This was my shrine dedicated to slaughterhouse Pigs. Some kids thought it looked demonic, but the pig has wings....so I dunno, anyone can interpret it they way they want. It had a real atmosphere, thats all I know.
I turned the pedestal upside down and filled it with newspaper so that I could sit a flashlight in it. I then covered the top with plexiglass so that the flashlight could shine through to illuminate the pig from beneath. I built the shrine out of dollar store candles: lots of melting and hot glue!
I used colored glass to make the pig! no paint! :)
