Snake Goddess Altar

Snake Goddess Altar

 

Cowrie shells, vintage gold smalti, transparenti, glass tile, beads, metal Snake Goddess figure (from a keychain, I think.)

A small altar honoring the Minoan Snake Goddess, a favorite image of mine. The altar itself was covered with tinted thinset, and I used largely transparent glass, allowing the tinted shades to come through the tesserae.
