Household Altar

I'm into religion, suddenly. I've got so fed up with widely published trash and propaganda about Muslims that I've decided to fight back.
Muslims do not allow images of God, or idolatry in any form (except for the Ka'aba).
Certain Christians like to have a series of images of their gods and goddesses around the house, just like the Romans used to do.
Jesus takes the place of Apollo, and the Virgin Mary takes over from whatever ancient female god you ever thought of (Astarte, Aphrodite, Venus, etc).

Here at the art gallery, we've got altars for Dias del los Muertos, Days of the Dead. I put up one in a display cabinet, of woven spheres made from paper, (based on the Thai/Malay takraw rattan ball), and fabbed a sort of geodesic igloo on a paper snowflake, in memory of the good old days in "arctic" Minnesota.
