/positive, etc, etc) in my dining area.  :  )

Em hotep, Tai'a!

I didn't make the cupcakes.  They were given to me so I really don't know what was used.  It didn't seem like the normal sprinkles.  It looked more like red-colored sugar to me.  Sorry I couldn't be more help.

They were delicious, BTW.   :)

$10 at the Gay Dolphin a local tourist stop that's been a landmark for over 50 years.  It has maps and palm trees all over it.  Had that African explorer feeling to me.  The Gay Dolphin sells lots of other Kemetic statues and statuettes.  As soon as I get the time, I'll walk down there and snap some pics complete with prices.  I would direct you to their webpage, but it doesn't appear to be working and they have literally thousands of items for sale.  Anyone who has even been to Myrtle Beach, SC has usually visited the store on Ocean Boulevard as it's a main tourist stop.

Anyway, thanks for the kind comments.

I'm thinking of setting my shrine up with shelves above it, but I have concerns about candles and the heat on the shelves above.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Kheper on April 16, 2010, 09:52:14 pm
I would suggest tea light candles and perhaps glue some aluminum foil to the underside of the shelf above the candles to redirect, distribute heat.

Of course if you had shelves made of stone, it's not really a problem.  You can usually get those type of shelves at a tile and masonry store.  I don't know if they have a Home Depot in Glascow, but the one here in my area carries such things.

Then of course there are the dual purpose candle/incense burner type with the liquid incense in a small glass bowl above the the candle (usually a tea light).  
I personally favor Jar candles for this application as I feel they are somewhat safer than a tea light, can be left burning for many hours and are easily extinguished by replacing the cover (if you get one with a cover).  Also you can place a metal mesh net/grill directly over the top of a candle like this, which will also diffuse heat, much like the grill on the front of a gas space heater and prevent flames or sparks from jumping.

Just a few thoughts.

Here is is! (http://pyoska.livejournal.com/209536.html)

Everyone that has an LJ here should be on my FL.  If not, PM me if/ when you do!

 My new shrine! (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v91/catofruins/?action=view¤t=shrine1-1.jpg)

That table has been in storage for the past two years and I knew it was going to become my new shrine table when we moved. Now I just have to make a white cloth cover for it and it will be complete. :D

I'm getting ready to purchase a Djehuty Icon of the same design, so was happy to see it on your shrine for size comparison.

heres a picture of my shrine, its a "bargue" shrine because it is shape like a boat, there is a brown-ish block on the wooden boat, that is where i keep the statues of the main deities i worship, in front of it there is a bronze plate where i place oferings on, around that is some statues i have collected, on top there is a black book with a eye of horus on it, that is a "book of shadows" where i keep all the spells and stuff that DO work, i also keeps kemetic and wiccan festivals and a record of the spellls i have done.  (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4118/4852873914_430a8ea474_b.jpg)   (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4100/4852874464_08e6b9dfc3_b.jpg)

Thank you all! I hope that we can finish the shrine in the near future.

The statue comes from a shop in the Netherlands where I live.
It was near and by the 300 euro. The shop calls Mystiek (www.mystiek.nl) in Rotterdam.


I can't see the pictures on Facebook, because I don't have a Facebook-account.

This isn't technically a "KO" shrine, but on the right (west) side, is my akhu space, and Ma'at resides in the center of it all, bringing together all my practices.

I consider this my "working altar/shrine". Aka Queens altar, aka Infinitrad altar.   :  D

Huzzah for having a better set of pictures!  Found my camera after several months of searching... and it wasn't even in a difficult place (sigh).

I'm planning on getting some nice fabric and making an internal "curtain" of sorts to make this more of a closed naos.  My Fathers are on the top shelf (with an ostrich feather and a dagger, huzzah) and my Beloveds on the bottom.
(http://i638.photobucket.com/albums/uu102/anarchywitchjackson/ManCave005.jpg)

Of course, the whole thing can be seen here.  It's a vanity I sort of inherited.  In theory there are three shrines here but I like the simplicity of the middle section so I'll probably switch it up a bit.  Until then, though, I like this set-up.

For a while now I have been working on making an actual 'naos'. I have already finished the main cabinet which I simply made from wood.  I plan to cover it in gold leaf.  I will be sure to post pictures as soon as I am done.

I want to make a Kar shrine, but my current resources don't allow me. Anpu and Setekh are within a case. However, Aset can't because of her flowers- same with Hatmehit. So they are both on the outside. So far it seems to be working well enough. I tell them that a kar shrine will be in order- in due time.

Denderah-

No clue. It's the generic resin statues that make most (if not all) of the Egyptian statues that I've see. I bought it at a local store, however I have seen it online- at amazon, ebay and others. You could probably google "seth statue" and find plenty that are like mine :)

So far, it's the only Setekh statue that I've ever liked.

I have the same Set statue... I think it's a Summit Collection piece?  Whatever it is, I got it from here:
http://www.somaluna.com/prod/set_statue.asp

It's in many other places too, though.  Maybe there are Shemsu selling it too, I don't know.

Thanks for the link.  I did google it, but got distracted by a statue in the Cairo Museum (?) of him and Horus blessing a Pharaoh.  Trying to track down a reproduction of that, too.  

I always liked my statue of Set until I saw these bronze ones some of you have.  Much nicer than my black one.

Both Neheb and Hefedu have their own shrines too..

Here is mine  (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i219/Iait/Kemet/P1060318.jpg)

The Gods have changed their position and the 'moon night light' has made it onto my shrine (to which I was just informed is to represent Djehuty and the lessons he's been giving me).  I lost my incense/oil burner, as it was made of glass and I accidently smashed it into Satet's head whilst trying to save her when my son knocked her over.  I did save Satet, so I'm not too upset (except for the fact I got the oil burner whilst I was on honeymoon in Egypt).

Here is Neheb's shrine  (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i219/Iait/Kemet/P1060319.jpg)
 and with Neheb  (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i219/Iait/Kemet/P1060321.jpg)

He used to have little white ceramic bowls for his libations, but when he saw Hefedu's he wanted the same, so now he's in plastic. I don't mind, less stress for me.  He sets up the shrine himself.  He decided he wanted he ball light because Hefedu has one too.  It's an alternative light source, that's kid friendly, to a candle.

And here is Hefedu's newly made shrine (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i219/Iait/Kemet/P1060310.jpg)
and with Hefedu (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i219/Iait/Kemet/P1060303.jpg)

My shrine: Its a starter, but I also have very little room, but I like the way that, being on the window sill means I always see it, sun or moon shine. OH, and I had to use my webcam, so forgive the quality.

The bird and the heart,  Ma'at chose the Heart.

Bast -  She chose a statue :)

Feather earrings.. I wear to honor Ma'at occasionally :) - and I wear midnight blue nail varnish to honour Bast. They never said if they minded or not lol

thank you.

Ma'at sends me crazy feathers occasionally, so I got some unusual ones back for her hehe.
I read some where that one of Basts colours is dark blue, so It was quite fitting, and it is beautiful!

I have seen Her as a dark blue panther! She made me fall out of bed with fright. Not something one expects to see as they are falling asleep. I'm glad someone else associates blue with Her as I thought Her colours were traditionally gold, red and orange

Em Hotep Following_Sekhmet,

IF you have the photo saved on your harddrive, you can always go to photobucket and upload it there. Once the upload finishes you have four options. If you click in the box next to 'Direct Link' and copy that link it will let us see the picture.

Hope that helps :)

Em hotep!

I felt the need to clean and declutter my shrine today... Here's the finished product! I put icons away until I have room for them when I (finally) get my own place. Those that were put away really didn't mind. I kept only two Names on the shine, three if you count Yinepu (considering Wepwawet is my Father), that didn't show up in my lineup. If you want to see everything close up and are friends with me on FB, feel free to take a peak! Enjoy!

Senebty and much love,
Satsenu

Okay, what happened to my shrine photo? Stupid photobucket. Oh I finally figured out how to edit my post. Before you could just click a button that said 'edit post' and it would edit. Like I said in the entry below this photo this is my Anpu shrine.

I got around to making just a Kemetic shrine, but somehow, the mala beads snuck onto it.

And here is my long-time Lare/Ancestor/Akhu shrine. Whichever, it's served me and them. :)

I finally got some more candles and incense today, so here's my Kemetic shrine all lit up.

  Kemetic shrine (http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1334.snc4/162662_173286572699463_100000543634988_491625_6475453_n.jpg)

And this is one I didn't post before, and it's much prettier with candlelight.

  Goddess shrine (http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1334.snc4/162662_173286576032796_100000543634988_491626_3841286_n.jpg)

And my "everything" shrine, just cuz.

  Universal shrine (http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs1334.snc4/162662_173286579366129_100000543634988_491627_1207492_n.jpg)

My Ma'at statue used to live in the middle of the Universal one, but She kept wanting to be moved about, until I made the Kemetic one, and there She seems happy.

Yes, I'm a tad shrine crazy. :P

I don't believe that your a tad crazy. Yinepu has been demanding worship alone and so I've answered the call. My birthday is on his holiday, the 16th. I use the Church of the Eternal Sources calender.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Tanebet on December 03, 2010, 01:47:57 am
I have to admit that I never heard about the Church of the Eternal Sources. I am a bit surprised that they say in their FAQ that the word "Netjer" is made up
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Following_Sekhmet on December 03, 2010, 08:33:08 am
I ignored that part, I just go on there for the calender. Of course I've been following their calender for over a year so I just copy what I've already written. I haven't been on their site since my full year being Kemetic came around. Of course if they say that Netjer is made up then they really need to read some books on the subject.

You and I both know that Netjer isn't made up. Stupid morons!

You know, I don't rightly remember where I got Her, it was years back. It was probably from Azure Green or something - I always had their catalogs laying about. I don't know if they carry it anymore. Of course, it could have been elsewhere, but I know it was mail-order, because I still have the box and packing, so back when I was moving frequently, I could keep Her safe.

 Just made a Photobucket account so I can show you guys my new Naos :) *is happyfied*
 
Naos, closed. (http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h378/Setnu-Setekh/DSC_1710.jpg)  
 

Naos, open. (http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h378/Setnu-Setekh/DSC_1708.jpg)  

And while the ickle aligator might look real, he's ceramic (purity reasons and all, plus I'd hate having a real head, it seems so cruel)  and the canopic jar has all of my natron in it, plus the extra mug was some coffee I'd just offered to Set XD.
 
Close-up of Set and Nit images. (http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h378/Setnu-Setekh/DSC_1712.jpg)  

I painted these myself, because sadly we don't have statues here :( . However when I have time I'm going to see if I can make some XD.  

Libation Mugs (Yay for Paris!) (http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h378/Setnu-Setekh/DSC_1711.jpg)

Interlocking mugs my sister got me from her trip to France, and one is for Set and the other is for Nit. They read Moi on one mug and Toi on the other.

Here's mine. Just for gits and shiggles, I added pictures of my other worship spaces as well.

Kemetic shrine
  the whole thing (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar2.jpg) - I use the top drawer for keeping things/icons and the bottom two drawers are my clothes lol. The left drawer under Set (behind Set's rum + cherry Dr. Pepper) has oil in it (the oil burner is His, actually. As you can see, He's pretty much demanded His own space). The right drawer under Yinepu has cone incense and the other bowl of natron I have (there's a bowl of natron next to Yinepu, behind His vial of silver).
  close up of Set (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar3.jpg) - That's an ocarina from the Andes behind Him
  close up of Yinepu (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar5.jpg)  
  close up of Het-Hert (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar4.jpg) - you can see the box I have with a picture of Nekhbet on it as well. I keep more incense in there.
   close up of the center (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar6.jpg) - you can see my little Kepri scarab. The ceramic vase has incense in it and I use the wooden flute in music offerings (it's from South America!)

Hindu altar
Hindu space (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar1.jpg)  L-R: Sri Ganesha, Sri Krishna, Sri Shiva, Sri Hanuman. That's an oil diffuser on a metal pedestal behind/between Krishna Govinda and Mahadeva Shiva. In front of Them is my mala (108 count prayer beads) made of lotus seeds. Behind Ganesha Ekadanta and Ramdoot Hanuman are red quartz book ends (made for me by a friend a long time ago out of a quartz geode)

Blackfoot "altar"
 Blackfoot space (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v607/this_distrust/altar7.jpg)  
L-R: the big red thing in the center is my medicine bundle with various things inside. The ties on the left end are made of buffalo leather and pheasant feathers. The tie underneath that is my old powwow hair piece made of wrapped pheasant tail feathers, beads, and a coyote tooth. The gold shovel thing is made of bronze and is from South America, but Napi liked it, so He got it.
Hanging from the center of the bundle is my smudge fan made of turkey feathers and hawk down (used for fanning smudge smoke). The braintanned buffalo hide turtle fetish hanging from the center is my baby fetish. My umbilical cord is inside its stomach (girls get turtles and boys get lizards. Beading is left up to whoever makes it) made by my nana. On the right is the foot of the first rabbit I ever killed and skinned myself. Next to/underneath that is my smoke tanned medicine pouch. It's got tobacco, mugwort, lavender, elder bark, sage and sweetgrass in it. The two bracelets on the outside of the bag I beaded myself. The top dark blue one is the mountains and the bottom one is the symbol for Morning Star (both the object and the god)

I felt the same way! I think I stare at that statue for five minutes a day haha. She's so beautiful =D

I got the icon from a store online called   Ataka Imports (http://stores.ebay.com/ATAKA-IMPORTS) (ebay link).  

Honestly, I wasn't even looking for a Het-Hert statue at all. I was looking for one of Heh, or a wall plaque (which I've still never found) of Him...something of that nature. Anyways, the description label for that statue has Heh's name in it and the second I saw it, there was just...something about it. The pictures really don't do it justice, IMO.

I wish I knew who made the mold for it.

kytanna: Have you tried ebay.com and checking to see if the seller will ship to Brazil? Já tentou ebay.com e verificando se o vendedor vai enviar para o Brasil?

Perhaps if it is too expensive to ship to Brazil, you can make your own statue. People have used modelling clay, salt dough, or wood. Talvez, se é muito caro para enviar para o Brasil, você pode fazer sua própria estátua. As pessoas têm usado modelagem em argila, massa de pão de sal, ou de madeira.

Currently, I am working on a naos for Aset. I will come and post pics of my progress. This was an oriental themed cabiniet, that I am wood filling in the carvings (well most of them) and painting. Then I will be painting Kemetic things on it.

This is the front, filled, with one coat of metallic black (sorry it's a little dark, the paint is so shiney I had to do it that way, with no flash):

Very nice. :)

Once I get up to CT in a few weeks I will take some photos of a Naos I built from scrap wood last year... well, two years ago. It still has not been dedicated to anyone though; It will most likely go to Sekhmet-Hethert (the Netjert of my City) seeing as she is the only stone statue I have right now of my Netjeru.

I've changed mine..  I'll have to post new pictures, once I have the opportunity to take the photos.  

I have made the top shelf my offering shelf, the next shelf is where my statues reside - instead of packing them away each night and pulling them out each morning, I just cover the shelf with a piece of material (I plan on making some curtains/doors some time in the future.  I found that by packing them away in the box (and the ever increasing desire to 'help' by my little people (children) I was stressing about the statues being broken.  This way there is less handling.

I left my Akhu shrine where it was and re-arranged the bottom shelf for storage of supplies and non consumable offerings.

Here's mine. It's simple compared to some, but it fits my needs. <3

The Tarot decks are somewhat part of a tribute to my Akhu- the deck on the left was inherited. It belonged to my aunt, who was an eclectic pagan, and was the one who encouraged me to find my own path. The other was given to me by a friend back in high school, who is my sister in all but blood and legal sense- my mother practically raised her. She also is supportive and admiring of the Kemetic faith, even if she herself is not- she's a Hedgewitch. Both decks give me connections to the two biggest influence in my religious life.

My friend was over the other day and her computer had a camera in it so I was able to take a few sanpshots of my samll shrine that I have set up for one of my Natjeru; Min.

(I know the statue is not his exact image, but I have had it for years and he does not mind it...)

When I get up to Connecticut tomorrow I will see if I can get a few pictures of the Naos I made for Sekhmet-het'hert... It's nice and golden:) It's much bigger and more 'full' than the one of Min (just happened to be the cleaning day when I took the picture).

After not regularly keeping an altar for years, here's my first try.

I was leery about having candles inside the canvas at first, but after the first trial run, it doesn't seem to get hot in there. I'll keep extra water underneath for just in case. It does seem to close up nicely for keeping kitties and kids out of it.

Post by: Imsetra_Imsety on April 27, 2011, 06:42:44 pm
Well, I do know that the statue was made in Egypt. It is made of stone... But I am not too sure as to what kind of stone it is. At a very close look you can see what looks like chucks of quarts and viens, but the majority of its surface is clear. I use to think this stone from Egypt was called Colbolt, but as I was told in another thread hear that that is more than likely not true.... It is a soft stone a tends to 'sweat' in changing temeratures; I think it might be soapstone. :confused: All I know is that it is stone.

Em Hotep, and thanks for your feedback. I have expanded my shrine (because there was my old monitor next to the shrine, and in that confinement of space, I suppose it could have been a health hazard, if the candle had caught it), but anyway, I still need to work on it, or make a new table, as being short of space, things keep finding their way on to it, so yeah, I'll probably need to get some desk or table or something to put it on, but here's what it initially looked like when I reconstructed it: http://SaveTheCRT.deviantart.com/art/Updated-Shrine-206466101 and if I have taken long to reply, sorry, but something's up with my message inbox, and this message never came up.

Your shrine is lovely, also, may I query into how you pray/offer/or whatever before your shrine, do you do that thing where you put two hands together, or kneel? I was never entirely sure, so I just knelt, as it's easier to read hymns doing that...
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Satsenu on May 02, 2011, 02:59:19 pm
Em hotep Thoth!

Any way that is comfortable for you is the way that you should speak with Netjer. Personally, I either kneel or sit cross legged (Indian Style). Occasionally I'll fold my hands, but nothing overly extravagant. Mainly I'll just speak with Netjer while going about my daily tasks, so I skip 'properness' entirely!

Senebty and much love,
Satsenu

Em hotep.

Thx for the information, I appreciate it. Also (I only became Kemetic Orthadox about 3/4 of a year ago, so, still learning about it, bleh), but who/what is Netjer that everyone appears to be making reference to?
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: MTurner on May 09, 2011, 12:32:16 am
Netjer is the main god, behind all the other Names, as far as I understand. I think of it as a great energy field that surrounds and envelops everything. That's just my take on Netjer, I'm sure others have more. There should be something on the kemet.org website about Netjer as a whole.

Anyway, as for the shrines, I think they are all lovely in their own ways. But they are all way more intricate than mine, for now, I hope to have something better later but right now I have an incense burner, candle, something to set the incenser burner on, and a picture of Djehuty (a Netjeru that I've always felt a strong pull to) and a fractal I did that looks like wings--reminds me of Ma'at. I know I'll have to change it for the Beginner's Course, but that's not a big deal, I want to change it up some already but really want to wait for that to start.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Kadu on May 09, 2011, 01:02:34 am
Em hotep Thoth and ShinjiDai :)

Netjer is The One God of Kemet, Who manifests Itself in many Names that are the gods (Netjeru)and goddesses (Netjeret) of Kemet, or simply "Names of Netjer/Names". With this, the Kemetic faith in ancient days and in the present is not polytheist, neither monotheist, but is monolatry :) Netjer: The One and the Many.
I hope that explanation was helpful for you :)

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Padjaiemweru on May 09, 2011, 01:45:59 am
Netjer is simply the word for "god".  It refers to both the many forms, or aspects, of god, whom we call Names (Sekhmet, Bast, Wesir, etc.), as well as all of the godness put together into a vast, uncomprehensible being.  Since we can't understand or communicate with god in that form, we do so with the Names of Netjer.

Hopefully this is understandable and makes sense, if not, keep asking, it is how we all learn. :)
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: MTurner on May 09, 2011, 04:29:57 am
Thank you, both, for the further clarification. Yeah, when I think of the vast, incomprehensible being that is Netjer I picture, well feel more like it, a "divine energy" for lack of better terms. Is this an okay view to take on it, or is there a more concrete visualization? I suppose I'll find out in the Beginner's course, but I'm just resonating so much with this religion that I want to learn as much as I can. :)
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Kadu on May 09, 2011, 03:05:22 pm
Em hotep ShinjiDai

Yes, this is an okay view to take on it :) I have the same view about Netjer. Netjer is the divine force/divinity in totality, and I never saw/felt Netjer in a concrete visualization/feeling like the one god of the abrahamic religions, for example.

Senebty :)
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Deswy on May 09, 2011, 07:02:44 pm
Just a thought...try visualizing Netjer as a mirror ball, It has many separate mirrors ( in Netjer's case, many separate, and unique personalities) but the many mirrors combine to make one huge ball of mirrors ( thus the concept of many Gods but at the same time One God....

How's that work?  Or did I just make it worse?

This one goes out to the beginner class students, since you're either about to graduate or just starting up. It's a really simple shrine.

A really simple Senut shrine. (http://kemeticrecon.blogspot.com/2011/05/simple-shrine.html)  

When I took the class, I delayed for way too long trying to find a white robe (At least around here, you can't just walk into a store and buy one.) Of course, I could make one, but I just wasn't getting anywhere with that.

Finally, in disgust, I decided to make use of a bathrobe I wasn't using. The very next day, my wife found a white cotton galabeya for five bucks at a rummage sale. And it fits me perfectly!

My advice is to do what you can in a reasonably short period of time, and just get started.

I've been on the lookout for a blue water lily symbol. I like the blue glass one you've got. Is the white feather for  Ma'at? I also like the idea of having notes or poems, which seem to be in the 2nd pic.

Also, since you've got some shamanic items, have you seen Jeremy Naydler's Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts? I passed up my first chance to get a copy because I thought it would be 'fluffy', but it's anything but.

Oh, I really like the naos you have made there, it is very nice. I hope one day that I can have a naos like this one.

And you said you made it? That's even more honorable. If you don't mind me asking, how did you make it? I like working with my hands from time to time and learning how to make something like this would be a great thing to leanr.

And to EVERYONE: Your Shrines are all so lovely and beautiful. It is a happy sight for me to see that the Netjer are welled served and loved. (For most of my younger life I feared that I was the only one out there who had a shrine for Netjer... now I know that is not the case!)

I acutally found that lily bowl at a dollar store of all places! It holds all my Senut libations. The white ostrich feather is indeed for Ma'at as well as for my Parents, as They encourage me to keep to the negative confessions. :) I do like putting my poems/prayers on my shrines... makes them a bit more personal and they work GREAT as offerings. I can't fit all of them on each spot, but on occasion I'll rotate!

I haven't seen/heard of that book! That'd be something I'll have to look into. :) Since I was small my family has taught me Shamanism with a Native American style focus. Wepwawet, my Father, got me back into doing it shortly after my RPD was done. I mainly use it to communicate with the akhu (blessed dead) on my own behalf as well as on the behalf of those that request it.

Thanks for the shrine love!

I currently am working on my simple Senut and Anku shrines, but I'll have pictures of them along with my altar for Bast and Yinpu up soon.
I've really gained some inspiration from looking at the pictures posted here.

I know, I love them too! They are similar enough to the normal tarot for me to "get" it, but "Netjer" enough to interest me too. There was one time that I kept getting the same message over and over with the tarot, so I went to the Book of Doors and....essentially got the same message! Lol.

But yeah, definitely cool...a good way to kinda delve into "getting to know" some of the Names...

I work with the cards alot individually too, as demonstrated with placing them on shrines. Aset "owns" all my card dealings.

Thanks, he really likes it. :)

These Shrines are beautiful and I am most interested to learn where you got some of the statues and the flags? I really liked the Aset statue and the shirtless Set one.  :)
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Taqaisenu on June 18, 2011, 07:20:36 am
The shirtless Set has a story!

Last fall, some of the NE shemsu met at Philadelphia to see the Cleopatra exhibit at thr Franklin Institute. In the gift shop, they had these Set statues exactly like the one I've had since the beginning. Except the sample statue was broken! Ear was broken off, and boy did He look pissed!!

To appease my gift-shopped Father, I bought a statue to take care of it. I knew I already had one just like it, so I expected i'd give it away at some point.

Well! At home, I opened the box and..... "waitasec, this isn't right." He was shirtless!! I suspect it was a defect, even the broken gift shop sample had the vest on!

Since I did NOT already have one just like it, as all of my Set statues hace vests, I kept it.

And that shirtless Set statue has been giving me and my guests the hairy eyeball ever since. :D

The end. :)

The Aet statue I found online after much searching.  I needed one that was remarkably different from Hethert, without the horned sundisk headdress.

And the flags are prayer flags made by Qaitsenu as a gift. They are absolutely lovely. :)

Just a single photo of my Aset Luminous altar. (http://i53.tinypic.com/13yjygo.jpg) I finally succeeded in making paper boats! :D

The top altar is an Aset + related goddesses altar. There's Mary, seven stars for Yemaya, Isis, Kwan Yin, and a whole pile of others. Basically, all the goddesses She's introduced me to. The only boys on there are the two large cat statues, which I understand to be Bast-Mut's netjeri. The two horses represent Sobek (grey/left) and Heru-sa (brown/right) as celestial twins sort of related to Castor and Pollux, which is my own personal UPG, not something from history. That UPG relates to a particular meaning/interpretation of my Shemsu name that I won't go into here.

The bottom altar is my Parents and Beloveds altar. Although there is a small statue of Kwan Yin down there too. Aset insisted. And yes, Sobek and Heru-sa are next to each other (though their heads got cut off with the angle of the photo). They refuse to be separated anymore so I've stopped trying.

The winged goddess on the left on the top altar is my new Nekhbet statue/candleholder/statue thing. She's so pretty. <3 She said She was Nekhbet when I asked, and there are Nekhbet vultures around the base, which you can't see in that photo. I hadn't set out to buy Her, but I found Her at the markets and lo, She came home with me.

Emiti, I just stand amazed at your shrine picture.

Especially that other divine figures are acknowledged and in the very close space, I've had Serqet introduce me to some of Them too & this is simply amazing to see.
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Sobekemiti on July 04, 2011, 10:00:43 am
@Setken: Thanks. I really love how well it's all come together. Shrines are ever-evolving things, I've found.

@Helmsman of Yinepu: *tugs on Sobek's sleeve* 'Daddy, can I keep Her? Please? :D?'

@Tasaiserqet: Thanks Tasai. :) I have a very eclectic faith and both Aset and Djehuty have introduced me to non-Kemetic gods. Aset's been bugging me for Her own shrine for quite some time as well. I finally caved. XD Interestingly, I've never met Serqet. I keep asking Aset, but She tells me I only have Her, not Serqet. They didn't come together. So. *shrugs*

Actually I must take some photos of all the individual figurines on that top shrine. Many are hidden behind other things on there as many are only small statues. But that's a job for not-this-late-at-night. XD

I am Greatly Joyous that Sokar is being recognized by more an more and also that he is being worshiped as well.  I went through a time where I could find no other followers of his.  I started following him in 1995 at the age of 16.  I owe him so much thanks and reverence that I can never truly repay! One of the few things I could think of was to write my first book on him and dedicate my life to him.  

Praise be to Sokar, Lord of Ineb-Hedj, Lord of Rostau, Netjer of Death!

Thank you. The problem with making the pictures bigger is that they won't post properly. I don't know if it's Wordpress or just the layout I choose for my blog. It certainly doesn't help that the shot has to be wide in order to fit Everyone in it ;)

I don't actually have a shrine per say, but seeing everyone's stuff inspired me to dig out my old collection of statues and whatnot.  When I moved to Florida from Ohio everything got packed away and I've never really had the room to showcase all of it.  

I still don't really have enough room, but I set it all up anyways, mostly in one area, but also decorating my bookcase.  Hopefully I'll be able to find a special place for what I'll want to set up for my actual shrine when the time comes.  Here's some photos of what I do have though.  I'm hoping having it all set up with keep me inspired as I take the classes and research.  :)  


  Bast Incense burner (http://i1219.photobucket.com/albums/dd431/LadyTanha/Kemet008.jpg)

I really like your Djehuty - where did you git Him from?
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Shukheperas_ankhi on August 02, 2011, 11:51:59 am
Hmm..  Well, I got Him for Christmas quite a few years ago (at least a decade ago) from my parents.  He's a part of the Summit Collection, but I just tried searching for Him and cannot find Him.  My mom DID say that she thought he was a rare find - it cost her 130 dollars to get Him for me.  I'll keep searching, I think I may have the case He came in somewhere, and maybe there's a UPC or something that will help me find Him.  

EDIT:  Alright, I found one that is similar from the same collection, but if you look at the   picture (http://www.theplatelady.com/summit4/7720.jpg) you can see the differences.  You have to scroll down quite a ways on   this site (http://www.theplatelady.com/egyptian.htm) to find Him - He's in the gods and goddesses section, obviously. :P

Differences that I can see offhand - the color of the tablet, the color of the belt that crosses His chest, the jewelry that decorates His arms and neck, and the color of the base.  Also, I believe mine is more than 12" high.

Lady, check the underside of the base to see if it has "Artisan's Guild International" on it.  I'm trying to remember what the AGI Djehuty looks like and the amount she said is either highway robbery or an AGI's pricetag.

Not from what I can see - I wouldn't be surprised if the price was highway robbery.  My mom came across the store when I was much younger and nearly died from excitement.  She pretty much bought me anything she liked no matter the price, because at the time, she could.  There is always the possibility that she's exaggerating the price now because she doesn't really remember how much it cost, but she's proud that something that got for me a long time ago is becoming important for me again, especially in a spiritual search, so in her mind it's sky-rocketed in worth. :P

Though honestly - my set of Bast statues cost 100 each, and they STILL cost that from what I've seen online, and the Djehuty one is taller than them, though the Bast statues are heavier.. -shrug-  The price she paid over ten years ago doesn't really make much difference to me now - the point is that I have Them.  :)

Well maybe you needed to exp. getting your Djehuty Statue the way you did, either way, you have it now.  The gods provide what you need "when you need it" and not before.

Em Hotep All and beautiful shrines Sekhenetnut!

@Lady- That Djehuti icon is gorgeous! I'd pay just about anything to get an AGI piece of work -well maybe some limit- as in hundreds of US dollars, but not thousands, if it were for my spiritual Mother Aset-Serqet!

I posted links to mine on Photobucket here previously, but discovered only how too easily the pictures are accessed outside this forum publically since this is afterall, the public side of the HoN. My mistake ! Someone had even " pilfered" my ankh on my altar from my Photobucket and stuck it on some other site! With this, I am keeping my photos on the private side of the HoN forums from now on and on Facebook which is a friends only security and making my Photobucket account private. So, sorry I am having to move these * sigh* I love those here to see them, just not the whole wide world use them for who knows what ! LOL

Em hotep!

I've finally settled with my shrines, until I'm able to buy statues anyway. So here are my financially-challenged Shemsu shrines.  ;)

 Bast/Senut shrine (http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa233/pqgmama/Kemetic%20Orthodox/shrines004.jpg)  
 Heru-sa-Aset shrine (http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa233/pqgmama/Kemetic%20Orthodox/shrines001.jpg)
 Set shrine (http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa233/pqgmama/Kemetic%20Orthodox/shrines002.jpg)
 Akhu shrine (http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa233/pqgmama/Kemetic%20Orthodox/shrines003.jpg)

I started out with my Mother and Beloveds together, but I don't think the Males liked sharing a space, so They have Their own areas now, as of 10 minutes ago.

I wouldn't be too suprised if your shrine ends up with lots of different Names in it... Dad's at one point had over 30 little statues of the Netjeru, it just kept getting bigger... and bigger... and He seemed to actually enjoy it.   :whistle:

I'm in the process of setting a new one... but this time it'll be small and minimalist (easy to say, hard to achieve LOL!)

Welcome.  

Actually Nut was depicted as a winged woman with no headdress. So those statues marked as "Isis" with wings and no headdress could be easily used for Nut especially the black ones (you could paint stars on it).  
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Wesirempet on August 26, 2011, 05:16:57 pm
Hmm that is a nice idea :) I think it depends what I think when I see the statue. If I see it and think 'Isis!' I might struggle relating it to Nut. But then if I can paint one that would be lovely!

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Aashemmuti on October 14, 2011, 03:13:49 am
As I mentioned in another post, I've recently relocated. Due to personal circumstances, I had to leave behind 97% of my possessions. This included a number of statues and other icons of the Names I work with (Bast, Sekhmet, Wesir, Shu), as well as other sacred items including the wood box made by my father which housed a travel shrine.

My Wicca teacher (I practice a synthesis of traditions) has advised me to cut energetic cords to these items. This is so that my exhusband (in whose dwelling I ended up leaving the items, and with whom I do not get along) is unable to use them to manipulate me in any way. I have done so. I have had some concerns about what he will do with these sacred items. But I am trying to remind myself that if he desecrates or disrespects them, it is his fault, not mine.

Currently I'm in a living space with very limited room, and for personal reasons have taken a vow not to accumulate Items or Possessions. This will preclude acquiring more statues. So I am looking forward to finding creative ways to set up a shrine for ritual purposes when I need it.

With me I have: a statue of Hethert (my Mother) in Her form as a cow, and a small color picture of Sekhmet. I also have a Shen of Sekhmet, which I was thinking of re-homing with some fellow worshipper of Her, but now I think I'll keep it for the time being.

But it looks like I may be doing increasing work with my Beloved, Sokar-Wesir. Since I have no physical depictions of Him, I'm having a friend print out a picture depiction of Him from the Wepwawet Wiki along with another one I found online.

My goal is to have very simple items available, with which I can make a simple shrine as I need it. There are always candles and incense about, and that makes it feel proper to me. (I haven't any natron, but that's ok as I don't tend to do a proper Senut anyway... one reason I stepped down from Shemsuhood to being a Divined Remetj.)

Next time I set up my shrine I will post a picture!

Sorry it's a little blurry, but this is my shrine for now. From Our Left to Right is Bast, Iset, Set, and Anpu

@ Aashemmuti

Good for you! I can only imagine how hard that is. I'm in a current situation where I am in the process of preparing to get out of dodge and my shrine items are the most important thing to me of my possessions. I would be heart broken if I had to leave them behind. It's not because they are "pretty" or "neat" but we form those connections to them, they aren't objects...

I know when I do get out of here I'll have to spend a lot of time cleaning the energies that they have built here so that they have wholesome energy to share in my new home.

You have a strength that I really admire and that I hope I have in the next few weeks to continue where I am going.

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Jasmine on October 27, 2011, 10:01:08 am
Devo - They are a set of new statues that I've come across. The Iset statue is from the same design.
Set (http://www.amazon.com/Ancient-Egyptian-Statue-Chaos-Darkness/dp/B005WW8T72/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1319727545&sr=1-2)  
  Bastet (http://www.amazon.com/Egyptian-Bronze-Bastet-Collectible-Sculpture/dp/B001S5EZW0/ref=sr_1_19?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1319727755&sr=1-19)  
  Anpu (http://www.amazon.com/Egyptian-Bronze-Anubis-Collectible-Sculpture/dp/B001S5EZTI/ref=sr_1_12?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1319728080&sr=1-12)
  Iset (http://www.amazon.com/Standing-Statue-Egyptian-Goddess-Bronze/dp/B004TTPJDQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1319728108&sr=1-2)  

That is a better picture of him. I've been tempted to set up some other shrines once I move with the Bast and Anpu statues from this set as well. They are all so beautiful, and they just spoke so clearly and loudly to me! Especially Iset.

I'll get some better pictures of them once I start packing everything up since the details on Bast and Anpu are amazing to me :D

This is the Bast and Anpu statues I'm thinking of getting:
  Bast (http://www.amazon.com/Bastet-Egyptian-Figurine-Bronze-Powder/dp/B005RQYU44/ref=sr_1_29?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1319727835&sr=1-29)

Uhm... I'll probably be flogged to death with cotton now, but does that Set statue really have dog's ears and a canine's muzzle complete with a doggy nose? For to me, that statue looks much more like an irate jackal-type, but not like Father... No square ears, but semi-canine feet with claws... I'm confused.

Uhm. To be precise: it is a gorgeously made statue and definitely shrine-worthy, oh yes. It's just that I would never see it to depict Set looking at it. *dives for cover*

Edit: I just saw the prices. Ouch... I never knew these statues are so expensive over in the U.S... and have you seen those adorable plush gods' animals (http://www.amazon.com/Black-Anubis-Puppy-Egyptian-Stuffed/dp/B004O5HEAG/ref=pd_sim_sbs_hg_7/184-3893742-1342135)?

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Devo on November 13, 2011, 05:08:11 pm
Petyu- I had wondered the same thing, which is why I had asked for clarification. There are times when Set is depicted more canine like- but in my experience, his nose/muzzle is far more delicate and thin than the avg. jackal depiction. Both in AE art and UPG. But I have no clue what the original artist/creator of the statue was intending. That seems to be the biggest issue with modern iconography.

-Devo
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Petyu on November 14, 2011, 08:47:59 am
Well, I see it as a modern interpretation of the Netjeru. I am sure that Father would give me a good wallop around the head if I put that statue in shrine, but that is me and me only.

All those statues look very... uhm... animorphic to me. With the semi-animal feet, the heads depicting a realistic animal instead of the iconography. They are very well-done, but I'd never recognize Set in the Set one. Baaah... pedantic ol' German Set kids, eh? ^^
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Satsenu on November 18, 2011, 06:45:21 pm
I think the "Set as canine" comes from the idea of His animal being the salawa. <3 LOVE them! I haven't had experience with Set but I have with the Set-beast and It is most impressive. :)
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Petyu on November 19, 2011, 06:52:42 am
Even the sawala has square ears and the downcurved snout... hmmm. I won't question artists, it's no use, because they create ART and not statues. :)

Well, I've held off long enough with not sharing my shrine. I currently have a neutral shrine and have an ankh on the way to set in the middle. I usually draw out an ankh before senut for use, until I get a permanent one.
Soon, though, it will be packed up and I will be whisked away back into the proverbial broom closet with any and all pagan, KO and wiccan doings.. blech! It is very simple, but I love it!

Thank you so much!  :D  My Serqet statue was   a rescue off Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/transaction/48045246).  It took me a whole weekend to strip the paint off, repair, and repaint her, but I'm really happy with the results!

It is indeed! :D Ekunyi originally got it for Nut, Who did not like it as much as we all hoped, but it got passed along to Hethert-Nut, Who loves it. ^_^ I adore it and think it fits Her perfectly.

I guess I will post a picture of what my shrine looks like thus far. (I feel like such a novice though…)

My shrine right now (http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll91/EarthListener/Pagan%20Spirituality/Zeokemetic.jpg)

I also am working on a more proper akhu shrine but I’m having some trouble making it seem right, but that may take some time. Right now it mostly only has a candle, a fragrance oil  burner (smoke incense and these lungs do not get along), and a somewhat stereotypical Native American statue (for my father’s side of the family since the only thing I know about him is he was Cherokee since he left my mother when she got pregnant with me and I haven‘t been able to find him).

I am actually going to build shelves for the 5 beloveds and circle them with Nut being on top. It will be really cool when I am done. As for Sekhmet, *blushes* I got her from TJMaxx a long time ago when they sold a ton of Egyptian stuff.

Post by: Tahesatmuti on February 26, 2012, 05:55:04 pm
What I did foran image of Nebet-Het is print a picture of Her that resonated with me (for me, the more historically accurate the representation, the better) onto photo paper and put it in a picture frame. Since I don't honor Her a lot, it works for me. From what I hear, statues of Her are really hard to find.  Heck, finding a picture I liked of Her even proved difficult, but I did find one. Or if, you're artistically inclined you can make your own (I'm not.) There are people online who you could commission to make a statue for you, but from I heard, this can be pricey. (I never had one made for me. I live on retail money and that's not a lot.)  :)

I've never thought of printing or drawing pictures of the Names before. :confused: I've been worried for ages about affording statues because money is extremely tight. I'm not worried now, I can just get one or two small statues, once I know who my Parents are hopefully in the near future. This thread has helped me so much. Thankyou everyone.  :)

I've found that not only is drawing a convenient way to generate depictions of one's Parents, the process itself also honors Them.

Even if one's results don't look exactly like ancient depictions of the Names, I think everyone has some level of drawing skill that can be put to devotional use. I am sure those who have children of their own will attest to the joy that a child's drawing can bring, even if it is not technically perfect (heck, even if you can't tell what it is!). I imagine our Divine Parents get the same kind of feeling when we create art for Them.

When you put it like that, it makes perfect sense. I have a four and a half year old grandaughter, and it fills me with joy to see her drawings. :D And I do draw and paint so have no excuse not to honour the Gods in this way. I can do them as offerings too. Thankyou.  :)

My only complaint is that the eyes are actually beads, and they are set in a way that I need to keep her turned or she looks like her eyes are looking around funny. Kinda like.. ^_> ... Yeah. Anyway, there's that! When I finally get my Beloveds' statues, I'll show you guys again :3

Not all of the pictures in my Akhu shrine are of people as I don't own any photos of some of them. What I did in those cases was take pictures of their headstones or placed their death announcements from the newspaper on my shrine instead. Those can be found online if you don't have an actual newspaper clipping. If you have anything, some sort of small object that might have belonged to them, that could do nicely as well. Or maybe just a poem that reminds you of them.

I don't have many pictures of my Akhu right now either. What I did instead is put things that remind me of my Akhu on the shrine, along with a book of their names and letters to them. I have rosary beads, miniature musical instruments, a tiny tea set, a cross, jewelry that belonged to my grandma, etc. :)

I have zero* pictures of my Akhu in their shrine. The items they left in my possession invoke their memories so strongly that I haven't felt it necessary to put pictures in there. Never really had many pictures of my Akhu, anyway... =/

For a while my Akhu shrine has been rather.. bare, I haven't had anything to put in it, and felt a bit lost. But recently this weekend I've been researching into my ancestry and talking to my grandma. I found out my ancestors were mainly Farmers and Miners, So I'm going to include something to represent that on my shrine :) I'm very excited!

For future reference, please only post links to photos and not the actual photos. Not everyone on the board has a fast internet connection, and images make things load a lot slower.

I only have a travel shrine because my flat is too small for a pernament shrine:

(the picture is a bit lon because it was taken on my fiancé's HTC phone, much better quality then my Blackberry)

Once I decide to do my RPD I'll have a statue and Deity to dedicate it to :)

I had an idea today   :grin: and decided to add a page to my blog to archive images of my main shrine as I change it over time--sort of a visual record of my growth in this faith. For now, I put up the images of my beginner's class shrine:

So, I haven't shared pics of my shrine since my beginner days when they were very very basic with no statues at all. I'm still working on them and getting better statues, but this is what I have as of today.

I hope this will work, it is a picture of my ancestor altar. The glass cabinet over the altar is filled with things that belonged to  some of my ancestors. Except for the Voodoo dolls, they wanted to go there so I put them there. I'll try adding a picture of my regular altar in a little bit.

I have a similar Maat statue that I brought back all the way from Cairo. I loved being in one of the shops at the bazaar there where they tried to tell me every statue "is Isis" and I was able to politely give them the correct information (yes, they tried to pass Maat off as Auset too!)

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Iaityinepu on December 21, 2012, 10:33:53 am
Setken, most of my statues are from Cairo.  It was a great experience at the bazaar.  One of the guys was such a great actor - he even pulled out the tears saying that he was already giving it to us for less than he paid for them, and then dropped the price more and threw in some scarabs.   We ended up buying most of them off him, just because he gave us a great experience.

My Ma'at statue was a gift from my sister in law, who happily exclaimed that it was a statue of Isis that she had found especially for me.

I have to admit, I got so inspired by all your beautiful shrines, that I am going to change mine very soon. But still I wanted to share what mine looks like now.

I have used a lot of stone. The Deities are standing on a granite slap, and the little pebbles around are painted in black and gold. There is a little brazen offering bowl in the inside part of the shrine which I am using when I open it on special occasions.

Sati's shrine (http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/2743/satishrine.jpg)

The outside, when the shrine is closed has a bigger marble offering bowl standing on a black slade slap. That is the one I am using for daily offerings.

Sati's shrine outside (http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/821/satishrine3.jpg)

Oh, and here's another thing, not exactly a shrine, but I've made a pharao's garment (http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/561/pharao.jpg) inspired be the film "the ten comandements" (http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/7457305).

thank you for the compliments. :)

There is actually a very good little german Online-Shop for Statues and all kinds of kemetic things. If you like I can give you the link.

I am using the tiny shrine for my daily incense materials. It is like a little replica of the canope shrine of Tutanchamun.

Lovely shrines, Sati! And that outfit is amazing--I was going to say, "especially the crown!" because crowns are hard, but then I started looking at the details on the central drape, like the cobras. And is that hand-done beading, or trim? In any case, great job! ^_^

Sati, would you mind sharing the link to the shop you spoke of?
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Sat_Maat on January 07, 2013, 03:19:01 am
Em hotep Schefytbast,

thank you so much for compliment, too.

The cobras on the tunic are actually painted with a textile color. That works pretty good because you can also add some beading with it. First I was thinking about making a little brass plate but I was a bit worried that it might cut the fabric. With the tunic goes a white linen skirt.

The crown was some hard work. I did a lot of research on the crowns and hardly anyone knows what they were made of. Some assume leather, some metal… There is also a white crown with it which was made by someone else, so I don't have a pic of it. I used copper-colored leather outside and for the inside cotton-damask in a similar color. Inbetween is a layer of a very stiff lining like you use for hats and some steel boning. I tried to avoid as much plastic as possible. The cobra in the front is also made out of papier-mâché with a burlap lining. Anything else would have been too heavy. The cobra is removable for transport since it had to be suited for traveling.

The problem was that I had to make it via "telediagnosis" so it had to be a bit flexible. If I could have made it directly to the person, I would have probably used raw leather (and then again pigskin would have been impure) and stiffened it with wax and hot water.


Em hotep  MiMafdet,

I don't know if it is ok to post the link here, so if not I will remove it immediately.
The Shop is Pharaonenland.de (http://www.pharaonenland.de)

Thanks again for letting me share this with you!

Senebty,
Sati

I didn't have the cloths in them yet when I took these photos. I do now. Other than that, they're the same. :)

Finally rededicated my shrine after a long Senut hiatus. Moved it to the basement, because there is much more room down there. Got some new statuary for it, new cloth, candles, paraphernalia. :3
  Full view (https://www.dropbox.com/s/zkztjlp7bdpeulm/IMG_20130118_243649_232.jpg)
Here's the   solid carved pyrite lion (https://www.dropbox.com/s/fzj9bubsw2fupil/IMG_20130118_243828_094.jpg)  I'm using for Ma'ahes. He has the green ribbon from His statue at Tawy now. ^-^  I'd love to get him off of that plastic base and onto something more pure...

This (http://s1200.beta.photobucket.com/user/malificarxlove/media/Shrine/IMAG0378.jpg.html) is my shrine when closed (ignoring the bit under the cloth, that's a different shrine)

And   this (http://s1200.beta.photobucket.com/user/malificarxlove/media/Shrine/IMAG0379.jpg.html)  this is the actual shrine.

Yes. I'm going to beg/irritate/stalk the PakMail manager if they end up owning her, and try to get her back. I don't want them to toss her in the trash, even when she is that bad off. If I can get her back, I'm going to send her to Ibu's hospital.

Offerings on New Year's Day. Small altar atop a bookshelf due to  space constraints. Wepwawet and Ptah's statues are broken and I haven't been able to fix them yet, so they are currently represented by the glyph paintings Tenu made for me.

It's a very simple set up. I'm just glad they have one.

Em Hotep my friends,

This is my Senut Shrine for the current Beginner's Class.
  Senut Shrine (Center) (http://instagram.com/p/wFncdZCoE7/)
   Senut Shrine (Left Side) (http://instagram.com/p/wFnxXhioGy/)
  Senut Shrine (Right Side) (http://instagram.com/p/wFoCT8ioIg/)

The big black object on the right is a wax burner which I don't use wax in (makes sense right? Lol). Instead I put water and a few drops of essential oils to make a beautiful fresh scent. On the brown offering plate I have 4 glass cups for the individual libations. And in the center is a carved calcite lotus candle holder. Left side has an ostrich feather to fan incense to the cups and other objects and I have a glass libation pitcher. Also have the Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook written by Hemet (AUS) to keep handy. At the far corner you can see a glimpse of my Egyptian bookshelf :)

I was going to hang it on my patio but since the cats litter box has been moved there I don't feel it's appropriate anymore.

I was thinking of making different mini shrines to sell since everytime I go into hobby lobby I get rushed with inspiration.

My shrine is super simple right now. It's in a little cubby in my closet, and I've since cleaned out the shelf under it. (It might not be so simple after tomorrow, since it's my RPD! Eeee!!! )

You can click on the pictures to make them bigger, I think. I'd take pictures of my old set up with Bast, Djehuty, and Set but it's not really "in use" while I've been taking the beginner class. I still put the statues and things out in my room though because I felt bad that they where sitting in a box. (and I like having them out, what can I say)

My personal/informal shrine I've set up for my Mother and Beloveds. Above this is a display for all my mini icons. I will be adding either a oil or reed diffuser to it.
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f101/Kits_Ryu/IMAG0206_zps1mf8cabd.jpg

My Senut shrine only has my Mothers icon on it now. I rather like how clean it feels. I will most likely put some of my art-cards on the wall that have felines on it. Currently they are stacked on the informal shrine.

Back again. I was working on building a new Senut shrine for Bast from scratch. A lot of hours went into this so I'm hoping all my effort has transfered into good heka. Moved Yinepu and Taweret back also.

The only unfortunate thing is I somehow miscalculated the shelves and now my Bast statue doesn't fit facing forward. T.T

Mine's still under construction, since it took me ages to find the right things and I'm operating on a low budget.

Here's what I've got so far, though! I'm very pleased with it!

Em Hotep to all my HON siblings,
I am still missing Khnum so I am still working on it.  Some people have told me it is a very modern Kemetic version. I also have a wall dedicated to NUT.

They're all so pretty omg, I hope mine will be up to that standard some day.

As it is now we're about to move house so this is probably going to change, but for now I have this little setup
http://40.media.tumblr.com/80325ddcb5ff8fc0410d99be4b29f427/tumblr_nuxetzMMtA1tspgh9o1_1280.jpg
The picture cutouts are pretty crappy looking OTL but that's the best I can do until after we move. There's gemstones and stuff I thought they'd like in front of Their little statues as well as some pieces of jewellery in the little boxes. Set also has a brass letter opener because that's how He rolls. Also there's some ostrich feathers in a small pot next to Ma'at.

But wait, there's more!

Introducing, the privacy screen

I have no idea if I've been doing it right, I've sort of been winging it all year and hoping it was ok  :P

Since the RPD, I now have my shrine updated to include Yinepu and Sekhmet! :D I'm also in talks with Peter Chiappori, of ChiapporiArts, to get a custom casted Wepwawet amulet and a devotional papyrus scroll for Yinepu.

I love my shrine, I think it looks great right now. I don't have a ton of space so I had to use a small folding table, I plan to get a custom cabinet in the future when I have more room.

Here it is!

Another view-

Closer look at Sekhmet's icon:
http://i.imgur.com/V3aWRn7.jpg

Closer look at Yinepu and His scales (I love this piece):
http://i.imgur.com/Fh6MRRd.jpg

And finally, a closer look at the small Yinepu behind the candle centerpiece. He was hand-carved from artists in Kemet and I got Him as a gift. I love it!
http://i.imgur.com/MyXt789.jpg

In case you were wondering what the other things were, there is a laying Yinepu, in his paws is a Cartouche necklace that says "SatAnpu" in hieroglyphics phonetically, incense holder, behind it is an enamel pin of Yinepu, in the back is a shot glass with Yinepu carved into it, my sake libation set, and the silver dish holds Kosher salt for purification. The bottom right is two cards from the Egyptian Tarot Deck, Death and The Moon which feature art of Yinepu and Wepwawet. I bought a new dry offering bowl so I'm waiting for that to arrive, it's going to the left of the candle holder.  :)

Oh also, in the back there it's a real black-backed Jackal skull (I'm a taxidermy collector), in devotion to Yinepu's role as a guardian of the dead and preserver. I know usually animal parts are a no-no, but I tried it out when I was a beginner and now He requested that I have it in shrine, so I decided to keep it.

Dua Netjer!

Ok here is mine post RPD reveals. The covered one is Amun-Ra, he doesn't do photos that are shared. Set is on a box because he had to be "atleast as tall as Amun-ra, with out his hat" on the left we have the Heru's and over on the right Sekhmet. There is also an Amun ram (that is ok for photos) and a tiny Set.
And Set's tiny disco ball.

Peter's the best. My Herishef bronze isn't yet finished, which I commissioned a few years back, but that's because he's super-busy but thorough and committed to doing the best job with every project he takes on. I keep fairly regular correspondence with him all the same, and it's clear how committed he is to keeping old artisan traditions alive and providing good service to the Kemetic community. You made a very good choice in choosing him to make these things for you. I can't wait to see your Jackal Gods commissions when he finishes them!

Your shrine looks swell, Gez. Grattis and nekhtet on your recent Divining and initiation into Shemsuhood! ;D

It feels weird being forced, after a fashion, to have it on a bureau again, instead of inside a proper cabinet with solid doors. My much-missed shrine cabinet is in storage. I couldn't take it with me North for the next 7 to 9 months while my husby is deployed overseas, alas. But, I'm making the current accommodations work. :P

Em hotep nefer, everyone!

The day of my RPD, I finally got to the bottom of why I struggle with Senut--my ol' bones can't deal with kneeling and sitting! My answer, then, was to get a desk. And a good thing! It's crowded already....
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Desk-of-an-Altar_zpslqlx1kjf.jpg.html?sort=3&o=4

Firstly, dear Papa Set: I made His statue first, several months ago now, when I hadn't worked with clay in a long time. He looks kind of grumpy. But that's okay. His headdress hangs by the chair because, since I'm legally blind, I suppose, I like to touch things. Holding onto His headdress is like holding His hand. <3 (Also, He's got my mom's wedding/anniversary ring, since I can't wear it right now. XD)
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Papa%20Set_zpshkuch3kk.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3

Next, Mama Sekhmet. I ended up crying while painting Her statue today. My biological mom was scary--but how could I be afraid of Her?
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Mama%20Sekhmet_zps0v3tiwu3.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

Beloveds!
Ptah. I see Him as a wizened, wise old man, quietly shaping the world with His hands, like a potter shapes clay. He didn't turn out as I'd hoped, but hey... that's part of the process, no? Sometimes the work of our hands doesn't match our heads. And--surprise!--that's actually okay.
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Ptah%20at%20Work_zps0fmtx20m.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1

Djehuty! My oldest known "friend" amongst the Gods. I wanted something simple, and ended up with a funky-looking galaxy-themed Ibis... ish.
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/The%20Cosmic%20Ibis_zps6uivo0tu.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2

And Heru-wer is not forgotten! His statue's dry, but He hasn't dropped a color scheme into my head yet. I didn't want to rush painting Him this afternoon along with Mama Sekhmet and Ptah, so I'm waiting until He pokes me. :)

Hope you enjoy! All of your shrines are so gorgeous. <3

Aw, thanks to all of you! :) I'm really glad! The statues were a real joy.

As for the desk itself--y'know, it is nice to kind of have an "office" where I can "conduct business" with the Gods--or vice versa, as the case usually is. (And I'm totally being tongue-in-cheek here. :P)

Actually, the desk is, what, my third Kemetic shrine? I've used a portable wooden table and a repurposed shoe-bench--the latter was cool but it just didn't work. Plus it's super light-weight (for a desk!) and comfy. ^_^

I rather want to remake Papa Set's statue, now that all's said and done. He's kind of a ham, I'm sure He wouldn't mind. ;)

Em hotep, Asetemsatweret!

I used Activa Plus Self-hardening Clay--it's great, it just air-dries. I balled up aluminum foil into a general shape and used it as "stuffing," covering that with the clay and adding details. Once dry, I painted the statues with good ol' acrylic paint and covered them with Antique ModPodge. :)

Because Ptah's depicted as a mummiform man, I tried wrapping Him in gauze. Aha. Didn't quite work so well. ;)

I'm glad you like them, and I hope this helps!

My newly-revamped shrine! I was asked for more red things... and, finally, everyone is here! I (finally!) finished my statue of Heru-Wer!

First, the shriney-shrine:
http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Shrine%20August%202016_zpsi7qi73nb.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0
I wanted to focus on how Everyone's related, and Mama Sekhmet asked to be next to Her husband Ptah. Heru-wer didn't mind sharing space with Papa Set's drum and knife, and Djehuty--well, dear Beaky has His book-corner.

And, now, Heru-wer!

This is actually my second attempt at a statue for Him: the first one just looked like a songbird. This one, unfortunately, was made from "resurrected" clay--it had partially dried out and was brought back to semi-pliability with water. That made it hard to work with, but it was all I had. And, I don't think Heru-wer minds--it was still a labor of love. :)

Tawa'ubastmut, that's a wonderful travel shrine! :D

Senebty!

Aw, you're such a sweetie, Kham! Thank you! <3 You can't tell too much in the picture, but I like how Heru-wer's turned out--His wing curves away from the rest of the statue, like He's looking over His shoulder at you before taking off. ^_^

Lots of stuff is things my mum doesnt need or use anymore or bought from IKEA. Like the offering bowl is a present my mum got from a friend of hers and it has a lotus (I think) drawn in it. The little seat "blanket" (the white with the golden border) is made by my mum as I don't really have the talent, haha.  :P The whole shrine is between two wardrobes, hidden behind a semi-transparent orange curtain.

Soon I'll be able to have a real naos, when my dad isnt busy working I'll be able to go with him to a friend of his (the friend is a carpenter) so I can show him the small cabinet I had in mind and ask what wood I can choose from. Switzerland is a bad place to search for cabinets, we apparently only know cabinets as "glass showcase/display cabinet"  ;D :P

Many people use the words interchangably; they are all certainly a place to connect with the Netjeru.

All our w'ab priests are required to use a naos for their State icons, as they are Open. A number of Shemsu do as well.

After many years of failing to find a cabinet I like, I've finally saved up to custom order one. I am pretty thrilled to get it, as my altar is in my bedroom and I have never loved having my statues "out" in that space.

Hopefully some of the folk who already have shrine cabinets can share photos of them!

Has anybody ever thought of building a Naos himself? The ones you can purchase are terribly expansive and not made for Egyptian use but for Buddhist/Spirit-Worship in Asia.

I am thinking about building one myself.

My senut shrine is in the cupboard, for now with see-through windows that I will eventually cover with curtains of some sort. My Gods of the Year shrine is on top of the cupboard, and the shelf on the left holds shrines for Set & Nebthet; Hethert; Heru-Dunanwy, Amun, Min, and Atum; and Djehuty. (My Beloveds' shrines will be on the top of the shelf once I get them set up.) Down and left is my Akhu shrine.

Some updated shrine pictures wohoo!!

This (http://i.imgur.com/VvxS3J7.jpg) is the Senut shrine! (Here (http://i.imgur.com/mXEFqM0.jpg)'s a close-up)
The bottom shelf is where I actually do Senut, top holds supplies for my worship. (A case could be made for the top shelf still being part of the actual shrine though)

http://i.imgur.com/4QStCr9.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/4QStCr9.jpg) and this is my informal shrine where I try do a small prayer daily.
It's separated from the Senut shrine cause unlike that shrine this one has no purity requirements. (Doing Senut daily isn't possible due to purity reasons so this is the next best thing, I do try to do Senut as often as possible though)

Post by: Gezausenu on March 14, 2017, 10:29:13 am
After a while of finagling, I've finally managed to construct a shrine which seems to please the Gods and practically suit myself. <3 (I got the vibe from Them a while ago that the desk wasn't "working" anymore--They wanted something more cozy and intimate, and frankly, so did I. This ended up being a process, beginning first with new statues for Everyone, and then a bit of a trial finding just the right bookshelf.)

http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/February%202017%20Shrine_zpsrwbgtvu2.jpg.html (http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/February%202017%20Shrine_zpsrwbgtvu2.jpg.html) This is the shrine itself; I needed both a "pure" space for Senut and a place where I can meet the Gods however I am, ritually pure or not. Every morning, unless I'm really sick or something, I anoint Papa and Mama with oil and say good morning to Them. I try to do Senut every week, but health and work are making that not possible right now. :(

Rev. Tamara, if you see this--yes, I found that rock. :)

Also, I'm amused that Djehuty ended up sort of snuggled up with Ptah. They often appear Together to me, anyhow, so it seemed fitting that They'd stay so here.

http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Papa%20Sets%20new%20statue_zpszz8rlunn.jpg.html (http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Papa%20Sets%20new%20statue_zpszz8rlunn.jpg.html) Papa Set's new statue. Unfortunately the air-dry clay I used and the paints did NOT play well together, but I'd put enough money into both and got a distinct "Use what you have" vibe from Everyone that, well, I did just that. I still like His eyes. And ears. <3

You can see a bit of Heru-wer in the background.

http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Mama%20Sekhmets%20new%20statue_zpsv4k9xr31.jpg.html (http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/Mama%20Sekhmets%20new%20statue_zpsv4k9xr31.jpg.html) Mama Sekhmet's statue. The glare from the glossy finish I used (whooo, it was glossy) isn't helping. She's mostly swaddled up in a scarf anyway; Her statue really didn't dry well. She also ended up with this interesting expression--contemplative, maybe a bit mournful. I'm not sure I like it, but it also reminds me that there's more to Her than various flavors of rage.

There's also Ptah, who claimed the bowtie I always wear to job interviews. <3 He also has a letter that a beloved friend wrote to me, which means a great deal. It's often stuff, relating to creativity, that I need to be reminded of.

http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/The%20Gods%20and%20the%20Akhu_zpskaavk6ah.jpg.html (http://s1064.photobucket.com/user/DyllenniumFalcon/media/The%20Gods%20and%20the%20Akhu_zpskaavk6ah.jpg.html) Finally, pretty much the view from my desk, where I spent pretty much all my time when at home. A while ago, I had a DNA test done to find out more about my ancestry--I'd always known about my Native akhu but didn't really know anyone else, and that made me sad. So when I went to construct a more fixed shrine for my Akhu, I bought things that remind me of all the areas they came from--Scandinavia and France and Italy and England and Ireland, as well as tobacco for my Potawatomi ancestors.

In uploading these, I also found pictures of my shrine from back in August. My goodness. It's fascinating, how shrines evolve and fluctuate . . . I'll be curious to see if this one changes over the coming months/years!

Senebty!

Yes, most Kemetic Netjer shrines are asked to be placed East, while Akhu shrines are West. There are some reasons for that, which I'd be more than happy to talk about in another thread so we're not derailing this one.

Em Hotep everyone,

I just LOVE seeing everyone's shrine pictures.  <3  I'm a big aesthetic person (being that I work/live/breath in a design field) so it's so interesting to see how everyone lays out their shrines. 

I just recently reorganized my own.  I still don't feel as though it is correct or complete (the feeling as though I am still missing something, Tamiwi says it may be a parent I do not know, as Set is more than comfortable on the right side but I've always been very compulsive on balance and symmetry in all my designs), but it usually comes to me why the more time I spend in front of it. 

I'll add some better pictures of it once it feels a bit more complete.

That's a beautiful shrine, Kate!  I've always found that Set prefers his icon on the right side, this was way before I was strictly Kemetic, even.

Ahh thank you Ibi!  :D 

Gezausenu, thank you too!! I was hoping it reads well like that.  I have a slight obsession with simplistic symmetry!  <3

Neheh, I actually originally had him on the left of my other shrine (which to the right of this picture, and I would do Yoga facing him every night for a few months, and as soon as I stopped I had that urge that I had to move him to that side of my main shrine, which was really interesting!  Definitely think he does like the right side better.

Hm, Neheh, between you (and perhaps Kate post-RPD?) and all the other Set-kids I'd be curious to hear if this maybe has to do with whether He announced Himself as one's Papa first or second. For me, He's always wanted to be on the left, and He showed up before Mama Sekhmet . . . Pre-RPD, when I had a few Names on my shrine without knowing how I related to Them, He always asked to be "to the left."

I'm very curious about this now . . . :P

He's on the right for me, because he's "second." I never had any other NTR on my shrine pre-RPD, so I dunno what'd be like then, but I suspect he'd still want to be on the right. ^^;

I do think that is why, because Hethert is Spiritual Parent #1.  I found it curious that way back to 2004 or so, he always wanted the right side, long before I knew Hethert was in my life.  How cool, that you have had the corresponding experience.  Partially, this must be because the Netjeru know we read left to right?

Em hotep nefer, Gezausenu (and Neheh, and all the other Set-children lurking or getting ready to chime-in)! :D

Set is my "First Father," and His icon has never been completely "happy" other than at center or to my left as I'm facing the shrine.

I'm not sure there's any attested, symbolic directional association there, at least from what I can actively recall at nearly three in the morning. But, for whatever it's worth, to kind of paraphrase and humorize what happened during my RPD, Set came forward IMMEDIATELY, in a "GET IN LINE, LOSERS, I WAS HERE FIRST, SHE WAS WITH ME BEFORE ANY OF YOU" sort of way, hence why I call Him "First Father" (Amun-Re-Banebdjedet, incidentally, I call "Great Father").

Heru-Wer is at the right, and that had long since been the way my shrine-space was organized, even before my Divining. Since I began representing Heru-Wer in my shrine, His image has always mirrored the position of Set's image. To me, it's part and parcel of the Harwyfy/Bawy/Set-Heru syncretism -- that is, in lieu of an outright Harwyfy icon that would occupy one space rather than two. However, Set didn't come to me as my Father as "Harwyfy;" He's distinctly "Set," and His brother came separately as a Beloved, so in a way it wouldn't be entirely appropriate for me to represent Them singularly, I believe.

The current Senut-shrine arrangement has Set at left, Amun-Re-Banebdjedet at center-front, and Heru-Wer at right. Amun-Re-Banebdjedet "contains Everyone," including and especially Set (in my "baby Kemetic" days, many years ago, They came to me in moments of prayer on a few occasions as Set-Amun-Re), so Amun-Re-Banebdjedet takes some "locational precedence" on account of that. In any other Parent-situation, though, I suspect Set would demand center, no if's, and's, or but's, as the first Parent in the absence of Amun-Re or Re as second Parent. As an aside, while Set does (albeit rarely) appear historically as a solar deity and Creator, I suspect His settling for second to Anyone in Modern worship/shrine-arrangements (where He is a Parent of anyone, that is) has to do with Set having a privileged-if-second position to the Creator.

Anyway. Rambling. :P

Senebty!

Post by: Gezausenu on July 16, 2017, 09:38:39 am
Thank you all for chiming in! ^_^ This is fascinating me for some reason.

I'll admit that Heru-Wer is technically the furthest to the left in my shrine, but Papa Set is "center-left". Much as Mama Sekhmet wanted to be next to Ptah, Heru-Wer and Set wanted to be next to each other--not only because They're brothers, but also (as Sedjfai mentioned) as a nod to Them as the Bawy, and the only way for that to happen without Heru-Wer being in the middle of Everyone was for Him to be far to the left . . . because of course Papa and Mama do get "center stage" as much as is possible with a shelf and Five Names to accommodate. :P

Neheh, I do wonder if it might have to do with the fact that many of us read left-to-right--I'd be curious to see if / how Papa might express this if one of His children is from a culture which reads in a different direction. :)

I'm enjoying all of you Set kid's stories. I haven't been divined just yet, but I figured it'd be okay to put my two cents in because I thought it was an interesting topic.

Heru-wer was the first Netjeru to make Himself obviously known to me, and Wesir came later. And on my altar, Heru-wer's icon is on the left, while Wesir is on the right. I don't think I put any thought into the process at the time, but the thought of it being any other way is a little strange to me, and just feels "off" someone. I don't know, something to ponder for me, I suppose :).

Post by: Ushedimuti on July 24, 2017, 11:09:08 pm
Em hotep, everyone!

All this Set talk is fascinating, because for me, He has to be on the right side. (That is, when I am facing the shrine, His icon is to my right.) I can't imagine Him anywhere else; He's always leaned right for me. I wonder what that means.

Mama Sekhmet is in the center right now, while Mama Mafdet is to the left. This is an acceptable arrangement for Them.

I have an imgur album here of my new shrine (http://imgur.com/a/cCoi6). Sorry for the blurry pictures -- I didn't realize they'd be so bad! They were taken back when I first set up the shrine. Featuring artwork by my siblings Gezausenu and A'Aqyt!

The top is slowly being added to, as well. I have three small mini LED candles at the top I bought a while back for Everyone at Christmastime, and I also have my box of Tarot cards there as well.

Maybe I'll get better pictures down the road again.

I find this interesting as well! Set and Sobek-Ra are on the right side of my shrine as first parent and first beloved. Hethert and Yinepu are on the left as second parent and second beloved.

I've enjoyed reading where others place their imagery!
Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Iseqi-itw on July 25, 2017, 06:26:32 pm
Well, now that it's official, I find it really entertaining that those who also have Set and their 'second' parent have found the desire he wants to be on the right, where 'first' parents seem to be on the left.  I can't imagine him anywhere else but the right, but now that he won't occupy the space alone...maybe he'll shift a bit...

I decided some time ago to move my Amun-Re criosphinx candleholders and my little solid copper Wesir from the Senut shrine cabinet to the informal shrine space, since They already have larger representations in the Senut shrine.

I finally have the beginning of my Akhu and Senut shrines up. I only need natron at this point, which I will be making with a good friend of mine shortly.
I also included all my materials on the shelf below, although it's a little messy down there.

http://imgur.com/a/Zxizb (http://imgur.com/a/Zxizb)

I will begin performing my rites daily as soon as I have the natron available, since the only salts I have at the moment are table salt and Himalayan salt, neither of which I expect to be ritually pure.

I also love the shared stories. For example, Ushedi? Every single statue of Set's that I've ever purchased has had to be "mended" in some way. Whether it was a broken ear upon arrival or Him wanting me to completely re-do the paint-job. He really does like to remind us that we can always fix, or add, or grow, I think.

Sometimes i felt sad, feeling like that ancient religion from Kemet had finished, and that was only me. But here, meeting all of you, I feel like I'm there again, in the ancient Kemet. And this is the best thing that ever happened in my life. Is definitely like come back home.

I like that the 2D Ma'at's hair ribbon echoes the ribbons 3D Ma'at and Sekhmet wear!

Statues by JBL (now "Sacred Source").  I think I bought them in 2005, can't find proof though.  My 2D rendition of Ma'at, done by looking at photo of Ma'at relief in Seti I's Abydos temple and my choice of colors.

Thank You for sharing your Shrines. They are all so Beautiful! Wow! Thanks for the Inspiration. As I am traveling for the holidays and work. These ideas are great for my make shift portable shrine. As a result of this, I just decided to go old school and write my things in Ancient Hieroglyphics and use the Divine Neterus names and draw my offerings  in Hieroglyphics(pictures). It is not that great. Takes me a while to get the pictures correct  But, my glyps are on point  Haha. But, it is sincere and from my heart.

One part of my Yinepu altar, and one of my favorites. Behind him is a papyrus of his hieroglyphs and of the Opening of the Mouth.

I got a new shrine cabinet recently, just finished cleaning it and moving things over to it last night!

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/341768274947604490/387138613818949632/IMG_9212.jpg

Featuring lovely art by Gezausenu of Sekhmet and Ma'at over the Senut shrine portion, and my letter from Awibemhethert's love letter's project behind Sekhmet on the upper shelf!

On the upper shelf you can also (barely) see my lovely handmade icons for various Netjer, aka I wrote Their Names on rocks in sharpie. Very fancy. :P (I jest, I actually quite like them. Though my handwriting on some of them is atrocious.)

My old shrine cloth is much too big for the new space, so I need to find a decent replacement at some point, I'm not a huge fan of how it looks all folded up to fit the smaller space...

Aaaaaand, my akhu shrine! There are a few items I want to add to it that are with my parents right now (a Mary statue from my grandmother, a toy my great grandmother gave me, dried flowers from my grandmother's funeral, the patch of my grandfather's WW2 unit, some of my great-aunt's jewelry, etc, which I am listing here so I remember them myself next time I'm visiting the parents and have time to look for them, aha)

Still working on re-making my petjeri shrine (nickname for the pet shrine, since they're netjeri, not akhu), so it's not pictured here. I'll edit it in once it's set up.

Also, for fun, here's my Very First Senut shrine.

Em hotep Padememheru and thank you for your compliment.  I will give you the website for the obelisk they are still standing in Heliopolis today.  Don't forget they ounce worshiped energy that was spinning around the obelisk.  I believe it was the energy of Netjer and Amun.  The prayers are put on all sides of the obelisk and the rotation of Geb spins the prayers together to create the Heka.  It is the Egyptians witches bowl if you will at least that is my take on it.

Thanks Zaituwy, and you're welcome too.  :)  Kind of figures the obelisk is from Design Toscano.  They usually have a pretty good selection of items like that.  A friend of mine got a full size Kemetic coffin from them once, as well as a life size Yinepu statue too.

Because I've been recovering from surgery (and a post-op infection), I haven't been able to do formal Senut-shrine stuff and won't be able to for roughly another full week. As such, I've been focusing a lot more on my informal shrine.

My Father Set looked so lovely in the morning light yesterday as I was offering Him cedar incense, I couldn't help but take a picture (https://www.instagram.com/p/BfELCjcFWj6/) and share. <3

I am incredibly jealous of all the spectacular shrines that have been shown on here!

I never felt entirely comfortable or satisfied with my "open air" altar (which I posted on here a bit back), so I have begun experimenting with ways to have a more personal and tight shrine. Below is the third iteration of my shrine set up. I stained/painted the box and plan on adding some symbols to the inside with gold in the near future. As the post says, it is a modest start, but I am loving the potential it has for growth. :-)

I think you could say I got them from Wepwawet. :) They are bronze casts of my divinely enabled/engendered original sculptures of him. It helps that he also then seems to make sure I am able to get them molded and cast after they’re done. (I do have a market place thread here on the forums too.)

I actually have a question regarding Shrines and Altars.

I’m still waiting to start the Beginner class, so I’m wondering if it matters where in the room it’s placed (what direction we pray).

If so, it towards the Dawn or Dusk? Towards the Nile or Pyramids?

Thank you.

If you can, having your shrine for the Netjeru in the East is ideal, while your Akhu shrine is in the West. This is not mandatory. Personally, my shrines are not in these preferred directions, but if you can do so then that is great.

More on it can be found in this thread on setting up shrines (https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=21109.msg296951#msg296951)

I found a bigger shrine "container" for my senut and informal shrine -- It's two identical side tables stacked nicely on top of one another. They happened to nest perfectly and are pretty stable!

Pictures can be found on my Tumblr (http://daughter-of-the-red-land.tumblr.com/post/174387200202/new-shrine-set-up-informal-shrine-up-top-senut).

Title: Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
Post by: Ushedimuti on May 30, 2018, 10:53:33 am
Thank you Daughter! I love my Set icon, He was the first one I bought. When I brought Him home, His ear had broken and I was sad, but then very clearly He told me "Broken things can be mended," so I glued it on and He was happy. You can barely tell unless you examine it closely. And I felt those were very wise words I needed to hear personally.

As for the Mafdet icon... the one on the top with Her in the red dress was made for me by Rev. A'Aqyt when she offered her shrine icon service for a bit.

The copper one in my senut shrine I found on Amazon. It was listed as a Bast icon by the creator but Mafdet indicated that She wanted a copper/gold one. Here is the link (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B073RBFG26/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I was considering painting spots on Her, as She usually comes to me as a serval, but I think She doesn't mind either way.

It's been a long while since I posted my shrines in this thread! Nearly 10 years actually :o

Here is my Senut shrine (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/465503550491852800/20180708_112249.jpg), apologies for the camera shadow. It hasn't changed much (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/468867062090039306/senutshrine.jpg) in all that time (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/468867176707915777/newmaat.jpg).

Here is my main working shrine to Wepwawet (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/468040950166323200/20180715_140704.jpg) (and a close up (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/468040021518057502/20180715_135851.jpg)).

And finally, this is the little shrine (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363728600417173506/404232305343856650/20180120_110342.jpg) that I keep in my living room, so that the Gods are near me and on my scattered mind. Ra-Heruakhty is too big to fit and sits on a shelf above the cabinet.

I also have a lot of shelves in my bedroom that I have an assortment of Gods and shiny things on, as well as my Akhu shrine and Wepwawet's non-working shrine.

I don't have the money for a box, so I am decorating a painted shoe box I found in my house (I hope that is acceptable, it really is all I have right now.

These are really nice Daisy! Very welcoming places for Netjer.

 I also think the Netjer don't care (or as much as we humans do at times) about what we use when we make shrines devoted to Them. They want US, and our love.

PS: I've used a large cigar box and an empty tarot box for travel shrines, as well as having most of my shrine tables from resale shops.

Em Hotep everyone

this is probably my favorite thread of the forum hehehhehe all of your shrines are beautiful!

This is my shrine on a regular basis (BEFORE RPD), I change it as I need it for the festivals, Heka and rituals. The images are of Aset, Nebt-het (yes I know about the yellow taboo, but I checked with Her if that would be a problem and  it is all good) and Yinepu.

Here is how my shrine is set for the Wesirian Mysteries:

currently at university, so apologies for the very obvious "this was constructed in a struggling student's closet" aesthetic, but here's (https://imgur.com/a/gdwDV2u) my setup! working on getting better/more statues, but until then (most likely when i'm able to safely and openly practice) i've got the paper mural icons.

your setup is beautiful and never feel like you have to apologize for it.

thank you very much! i appreciate that a lot.

Very nice. Could you explain who is the star hawk and lioness?

thank you as well! the star hawk is Heru, Bull of the Heavens, a form of Heru that reigns over Saturn and is referenced in the Dendera murals. that depiction of Him was done by Anaputuwet based on UPG appearance. the lioness is Repyt.

Beautiful shrine, Redi!

(And beautiful name! However did I miss that? :D )

Is "your" Min a Min-Heru, Amun-Re-Kamutef, or "just Min," if you don't mind my asking?

Senebty!

Here's my senut shrine!!! It's not my first one, but it's the prettiest so far! I'm still aiming to get some 3" bowls instead of sake cups, plus it has room for a picture or two if I ever want to/feel pulled to add some.

I also have a second shrine, but I'm waiting on some stuff for it and it's kinda messy so I'm not gonna show it today ^^

Also, I almost forgot! My akhu and netjeri shrines!

I like all the photos and notes, Capra!  Mine is pretty minimalist, something I'd like to work on.

I've got both birth and adopted family so this is a veeeeery pared down version. The tin holds other pics and obits I couldn't include on the wall. :D
