Greek Deity Sheet - Apollo
ALL ITEMS IN OUR STORE ARE HANDMADE AND TAKE TIME TO PRODUCE. IT CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS FOR PAGES TO SHIP.
A new way to interact with Pagan Gods. A page for your Book of Shadows dedicated to a specific deity. Each page comes with an attached parchment envelope filled with a torn and charred piece of parchment paper. Write a letter to your god or goddess and place it inside the envelope. You can also add herbs, crystals, or any other magical tool as an offering to your god or goddess. Add your hair or fingernail clippings to the envelope to merge your energy with the deity.
To be true to the ancient culture, I did a lot of research on each deity and I added the most appropriate symbols to their pages. The back of the page has the aged background, but it is blank so you can add even more facts and/or pictures of your deity.
Apollo: God of the sun, light, prosperity, prophecy, archery, music and the arts. He is the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of Artemis. His symbols are the bow and arrow, the lyre and the laurel wreath.
The picture of Apollo comes from Ancient Greek pottery art. Lucania, c. 415 - 400 BCE.
A copy of an Ancient Greek coin dedicated to Apollo has been added to the tip of the envelope like a wax and seal. This coin comes from Thrace, c. 365 - 346 BCE.
A prayer for each deity has been translated into Greek. In English the prayer reads:
Apollo, god of light, purity, and the sun.
Patron to poets, player of the Lyre.
Son of Zeus, twin to Artemis.
Show me what it is to have the power.
This double sided Parchment Paper page has been mounted onto a three hole punched backing. It is ready to be added to your Adjustable Book of Shadows. I invented them because I wanted scrapbook pages free from plastic sheet protectors. The pages are all 8 ½ by 11 inches. The 3 holes have been punched into an extra ½ inch strip on the side of the page. They look like pages of a regular book in a tightly bound scrapbook because you can’t see the bindings at all. They make a wonderful crisp sound as you turn the pages. The pages are printed onto brand new Ivory Parchment Paper but look aged. All mounted page come with frayed edges and are coffee stained. Your Book of Shadows will look like an old family heirloom.
