Wiccan Lord and Lady Statues, Altar & Pentacle

I recently bought these two statues of the Wiccan Deities so I decided to share an altar I crafted for them: :smiley:

They are made by Dryad Design (I found them here: Goddess Statue & God Statue) and they came with a beautiful description of all the things engraved in the statues, so I decided to make a video sharing what they say:

Wiccan Deities Statues & Altar

The Forest God sits, noble and strong, upon his dais. Within the crown of his antlered brow burns the spiritual fire of transformation, initiation and creative force. Ram headed snakes interlace themselves within the pentacle below him. The Lord’s throne is supported on his right by the bull- representative of power, strength and virility. On his left is the mythic stag- an emblem of wildness, sovereignty, and the bountiful forest. His aspect as “Lord of the Dance” is displayed on the back. The dance was performed to bring fertility to the crops and to his people.”

The Lunar Goddess sits on her throne, graced with the phases of the moon. She is crowned with the horned crescent. In her lap she cradles a scrying bowl representing receptivity, intuition and the magical womb of transformation. On her right side a rabbit looks on, her emblem of life, fertility, and beginnings. On her left the crow cries out as her messenger, symbolic of the waning years of life and the ultimate passing from this life into the next. The back of her throne depicts the Goddess in her three aspects as Maid, Mother, and Crone.”

God and Goddess Candles Colors

The Goddess candle is traditionally silver, white or green. The God candle can be red, yellow or gold. :candle:

Pentacle

The pentacle has many different interpretations depending on who you ask. For me, it’s a symbol of nature (the 4 elements + Spirit) and a symbol of elemental protection. I designed this pentacle, then printed it, cut it out and placed it on my altar.

In the video I also mention the book The Spiral Dance which I recommend if you want to learn more about the “Reclaiming” tradition. The author of the book, Starhawk, writes:

“To communicate with the Goddess/God Within, we resort to symbols, to art, poetry, music, myth, and the actions of ritual that translate abstract concepts into the language of the unconscious.”

In my interpretation, the simple act of creating an altar is a way to connect with the deities. Drawing, writing, singing are all valid forms of worship. Finding beauty in Nature or creating it, inspired by the Wiccan deities, too.

Thanks, @Trey!!

That one is beautiful too! I love that big cauldron of inspiration and flowing spirit! (Awen) .

And the pig! Quite a unique symbol of an animal considered sacred and blessed in the past (sacred to Cerridwen, Demeter, Ceres) and now a symbol of the dirty and unholy. How things have changed!

I think it’s a lovely statue and you should get it :+1:
