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:)http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37.l1313&satitle=Apollo+statue&category0=
Thank you so much! I saw one on there that is perking my interest. :-)
You're very welcome:)
i'd stick with sacred source or local stores. i ordered a beautiful demeter statue from ebay in june, from greece. it's still not here.:(khairetesuz
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.
that is startling awful!:Okhairetesuz
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.
I'm a sculptor in wood and a few other materials. gmail me if you like and we can discuss what you have in mind and your budget.
I'll get some ideas together and touch base with you. Thanks so much! :-)
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.
Thank you so much! You have quite a few helpful links on there.
