These pewter statues are starting to grow on me. I saw this lovely Bast statue and thought, "Hey, that's really very beautiful." :)

Thinking about it.. thinking about it...

People never cease to amuse me. Check this collection of pewter statues out (and specifically, the one labeled "Ra.")

Statue whoring fun! Oct. 14th, 2004 @ 12:46 am
To begin tonight, we have this rather unusual collection of statues.
Now granted, they have everyone and their mother with a crook and flail, which you could read a lot into but I suspect it's just because they used the same mold for all the bodies and just changed heads. ;) Plus side: it's not Summit Collection! And they have Nebt-het finally facing forward and in real clothes! (Among other things... I actually quite like the Nebt-het statue, perhaps in gold...)

I think this would be very nice to put on an Akhu shrine. I may get me one of these someday.

Good night, my hoes. :)

Oh money where art thou? If I had more of you around, I'd buy this statue: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=37905&item=3747383906&rd=1

Obviously, it's not traditional style but I still love it.



Lovely, and the description made me titter. ;)


Anyone else see anything good lately?

I thought this was pretty interesting. It says it's King Tut (um... no), but to me looks a lot more like Amun. Either way, it's a nice statue. If it is Amun, it's the first statue I've ever seen of Him seated.

I wanted to post pics of all my collection, and some stuff about how or why I got them all, but I don't have a functional digital camera and my big idea of using the scanner to "scan" the room just didn't come through as I'd hoped. So instead, I have a few pics I found from the companies who made some of the statues I have, and some scans of others which were small enough to fit on the scanner bed.^_^

Prattling about my collection behind cut.Collapse )

Hi. My name is Weben Banu, and I am a statue whore.

It started out with just one or two working statues for my altar... but I just couldn't decide which of the available statues I wanted. Even when I did decide, I almost always found another one which was really wonderful in its own way... I ended up buying statue after statue after statue; the more ntjrw I encountered, the more statues I felt the need to buy. The more statues I bought, the better I felt.^_^ But I always want more.

It didn't help when I read how the ancient Egyptians used to commission statues and paintings of the ntjrw as offerings, giving Them honor and power and strengthening Their presence by multiplying Their images. I started rationalizing my obsession with the logic that my purchases of ntjrw icons encouraged the icon dealers to produce more... thereby multiplying Their images in the modern world.

Then I met an artist friend who made custom-designed icons of the ntjrw for the Kemetic community, and she inspired me to start repainting my own icons- that's how the icon service started for her. I even went so far as to start buying polymer clay, but so far I haven't made anything bigger than amulets. I may one day discover a talent for building my own icons, Ntjr help me.

For now I collect icons of any ntjr(t) Who spends any significant amount of time with me, whenever I see them. I like traditional style icons, but I have a few images which are in a more modern style- necklace pendents, RPG figurines, and the like.

I have no intention of stopping.^_^ I'm really glad to find a community devoted to those of us who are nuts over icons- I'm trying to figure out how to get images of some of my collection, so I can post pics and stories about them here.
