Product Description

The Aphrodite Shrine

Shrines ~ tiny altars built to clear energy and hold sacred space ~ have been used for centuries to bless the heart of our homes.  Completely handmade from solid sterling silver and 18k gold, this shrine folds up into a portable, hinged box that can bring the spirit of home with you whenever you go.  Measuring 2" x 3" tall, it is filled with hundreds of details and vivid symbolism, including Aphrodite handcarved from a recycled piano key.

On the front, Aphrodite welcomes the viewer into her domain of love and beauty.  She holds a bouquet of lilies to symbolize fertility, as smoke issues from a bowl of sage. She wears the golden girdle that Hephaestus created for her, carved with a crescent moon.  Inside the shrine, Aphrodite is born from the foam of the sea.  She sits with her white arms clasped about her legs, gazing up into the sky lit by a golden star: the planet Venus.  On the back, an orchard of pomegranate trees grow, lit by the amber moon.




Warranty Information

One of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets is written around the entire shrine, translated and written in the beautiful Elvish language of J. R. R. Tolkien:

Love is not love which alters when alteration finds,
nor bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
that looks on tempests and is not shaken.
