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. ^_^

Senebty!

I have finally cleaned out Heru-sa-Aset's shrine! I'm behind with schedule and am celebrating the Wag festival from today till the 29th. Ahh, how I love schedule...

But anyway, lo and behold, here is the shrine: http://imgur.com/a/6gyck

Senebty!

Thank you!  ;D I recently got that quartz necklace and I never really wear any jewellery except rings and earrings. It made an excellent addition to my ever-growing collection of Deity Necklaces.  :P

I shall deliver more: http://imgur.com/a/VAYo4

Personally, the third picture in this set is my favorite. Some pictures came out a bit blurry, my room light wasn't on so I had to experiment  :-\

Oh, it just looks so serene and gorgeous, dvinekemetic!! <3 And it has this lovely balance of what seems like delicacy and strength. :)

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

May I ask a question?

Concerning the shrines in the pictures: For me those do not really look like shrines but more like altars...is anybody using a real shrine (a naos)?

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.

I fixed up an old jewelry box from a thrift shop to use. It had glass windows so I just covered the glass with cloth and put them back.

Here are some shrine pics!

Shrine corner: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6904421/Kemetic%20pics/shrine%20corner.JPG

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 is the Senut shrine! (Here'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 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)

I cleaned my shrine!

Well, more like set it up again. While I was gone I...let it fall into disrepair. I have the dreaded habit of placing things on top of things. :c

But here it is now!
