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 ITEM IS MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 1 week production time.**
**This altar is made from a beautiful piece of pine, is stained black ebony and I have used a wood burning tool to engrave the wood with a Veldismagn stave. On the back of this altar is a saw tooth hanger so it can either be used free standing or hung from a wall.**
**Veldismagn is an ancient Icelandic magical sigil meaning 'to give power and strength' ('veldi': power; 'magna': to strengthen). Traditionally drawn out in blood on the chest, it was used for protection, luck, health, and the safe return from travels, so that "Nothing evil will harm you, and whole and healthy will you come back home, whether travelling by land or sea".**
**I recommend cleansing and consecrating your altarif used in ritual and to not allow others to handle it.**
**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.**
