Again with the altars!

I finally finished the backdrop for my "senut shrine." (I drew the figures by hand with pencil and ink, scanned them, colored them and scaled them down on the computer via GIMP (allowances I made for my aging eyes :)) and had them printed on photo stock online at Deviant Art (because my actual printer isn't always reliable). It is, at present, focused on Hathor and Bast and has a handful of useful things on it, the rest are in a basket underneath.

Here's a front view:

And because the backdrop is also on the sides of the shrine box, here is a left-hand view:

and here is a right-hand view:

It has, I hope, a kind of a simple and straightforward look to it; if I sit on the floor in front of it, it is at eye level. When not in use it is curtained off (you can see a bit of the cloth in some of the pictures). Also, there are (in addition to the two statues) forty-four different gods pictured on the backdrop!

Thank you for sharing this, it's very beautiful! Also I think I recognize one of the plates! It looks like one I've seen in an etsy store - the same place I got one of my scarab plates (:

yeah, I think I might get one for myself eventually. I'm fairly obsessed with lotus art XD
