What I consider the other side if the Sibyl card, the Cassandra card is when due to your own actions the blessings of the gods turn against you. To be cast out, to be unheard, and ultimately be consumed and lead to your own destruction.
Please consider being a sponsor for the Oracle of the Serpent 🙂
Sharing the more recent cards. Please see previous blog post to see how you can get in on investing in direct sponsorship of the Oracle of the Serpent 🙂
With the failing of the kick starter as an all or nothing thing, I decided to write here a proposition for those who genuinely want to support getting this done on time. Honestly I gave plenty of time for painting through the summer. What I need is at minimum to be able to purchase canvas and paint (several colors I am now dangerously low on).
So how do you do it? Paypal me at firstname.lastname@example.org and email me at the same address regarding you donation.
Aside from decks which will be mailed after the deck is completed, all other rewards will be mailed within 2 weeks of receiving donation (sometimes less time depending on what all you are getting). All rewards for receiving cards I will keep track of and you will be emailed when the decks are ready to mail.
$10- there is no reward other thank you for helping me buy 1 canvas 🙂
$25- you get a print of any of the currently completed cards.
$40- reserve a signed copy of the deck
$60- reserve a deck and get a print
$80- all of the above+photo pendant necklace.
$125- upgrade to gold trimmed (possibly limited edition gilded) deck
$150- upgrade deck plus upgrade pendant to silver medallion.
$250-all upgrades plus upgrade your print to an original painting out of what is available (you can wait to decide until they are all painted, but keep in mind if there is one you *really* like it is first come first served on claiming. I will list all those unclaimed when the cards are done)
Thank you everyone for you support and those who pledged in the kickstarter that sadly never jumped off the ground. If supporters don’t mind doing this direct sponsorship I think you will ultimately find it satisfactory. You will of course gave my sincerest thanks
Please stay in tune via Facebook page Oracle of the Serpent to keep the easiest updated on the progress of the cards! I will if course keep posting cards here as well.
For some time I have been slowly working my Apollo Oracle cards, doing one card at a time through my own efforts and from individual card sponsors. Since I would love to have the deck ready for release by October I decided to put up a kickstart. It is an all or nothing Kick start. If it fails it will exponentially affect the release date by likely a couple years. Sponsorship allows me to devote more time for creating.
The unique thing about this deck is that it us a combination of inferring representations via cult names and referring to myths to unpack the meanings of the cards. Even this is valuable as there us no one absolute way to read these. I will be providing a booklet with suggested interpretations. It heavily relies on the reader. As this deck deals most directly with Apollon and his relationship with other gods this deck will likely be useful for those who perform divination in service to him.
Doing as little as pledging the reduced cost of a deck at 40.00 (will likely be a bit higher when sold afterward) will do so much to help this get going.
There are of course many tiers with goodies for pledging.
Something I am currently working. Have been for a while but doing so in a more official basis for anyone who may be interested.
Lykeias Botanica (my shop) will begin a service called Icons for Under privileged worshipers Charity. I will put my own money into it, 10% of my profits and be open to donations.
This charity is designed to accumulate funding to provide (1) 8-10 inch statue of deity of their choice plus shipping. Once appropriate funding and shipping has been achieved the person at the top of the wait list will receive an email confirming their selection and to inquire what icon they would like made.
With so many lacking the means for religious supply, as an iconographer I wanted to put something within reach of those who have little. But as I cannot fund it by myself this also depends on generous contributions for the lengthy and expensive process if making terracotta icons.
Much of time will be donated, therefore the mark to raise per statue is going to be about 50.00 plus shipping vosts..between 20.00-30.00 domestic, more for international. It will just depend on whose next on the list.
If you would like to donate send money via PayPal to email@example.com
Every 2 weeks I will post an update where donations are sitting.
If you would like to be put on the waitlist please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with following questions answered:
Why would you like to be on the list?
Valid contact info?
It is that easy. This is 100% dependant on honesty of applicants and generosity of coworshipers.
$35 each plus $10 domestic shipping, $15 international shipping
