ART: Ithyphallic mummiform Nit/Neith

Based on a conversation over at The Cauldron, and our ponderings of ithyphallic and mummiform gods, and pondering also why no goddesses are portrayed as mummiform. Sekhmet-Min is a handwavey syncretic case idk but that’s the only example I can find, except for that one picture of ithyphallic Nit that I’m not sure is Nit, […]

Progress is being made

So, a few things. Mostly, things are going okay. I think the shrines have settled down into a configuration I’m happy to work with for the time being, so I’ll get on to the State of the Shrines post this week, just so that’s one less thing I need to worry about. I’ve been posting […]

Art (draft): Isis Smiting Her Enemies

This is based on the dream I wrote about previously. I felt an urge to begin drawing Her this afternoon, and this is what I’ve got so far. The perspective’s a bit … off, in terms of what was meant to be in what hand, but I was more concerned about the pose and how […]

This is my Sobek part 1: Feraligatr and Lugia

So I hadn’t intended to get to this particular post until later, but fuck it, it’s Pokémon’s 20th anniversary today, and I am all Pokémon nostalgic because I just got Blue, Red, and Yellow on my 3DS, and have started Blue, the first Pokémon game I ever played. I have my original Bulbasaur starter back, […]

Happy Birthday, Sobek! :D

Just did a simple rite for Him this evening, though it was later than I had planned for, due to unexpected relatives dropping by (at some point unknown!) and I didn’t want to be interrupted. I kinda hoped all they wanted to do was drop something off and then leave, which they did, but I […]

Sobek’s Birthday

Woo! So my calendar has a festival for Sobek’s birthday in January (Jan 12th/IV Shomu 16), and again in July (July 10th/II Peret 10). So as it’s this Wednesday, followed by a processional festival, I’ve been preparing offerings and hymns and such. I’m planning for some sort of chicken dish on Wednesday, with rum and […]

Hymns for Sobek and Heru

I’ve started keeping a little 6inx8in sketchbook as a devotional art/prayer book thing for Heru and Sobek. It’s a smaller Strathmore journal, like the one I’m using for my epic big calendar thing, though it’s just bog standard sketching paper rather than Bristol board. I picked it over other journals because the cover has a […]

Project – Perpetual Festival Calendar Book Thing

So, I picked up this visual journal at Jacksons, which does art supplies and such, and felt it was just right for this project. I got one with Bristol board/paper, mostly because I wanted to try it out. That, and I knew I wasn’t going to use much more than pens and coloured pencils, and […]

I has an Aset-Nut!

Inspired by this thread over on the HoN boards. And by Aset-Nut pretty much telling me to go! paint! Her! naow! this afternoon. So I obeyed. And thus, I have spent the last hour painting my first statue. Achievement unlocked! It isn’t the world’s greatest paint job, given all the tricksy little almost-impossible-to-reach places and […]

Box Shrines Update

They’re not done yet, but most of the main decoratoring is done. I just need to add names/hieroglyphs/etc. One is for Amun, as promised, and the other was claimed by Wesir. I hadn’t planned to make Him one, but He kept niggling about wanting a shrine, and I kept saying I had no more room for […]
