>> Warning: long post! <<
Thank the gods, I've been creating more babies than I can post about! ;) I have friends/costumers who are constantly challenging me to bring new deities to life. While I love recreating the "old" ones with all the care they need, it's simply a pleasure to start a new Goddess or God. I have the feeling that another piece falls in place in this huge spiritual puzzle every time a new deity is born.
Sooo... Last year I had the chance to add some new girls and boys to my collection.
A couple that was deliciously good to play with, were the Wonder Goddess and the Super God - you know who they are in fact! ;) They're the only ones I couldn't list at my Etsy shop for obvious reasons, but are already at their new homes:
Among the new Goddesses, I had Epona, with Her horse with a loosen thread mane, and two little birds on the arms, filled with rosemary. She looks cute! :)
Nike came with golden wings and a laurel wreath proclaiming the victory for those in need, filled with dried laurel leaves:
I loved adding all the four hard tasks to the sweet Psyche (Lucas was indignant with her mother-in-law, by the way, lol!), and loving butterflies, I loved embroidering Her main symbol, with a Phi in disguise on her antennas. I filled Her with jasmine:
I had my first Voodoo Goddess ordered! As a tradition that is still a mystery to me, it was wonderful to research and create Erzulie Freda (filled with red roses), what a powerful, but hard-to-deal-with deity!
Then came the Gods...
Ares, full of anger, craving for blood, and filled with a pinch of black pepper:
Apollo... This was another sweet one to create. Music and art are some of my favorites:
Zeus, with his lightning and filled with sage, was hard to say goodbye, my little witch loved Him (I'll need to make him one soon):
The adorable Eros with His Psyche landing on his arm, filled with red roses and drieed apple:
On Poor Hephaestus (I always felt so sorry for his sad fate!) I put a little piece of real chain over his forge, and a pinch of calendula in the filling:
So far, that's what I have new at my Etsy. Hoping to create a new whole set of deities with all the suggestions you all gave me at the last giveaway! ;)
Oh and I'm finishing Nut, the giveaway winner's choice! By tomorrow afternoon I might have Her posted, She's getting sweet...
Thank you all who had the patience of scrolling down all this long post, and wishing you a great week!
