pictures in akhu's
« on: September 21, 2014, 01:48:41 pm »
Is it inappropriate to place a magazine picture on a akhu shrine.
I know pictures of pepole are not appropriate.
Reason I ask is I saw an add in a mag of Charlies Theron (?) Fromg the perfume add and put it on the akhu for my father. He loved that commercial.  I used to catch him watching it even when going though chemo he loved it. Figured he would enjoy it now. So is it ok to leave it?

When we build an akhu shrine we do not generally include images of living people. Photos and drawings of the dead are acceptable, even from magazines, but no depictions of living.

But it sounds like you intend the magazine photo of this actress as an offering for your father's ka. You can roll up the picture and place it under whatever image or object you have representing your father.
