Details
Votive offerings have been found in their thousands across the ancient world and were left at temples and religious site as offering to the gods.  One presumption is that they were left in the hopes of conjuring divine intervention and ingratiate oneself favour with a particular deity.  It is also thought that they may have been left as thanks after the event, in order to honour the gods whose intervention was gratefully received.   

We have hand-modelled this votive appl taking inspiration from an original artefact.

Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery and giving each piece it's unique character.
