A day late. My apologies.
July 13th is the start of what were the Ludi Apollinares (Apollonian Games) in Ancient Rome.
This is the prize. This can either be worn as a necklace or wrapped around the wrist; I’ve put one of my silver clasps on it. The glass beads I’ve unfortunately lost note on of who made them, but I can say that I bought them directly from the artist who made them. There are 11 herkimer diamonds. The rest is quartz or garnet on hand-knotted silk. The value of this necklace is somewhere around $200; I’ve not done the exact math.
So how can you win it?
These are the rules…
1. To enter, you must create an image, prayer, or poem in honor of Apollon. You must be willing to release the rights into the Creative Commons, and I will feature it on this blog in the Virtual Apollonian Prayer Book category.
2. Send your entry to NotAWiccan (at) gmail (dot) com between May 26th and July 12th.
3. The winner will be chosen by Apollon via a name pull from a bowl on His shrine in my home on July 13th. Sometime during the 13th I will announce the winner.
4. I will ship internationally, but if the shipping ends up being more than $15 I ask that you’re willing to pay the difference.
I look forward to seeing your entries!
