Delia/Thargelia contest

So even though I have a terrible track record so far of folks participating in contests, I thought maybe that was because I haven’t created the prize way before hand for people to see and feel driven by the want. So this time I have. This was made so that it could be worn around the neck (hence the reason the top coil is shaped as it is, or set on an altar. This is Apollon as a fiery serpent. It is made with red and white sculpy (which is being coated with a hardener for polymer jewelery), has turquois eyes, and carnelian chips set down its back. He is wrapped around a very nice luminous piece of carnelian. If he was being sold he would be 30 dollars.

Contest rules: only one submission per person, it has to your original work, submission needs to be of the poetic type as Apollon was honored at his birthday with songs and poems.

Please note that this contest is international and open to anyone so please do feel free to share about it!

Deadline is May 11th for submissions.

Submissions should be sent to


100 followers has been reached…statue contest

So as promised, with the reaching of 100 blog followers (actually 101) today, this means that this weekend I will be working on a statue as I had promised. Said statue will go to the winner of contest….I think an essay contest between two different topics, so to be inclusive of people who are new to worshiping Apollon “What Apollon means in my life” OR “Why I am interested in the worship of Apollon.”

The contest is only open for followers of the blog to submit, and entries will be put up online. You have three weeks from tomorrow to get your entries in and then there will be a vote and winner will have Apollon shipped to him/her free of charge.

I am so pleased that, although this blog touches on other gods, Apollon has found a way into so many lives by the activity of this blog!
