Looking for Statue of Apollo
by Jerry (thorin2003)

Greetings! Does anyone have any advice on where I might be able to find a nice (but affordable) statue/sculpture/figure of Apollo? I would really love to find one in person (I live in North Carolina, so if anyone happens to know of any stores in the area to look at, that would be great!), but online stores would be fine as well if I could find the right statue. Thank you so much for any advice!

Greetings:) I know a lot of people will probably give you a ton of wonderful sites, but honestly, I've found Ebay to be the cheapest. I pulled this from there for you:)

Jeez, that's awful. I'm sorry. I've heard some eBay/Craigslist horror stories over the years, which always makes me a wary online buyer. Another reason why I lean towards local stores is that I'd love to just have that physical connection with a sacred object like a statue.

Unfortunatly, the only Apollo statue that Sacred Source ever seems to have is that really bad copy of the Apollo Belvedere. (http://www.sacredsource.com/prodinfo.asp?number=APL) Personally, I think it's one of the ugliest things I've ever seen.

Ugh.. that's one of the main problems facing Paganism today I think... there's no good statues of the gods, they always look deformed or horribly cheap.

If you go here: http://www.winterscapes.com/kharis/links.htm and look under Ritual Supplies, I have a bunch of links to some of my favorite online sources for statues.
