As I do, my close friend George Harrison always did a morning ceremony at a special place in his home. He burned incense while prayerfully meditating upon certain deities at an altar that I made for him (p.54, Sacred Art Sacred Earth). He wanted a smaller, traveling shrine to use while he was away from home and I made a 4” high silver & gold box inside of which was a carved Hindu deity, Ganesha (p. 3, Sacred Art Sacred Earth). It was a wonderful idea and I’ve been creating shrines ever since. The White Buffalo Woman/Cernunnos is my personal traveling shrine. The prices range from $4500 to $30,000.
“When I met Heyoka Merrifield in 1975, I was taken by his art and jewelry. The pieces he has made for me have become part of my life and travel with me wherever I go, especially the miniature shrine to Lord Ganesha. Not a gem nor precious metal passes through Heyoka’s hands that is not instilled with a spirit of its own in the process of being transformed into a work of art and beauty.” George Harrison: Author of My Sweet Lord, Here Comes The Sun and other musical treasures.
