shadowofthesphinx's Shop Announcement

February 7th, 2016 - Altar statues of Taweret, Bast and Sutekh coming this week as well as replacing the sold Nefer, Feather of Ma'at and Renenutet amulets again too.

The US has new shipping prices worldwide. Until I can figure out a more accurate way of determining shipping weights ahead of time, especially on combined items (2 or more) please know that if the shipping charge is more than the actual label cost, I will reimburse the overage to you at the time I purchase your shipping label. Thank you!

New customers, as you look about please remember all of my statues can be created in a variety of sizes and prices! If a larger piece is out of range for you, or a mini statue not quite enough, please ask about having one custom made for your altar or shrine. Thank you!

Until the next. . .

Welcome to Shadow of the Sphinx

The statues and pieces in my shop are always changing! Please consult the sold items for other examples of my work, especially the array of custom pieces I have completed. And keep in mind that the sizes vary from piece to piece. If you see something in the shop that is larger or smaller than you wish, just convo me about creating something just the right size for YOU. From Mini (2") pieces all the way up to large (9") statues!

Thank you for five years of wonderful interactions and support! Looking forward to bigger and better pieces and intriguing requests in the future!!

Handcrafting unique and custom ordered miniatures, icons, amulets, altarpieces and votives inspired by the art, artifacts and ritual of life in Ancient Egypt. . .

Welcome to the Shadow of the Sphinx.


I have been deeply fascinated with the mystery and symbolism behind the art and hieroglyphs of ancient Egypt since I was a young boy. The touring treasures of the tomb of Tutankhamen, the mysteries of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids all stirred such great wonder within me.

I found myself, at the age of 9, making renditions out of cardboard and tin foil of the elaborate jewelry of the Pharaohs that I saw in photos and painting images of the gods Thoth and Horus on my feet.

I felt somehow as though they were protecting me.

I secretly (at first) painted hieroglyphs on the walls of my bedroom closet and would often pretend I was living in those ancient times.

Now some thirty years later I have allowed my love and reverence for these things to come to resurface and I am creating this line of polymer and gemstone icons for your own personal altars, Kemetic shrines and/or home decor.

My statues are styled after the traditional votive statues of Ancient Egypt. That is to say, NOT the gilded golden idols of kings and queens but the statues of everyday life. Prayer and offering statues. Home altars and handmade with humble simplicity.

I will continue to increase the line as new items come to completion and I'll share the stories and lore of these ancient symbols as well.

Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas for things you may wish to see featured here.

There's a certain light, a magic, found between the pages of history, lingering in the shadow of the sphinx...


As my shop has grown over the last year I have found that a large percentage of my orders are custom requests from the ancient pantheon. I could not have imagined the wide range of requests that I have been able to create for people to have on their personal altars.

It was also a desire of mine from day one, to have work that was affordable for almost anyone to have. With the demand and increase in production, my prices have had to rise as well. But I want to say that if you have a need for an altar piece and do not think you can afford a custom piece, convo me because the range of pieces my own work is inspired from is vast and varies from highly detailed to very humble and simple forms.

The shop here, as you might expect, only showcases some of the best and most requested work. I can make small, inexpensive pieces to fit almost any budget. :)

Just let me know your situation and limitations and we will go from there!
