Statue whoring fun!

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...)

Next up: http://egyptian.souvenirs.s5.com/photo4.html
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. :)

it's slap-happy Hethert icon whoring day here in sunny and sandy Rhode Island...

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?

Part of my collection

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.^_^

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.
