This pagan altar measures 15.5 x 16 x 5.5 with the shelf sticking out 3.5 inches.
Made of solid pine and entirely from scratch. All the wood working done at Oreamnos Oddities is by hand, we never buy wood items to re-sell as all of them are made on site.
This altar is incredibly solid as it is made of real wood. If tended to properly it will last several life times. Shipping is included in the sale price.
I only have one of these available. If you want an altar like this with a different rune please contact me directly as I am always happy to fill custom orders.
I have used a saw to hand cut out an Algiz rune in the center of the altar and hand sanded the wood within it. The Algiz rune is used for Protection and literally means "elk". It is a rune from within the oldest forms of the runic alphabets; the Elder Futhark.
There are two pre-drilled holes for where you will need to screw it into a wall. I am not selling this piece with screws as the hardware needed will vary depending on what material your wall is made out of.
You can find more elder futhark rune meanings in the drop down menu on my website.
A description of the Algiz rune:
Protection, shelter, opportunity to grow, safe refuge, awakening, connection with the gods, teachings of the divine, warding off evil, success through quest, defense.
This rune is most commonly used for protection. You can also use it to channel energies appropriately, to contain emotions to over come obstacles and to resist temptations.
