The Triple Goddess Backflow Incense Burner is a beautifully detailed incense burner for your home, office or altar. In common Neopagans usage the three female figures are frequently described as the Triple Goddess. The three stages of the female coincide with the three stages of the moon; waxing, full and waning. The Triple Moon is also seen as the triple goddess. The contemporary notion of the Mother Maiden Crone was popularized by folklorist Robert Graves, in his book The White Goddess. This piece is hand cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin. Backflow Incense burners are designed to hold the incense at their peak. When the cone releases smoke it kind of billows and hovers along the burner channels. The three women are holding a large goblet which holds the incense. It is hand painted with a black, grey color with green ivy, colored flowers and brown branches. The base is decorated with triple moons, two crescent moons and the full. Comes with 3 backflow incense and an EVA mat.
