This altar measures 8.5 x 5 inches and is made from a beautiful piece of pine.
This item is made to order. Please allow us 1 week to create your item and have it shipped to you.
All of my altars are 100% handmade from scratch.
It has a saw tooth hanger on the back so it can either be set on a table or hung from a wall.
On the face of the altar I have used a wood burning tool to engrave the wood with the helm of awe.
It is finished with a beautiful black ebony stain.
If you want a custom image burnt into an altar just shoot me a message!
The Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror (Ægishjálmr) is an Icelandic magical stave. A physical object called "Helm of Terror" is referenced as one item Sigurd takes from the dragon Fafnir's hoard after he slays him in Völsunga saga. It is used for protection.
