This was bought as a gift for my son and his wife and they were absolutely thrilled. It looks amazing in their living room. Shipping arrangements were excellent.

Beautiful item, well built and exactly as depicted in the photo. Seller was super helpful and responsive. I love my new altar! It also has a nice woody smell. :)

About

What is the Hungry Ghost?

The Fable of The Hungry Ghosts

What are the Hungry Ghosts? Hungry ghosts exist in myths and legends from many cultures around the globe. In Buddhist texts, they are depicted as wretched creatures with small mouths that are unable to satiate their large, dissented bellies. They are portrayed this way as a metaphor for their existence- during their time on earth they chose again and again the path of instant gratification and self-serving philosophies that doomed them to dwell in a purgatory in the wheel of life as a result of their cycle of desires and suffering.

I became aware of the ghosts while researching the Four Noble Truths – and realized at that time that I seemed to be virtually surrounded by Hungry Ghosts- people who seemed to be chasing and living for their next desire/reward: a cup of coffee, a cigarette, a drink, a shopping spree, an indulgent dinner, a sexual conquest, the weekend, a vacation, etc.… There didn’t seem to be anyone I could find that was navigating life with gratitude, keeping their desires in check, and committed to constantly growing and evolving as a person.

Creative Alchemy

Creative Alchemy is the process of change and transformation through creativity. This is something that is very central to my belief system, and has personally helped me through many difficult and challenging times in my life. I am hungry just like everyone else. The quest of the creative alchemist is to change the root of the desire from the desire to consume (take) to a desire to create (give). I have a constant desire and a deep insatiable urge to create beauty through art.

Hungry Ghost The Artist

Hungry Ghost is the creative alter ego of Blue Lawson. The Tennessee born artist lived in many Southern area codes – 865, 864, 828, 804, 404, 504- before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area’s 415 in 2010. Now found splitting time between the farms, forests and coasts of the 707 and the urban pulse of the 415, the ghost is steady pursuing inspiration in painting, woodworking, carpentry, design, and anything else that catches his eye.
