    Altar & Shrine inspiration & pics

    I wasn't exactly sure where to post this, but this forum looked like a good catch all for everyone. Please forgive me if I was wrong.

    I am in the middle of moving. Everything I own is packed up and will be being unpacked in my new place over the next week or two. My new apartment is much larger then my current one & so I am hoping to make some extra room for my altar & redesign it as more then a small shelf lol.

    I would love some inspiration & ideas. So if anyone would love to share pics or descriptions of their altars it would be lovely. I always find it just amazing the beauty & creativity that go into some altars & shrines.

    This was my altar from forever ago:


    & this was my latest:



    As you can see totally empty & simple lol. I can't wait to have more space lol

    Here's my Dionysos shrine. It's pretty simple. The statue is kinda ubiquitous, but I fell in love with it. The artwork is my favorite part - all original pieces from several artists that I know.

    I think mine would be more "creative" than beautiful. To start with, it's a piece of plywood superglued to beer bottles. It's not set up as it usually is right now because I was using it to launch fireworks from and it's now a scorched piece of plywood. Maybe a bit strange, but at least I can say it's unique. Also, I think it's rather fitting. I'll have to get pictures of it sometime. Might even have some pictures with the fireworks on it.

    I read this and wondered whether you were my pagan house-mate (who doesn't know that I'm exploring paganism too :P). She's just moved in to the house we're sharing, and I'll be moving in in two week's time. And then I realised that your altar looks nothing like hers :P

    I love the second one, it's simplicity is beautiful in my opinion :D

    Unfortunately, I'm still very new to this, so I have no pictures of an altar to offer myself

    I've been working on my own space, so far it's just an old end table with a big drawer in it and an empty fish tank.

    LOL mine is the top of a tv stand, the two shelves have my cable box and dvds. It's the main altar since that's where the family spends most of our time. (Family room). It also is used as a seasonal altar too.

    I keep mine in a glass cabnet, I should get it all put together and take a picture to post up here. Most of my altar is consisting of rocks and feathers.

    I have yet to build or make mine...I have this electric fireplace in my room I might turn it into if there was not:
    A. Tv on top of it.
    B. More space (Can be fixed with a piece of plywood though I would imagine.)

    It is presently sitting in a bay window space...so It actually fits the bill of an alter circle but it to is not big enough...and I'm not a builder so I cant fix that part.

    I'll get around to it...I still have tons to learn.

    Sorry to spam the thread, but I kept reading "eclectic fireplace" and it greatly amused me. So I thought I'd share :D
