Cas sneaking down and taking a vessel during the renaissance and becoming close to an art student. The art student learns of Cas’ true celestial nature and paints Cas’ image on the walls of a small, quiet church somewhere.
The church becomes one of Cas’ favorite places on earth which he would often visit seeking solace when he still had full use of his wings. He’d sit there silently, allowing the peace of the church to envelop him.
There are whispers about how this tiny, unassuming church is truly blessed because the centuries-old artwork in the church still remains perfectly preserved, untouched by grime and the passing of time, the colors beautiful and bright.
The locals also speak of a mysterious figure who visits the church and sits in the pews, gazing upwards, a soft smile gracing their lips as they look at the brilliant angel with outstretched wings painted above the altar.
Altars for Artemis and my spirit and ancestor work; still need to do some futzing to make them pretty and install some shelves for the latter altar, but I think they’re coming along!
Some random info:
- The herbal offering for Artemis is called “Maiden Huntress” and is blended by a friend here in Virginia, and is for sale at our shop. - The bones were all ethically sourced or gifted. Those displayed on the altar were blessed under yesterday’s solar eclipse. - The small cauldron is pottery from Oaxaca, found in an antique store. - The wing on the ancestral altar was purchased from a Native American craftsman, and is NOT used for smudging or any other practice from a closed religion. It’s used for representing the element of Air during spirit work. - If anyone has questions about any of the items, I’m happy to answer. I scrounged most of it, or received things as gifts.
