Tin Goddesses?

OK...here's a new project I'm working on for my shop. I looked online & in books for different goddess shapes & sketched some out & made patterns. I've had pals saving me their Altoid tins instead of tossing them. I want to make little goddesses to go in their tin shrines. I'm just not sure what to call them! Anyway, it was a really interesting thing to study...these ancient forms. There is even an ancient pecked owl goddess in France! So I included a silhouette of it. Maybe you can pick it out in the picture. I also made some forms/patterns of my own! I have some molded, painted faces, felt, beads, charms, etc. for each of these beauties & their shrines. Should be fun...any help with a name would be appreciated! ;)

CC - this looks like fun. Goddess Shrines or Alters are always good things. I did one for Our Lady of Guatalope, I used diamond glaze for the outside to seal it. It was fun and meditative at the same time. I hope you'll show us one when it's done. Love your work. Heidibeads

Spirits of the Tins! I'll have to check back and see more of these. I bought some Altoids just to get the tins but boy, are they strong! Good thing it's the tin I wanted.
