[Home]Shrine Of Asheth

Diana Wynne Jones Wiki Home | RecentChanges | Preferences

The Shrine of Asheth is part of the Temple of Asheth in Series Ten of the Related Worlds. Only initiates of Asheth may enter it, and the entrances are hung with yellow curtains to shield it from a casual glance.

The major feature of the Shrine is a statue of Asheth in her Divine Aspect. She has four arms, wears a high crown, and is bedecked with jewelry. The statue is gold (actually gold-coated wood, and there's none at the back where nobody can see it anyway), and there are precious gems in the crown, in addition to a large ruby embedded in each of Her four palms. The statue is placed so that it is lit to great effect by the sunlight streaming in from the roof, and wreathed with incense from burners at its feet.
