This altar measures 8.5 x 5 inches and is made from a beautiful piece of pine.
It is made to order. Please allow 1 week processing time for us to create and ship 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.
It also has a small hole drilled into the base of the shelf so you can place a tealight candle on it.
On the face of the altar I have used a wood burning tool to engrave the wood with the Web of Wyrd.
It is finished with a beautiful black ebony stain.
If you want a custom image burnt into an altar just shoot me a message!
Wyrd is a concept in Anglo-Saxon culture roughly corresponding to fate or personal destiny. The word is ancestral to Modern English weird, which retains its original meaning only dialectally.
The cognate term in Old Norse is urðr, with a similar meaning, but also personalized as one of the Norns, Urðr (anglicized as Urd) and appearing in the name of the holy well Urðarbrunnr in Norse mythology.
