Antique lime stone house altar, India
Somewhere else on this site you'll find a DIY house chapel (or maybe not if it has been sold) . Because you might have thought that we 'Good Christians' are the only ones setting up a direct line of communication to God, but that is not the case. Apparently direct lines to heaven are from all times and from all religions.
' Cause we might have had our little house chapels, in India they had these beautiful little altars in their home. When building a house the just chipped a bit further in the walls and whoops-daisy there it was, your very own home altar. Easy does it, every day a little candle in it, some incense in front. Easy doet is.
Luckily this altar was spared when the house was demolished. Someone took the trouble to cut it from the wall and after numerous and long travels, it ended up in my shop. Where it stands now, waiting for you.
Antique or at least very old stone home altar, from India.
