Purchasing Pagan Items

I am considering how to go about purchasing statues/figures. I know where I could buy Roman figurines, or Greek, or Celtic or Norse. But not for Slavic deities or spirits. I’m leery of just checking out random Etsy’s, or eBay’s, or online websites without some reference that it is a real site and not a scam. And just taking a statue of some other deity and renaming it does not sit with me. They are different, after all.

So if anyone has ideas on reliable, valid websites that have anything relating to Slavic symbols or figures…I would very much appreciate links or names. (I am still looking, just have hit a wall)āˆ—

  1. Sometimes you can find the ancient depictions that are in museums on the internet. In addition, there may be some modern Russian artists (I have seen a lovely rendition of a Russalka) who have made new pictorials. I am not sure about statuary; however, I am fairly sure you could find some really nice icons,

  2. Dmitry Kushnir has an Etsy shop, where he sells small deity figurines for about $10 each. That’s where I got the statues I currently use. (You can also purchase a full altar setup from him.) He’s super racist, though, so you may have ethical qualms about purchasing from him.

    There’s also a website (epika dot org) that sells Slavic deity statues, although I haven’t purchased from them and can’t attest to the quality of their products (or to whether it’s a scam).

    1. Yeah, he’s got affordable stuff. But I’ve had a run in with him online where he called me a “German bitch”, and told me I was a dishonor to my Slavic ancestors….so no way I’m going to buy from him. šŸ™‚

      I’ll check out epika though, see what I can find on them.

      1. That’s sickening. I’m so sorry. I bought my idols from him right when I started to get into Slavic mythology, before I had the lay of the land. The more I’ve learned about him, the more I’ve come to regret ever giving him money.

        1. I totally understand. If it weren’t for the fact I ran into him right as I was discovering Slavic paganism (while still broke college kid), I would have bought his stuff too. It’s affordable after all.

          But we all love and learn.
