But first of all, what's a wall altar?
A wall altar would be a practical and beautiful piece for anyone, but those living in cramped quarters, with little children or curious (and perhaps crazy) animal friends would get the most benefit. Having small sacred spaces that remind us of the magic and mystery can help us to center, breath more deeply and possibly have more patience or show more kindness. Having them up on the wall, within the line of sight, makes this reminder more obvious and immediate. Examples: Near where you wash dishes or fold laundry, in an office or near your bed. I think they are most helpful when placed near where we engage in mundane tasks.
The shelf itself measures 11 1/2 inches long by 3 3/4 inches deep. The longest dangle hangs down 6 inches and ends in a beautiful, glittering crystal snowflake that measures 1 inch across. The piece is literally dripping with "jewels" - Clear Quartz and Snow Quartz points, Howlite stars, Labradorite and Angelite beads along with tons of glass and metal beads. A miniature garland of icicles hangs down over the edge, accented with white and glittering "snow".
This is a GORGEOUS, OOAK piece that will not be duplicated, ever! It would be a wonderful altar all winter long.
Note: This listing is for the shelf. Decorative items shown on it are for display purposes only. Also note that this is a heavier piece due to all of the beaded dangles on the front.
