Inspiring space dedicated to Hecate, Cernunnos, Dionysos

I am very happy to be posting this sacred space. It is, in fact, the space that inspired me to create this blog. I loved the composition, color palette, and symbolism, as well as the unique way that the practitioner BlueDruid combined shrines to different deities and and a Druidic altar.

You can find the article describing the most recent version of the space on BlueDruid's blog, Of Oak and Ivy. He desribes it as thus:

Heres a close up of just the main main work area minus the Dionysos shrine. The Hekate and Cernunnos shrines are placed as they are on purpose. Cernunnos rests on the main Druidic altar because he is “of the land” and my personal guide to all things Druidic. It some how feels right that he be so intimately connected to the Druid altar, to actually rest upon it. Hekate’s shrine rests above it due to her also having a strong presence in my personal Druidic work, and her being “The Far Removed One”. The Druidic altar itself consists of a few different parts. To the left is my area for the 4 elements. There’s a bowl of earth, a fire pot, an insence burner, and bowl of water. In the center is the “hearth fire”, a triple wicked soy candle that I made with various essential oils pertinent to my work included. In front of the Cernunnos shrine is a leaf shaped dish for offerings to the land spirits and my Druid Plant Oracle Cards which I use to to communicate with him primarily.
There are other great pictures at the end of the link, so make sure you check it out.
