Altar Libations, Icons & Tiles

Refine Search

Altar tiles can be used as focal points on your altar, for placing other items around, or for bringing attention to certain areas pertaining to a ritual. They are usually fairly small, with larger ones being used as patens and candle plates or chalice coasters. As candle plates, they protect the altar surface from scorching. As coasters, they protect the cloth or altar from moisture rings. As patens, they can be used to rest ritual objects on, or to offer puja or libations, and to cover an open chalice or cup.

Icons come in many forms, such as symbolic objects like an ankh or a cross, triquetra or triskele; photographs, paintings, or sketches of gods and goddesses or saints; and totem fetishes like feathers, skulls, and etched stones.

When an icon has been further blessed and embedded with talismanic or amulet apotropaic qualities, it becomes a reliquary. A buddhist stupa is a reliquary that holds a secret buddha statue inside. A buddhist prayer wheel is a reliquary that holds a sacred prayer inside, that activates when the wheel is spun. Christian reliquaries include treasure boxes with the bones of saints. Fetishes can be reliquaries if they have been blessed in ceremony to attract the spirit of the god to inhabit them. A framed photograph that has items embedded in the frame or hidden behind the photograph, that intentionally focus the spirit of the divine entity in the photograph so that the photograph is said to be inhabited by that spirit are reliquaries.

Bowls and patens on an altar hold elements that are used in ritual, like food for libations, incense, herbs and liquids. They can be made out of metal, clay, glass or wood and have designs specific to the spiritual ritual they serve.  Cups, tankards, and goblets also come under this heading in this category, as well as spoons for ladling powders and pastes, and small oil or butter lamps. 

You will find libation cups, goblets, tankards, and shot glasses made by Alchemy of England in this section,
