June Altar 2015

LithaAltar

With May nearly over and summer approaching, I decided to re-decorate my altar for Litha. I’ve moved the sun plaque to the centre, symbolising the height of summer, and added artificial roses, a summer bloom. I’ve also added two figures that I feel represent the Sage – Fukurokuju and a wizard-like figure reading a book – as June is also the month for celebrating Father’s Day. Finally, there’s two traditional Japanese ornaments depicting goldfish and a melon slice, both of which are summer symbols in Japan.
