Altars are the center of ritual workings and are a sacred space. Many altars will change depending on what rituals the person is working on at any given point and time. Use this altar as a means to create the ideal ritual working space for yourself.
**This altar is hand engraved with Jörmungandr and centered within the engraving is a blackened and ethically sourced elk vertebra.**
**All wood working at Oreamnos Oddities is done from scratch and by hand. Rachel makes every item from the ground up and never purchase pre-made wood cuts for her designs. Each item is created on site, is hand sanded and all finishing work is also done by hand.**
**All designs engraved within the wood are all done entirely by hand. You will never find laser engraved wood working from Oreamnos Oddities. Since most of our pieces will be used within ritual we want to keep every item involved and create every aspect of it by hand. In doing so we believe the God's will thank us and this will further your skill within your own ritual practices. It is important when purchasing ritual tools that they are created in this way rather than mass produced.**
**In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr, also known as the Midgard (World) Serpent, is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantessAngrboða and Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki's three children by Angrboða—the wolf Fenrir, Hel, and Jörmungandr—and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that it was able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail. As a result, it received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. When it releases its tail, Ragnarök will begin. Jörmungandr's arch-enemy is the thunder-god, Thor. It is an example of an ouroboros.**
**All bones sold at Oreamnos Oddities are ethically sourced. We never buy bones to re-sell which means everything for sale is limited, found while hiking and each and every bone is cleaned/processed by hand. It is important to us to honor these animals within pagan rituals and to harvest naturally as we want all of our ritual pieces to be created with good intention**
