Roman House Altar – Stone Coloured
This replica of a Roman house altar of patinated Alabaster plaster in stone colour is a real ornament for your own home or for the class room. In Roman houses, the altar was usually framed by Laren, the gods of the family who were honoured with incense.
The most important rites at the House was 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 they daily offered a sacrifice in the form of food or wine.
