Arch Mini Wall Altar - Morrocco
The wall altars have been thoughtfully designed with the intention of creating a niche to showcase your favourite pieces & wares, adding interest to any wall or shelf that they grace.
The arch altar is available in two sizes, this one being the mini is slightly smaller than the standard (original) wall altars, making it a perfect piece to arrange with the larger altars, or for a smaller nook. This listing is for the altar in a Dusty peach/blush tone, a neutral pink to being a soft hint of colour. It measures approximately 22cm tall x 17cm wide x 8.5cm thick. The internal niche measures approximately 15cm high x 9.5cm wide x 8cm deep. The other altars can be made to order in this colour way too, simply use the contact page for a custom order.
The altars can either 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 the weight of the item, plus the weight of a small/light item placed inside the niche. One part of the hook is attached to the back of the altar, the other piece will come with your item for you to attach/screw into to the wall where you decide to hang it.
Each piece is hand carved initially by an experienced masonry artist, and then completed myself with rendering in an intentionally rustic finish with a natural & non-toxic material. The same goes with the paint used. This has then been finished with a specialised sealant to protect the render. Your altar should still be treated with care, kept out of the weather and can be dusted and cleaned occasionally with a mild cloth.
Please note the render & sealant used on the altars is not flammable, but direct contact with a flame is not recommended. The altar will warm up if a candle is burning inside the niche for some time, so please be mindful of this. A candle with a maximum height of half the height of the arch niche is recommended. Burning for an extended/long period is not recommended. Use of candles/flames in/near the niche is at the customers own risk. Please get in touch via the contact page if you have any questions.
