When we loose faith in our leaders we look for the right path within. At least that is what I do.
Being born as a lutheran I left my church in protest before the millenium due to the disgrace & discrimination of Biskop Bertil Gärtner. Which does not mean I have lost my spirituality or faith. As Eva Dahgren & psykopomp Hermes sang : Jag är gud - I am god
On the table in front of the altar in black are my candle holders & mini statuetts I call Artefact because the are inspired by the #artefact found at my all time favorite museum Glyptoteket in Copenhagen. I lived 1 hour drive away over #öresundsbron the bridge connecting Sweden to Denmark in Lund, Skåne for 3 years.
My Artefacts are 3 candle holders & 2 mini statuetts
