Roman House Altar - Chalk

This replica of a Roman house altar of patinated Alabaster plaster is a great piece of art for anybody who loves Roman antiquity. In the original Roman house, the altar was framed by Laren, the god?s of the family. They were offered incense to honour the genius of Juno and other deities so that they in turn protect the family.

The most important rites at the House were carried out in honour of Vesta, the goddess of the domestic hearth. The Romans were convinced that their house was protected by a God in the form of a snake and therefore every day they also brought a small sacrifice to the goddess in the form of food or wine.

The altar is a replica from a find from Spain. There are still Roman letters and inscriptions to be seen on it.
