"Those pillars are breath taking! Care to share how you guys made them? I have never seen ones so big and professional looking!" 

Why, thank you! I would be happy to share. The Alpha Omega is quite proud of Isis-Hathor's Pillars.

Isis-Hathor Mother Temple (nicknamed "Camelot" by Alpha Omega's College of the Adepti) is an 838 square foot, free-standing Golden Dawn temple. She has a 12 foot high ceiling, so she has plenty of room for proper pillars. Isis-Hathor's pillars are 1 foot in diameter by 8 feet high plus the capitals.

Pillar Construction

The Beginning: Isis-Hathor Temple Construction
Left: Pastos of the Vault of the Adepti
Right: Leslie Griffin (VH Soror DIA) Building Isis-Hathor's Pillars

We took four, 4 foot by 12 inch concrete forms, glued an 18 inch cardboard section 9 inches into the lower section to give the joint more stabliity, then glued the two sections together as shown above.

We then took Moina Mathers' original pillar drawings from Alpha Omega archives. GH Frater Sincerus Renatus, who is quite a talented artist, retouched Moina's drawings, then converted them to scaleable Photoshop files. We later adjusted the files to the correct size to fit Isis-Hathor's pillars, then printed Moina's original drawings out at a professional shop on car-wrap material, then carefully applied the decals.

The result is a set of Moina Mathers' original Alpha Omega pillars in a technologically modern rendition that Moina herself would have been quite proud of!

By the way, the Vault of the Adepti turned out even more stunning!

With love from Isis-Hathor,

Leslie and David Griffin

  4. What a beautiful temple! I have seen pics of the vault and its also very beautiful.
    They are selling the ready made clothes to wrap the pillars (clothes with drawings) and also everything else you need to build your Golden Dawn temple at http://www.ritual-magic.org/order-elemental-tools.html

    Hope this helps

  6. Gracias por mostrarnos tan hermoso Templo y por compartirnos como hacer nuestros propios pilares. Cabe hacer mención de que en nuestro caso, nos hemos inspirado también en los pilares del G.H. Frater S.R. para la elaboración de los nuestros.

    Reciban una calurosa felicitación por tan loable esfuerzo en apoyo de toda la comunidad de la Aurora Dorada.

    Fraternalmente en L.V.X.

  7. I've actually hand painted these pillars. It was not a simple undertaking.
