Meteora, in central Greece, has long been known as a place of holy worship. The area consists of a number of monasteries built atop the high mountain boulders. Hence, our Meteora Altar is suitably named and can be used as a vessel for worship, prayer, manifestation and blessings.

Hand carved from non combustible material, the altars and arches are lightweight and suitable for plasterboard walls.
Finished in natural polished lime plaster, and beeswax sealant.
Our Panagia is depicted with gold metal foil highlights. The arch is hand painted internally with gold stars.
The niche can be wall mounted, or sit on a shelf, or wherever you see fit. It comes with a two-part wall mounting hook designed to hold up to 10kg. One part of the hook is attached to the back of the altar, the other you screw to your wall.
Each piece is rendered in a natural lime finish, finished with natural sealer and buffed with beeswax for water resistance.
Handle with clean, dry hands at all times.
Take care when mounting as corners are delicate.
Keep clean by wiping with a clean damp cloth.
Staining can be removed with a small amount of gumption, or lightly buff with 180 grit sand paper for more stubborn stains.
As it is a natural finish, imperfections are part of the finish. No two Altars are finished the same.
Contact us for any further cleaning questions.
*Please note, burning a candle is at your own risk. All finishes are nonflammable. But care should be taken as direct flame contact will stain Lime plaster.
The wall niche will warm up with a candle inside so care should be taken. if you choose to use a candle do not exceed one third of the height of the internal niche. We highly recommend a good quality LED Candle. Or glass votive candles.
Avoid the use of scented and paraffin candles as they will deposit brown fragrance stain and paraffin black soot.
Turnaround time for orders is 3 weeks.
