The Changing Faces of the Temple
From Olivia Robertson, via Minette Quick
March 13, 2011

Star Chapel

"This chapel of the Non-Zodiac Stars is centre of our Temple Labyrinth.
The main altar of the Goddess Ishtar of the 8-pointed star, Lady of 15
shows a "Mirror of Hathor," which reflects the soul's dreams.
Ishtar is painted on the surface.
She descended the Planes to rescue her Lover, Tammuz
Shepherd of the Starry Flocks.
The Goddess Tiamat of space is painted
with outspread wings on the altar frontal.
(Paintings by OR) "

Hathor's Mirror - Members' Chapel

"Olivia speaks at length about her mystical experiences looking through mirrors so she suggested I also take a photograph of Hathor's Mirror in the Members' Chapel which she recently repainted. (These were taken on Wed. 9th March 2011)"

Masks of the God Apollo in Toga & the Veiled God Dionysos
Apollo & Dionysos

"The primary dichotomy between TRUTH & LOVE
was represented in Greek philosophy by these Deities.
At one time they shared their ceremonies at The Parthenon to bring balance.
Then Dionysos burnt down the Temple!
Apollo and the 9 Muses preside over Mount Parnassos & Dionysos in wild woodland.
The Academic world and the Nature votaries still require Harmony."

Minette adds: "I'm sure you all loved Gangur's new Shrine - it now has a delightful green canopy over it, so I had to send an updated photograph of it for you!" (taken 3/12/11)
