Handcrafted Deluxe Indoor/Outdoor Shrine
This deluxe handcrafted deluxe poly wood outdoor shrine is a perfect inspirational piece for your garden, prayer path, and porch. Many of our customers use this to add a prayer area to their garden or create a small private grotto.
These shrines are made of HDPE, the same kind of poly wood that outdoor decking and furniture is made of. It is made of recycled plastics and can be recycled again if the need ever arises. The material is waterproof, colorfast, bug proof, durable, wonât rot, resistant to cracking and splitting, and require far less maintenance than real wood. They are assembled with stainless steel fasteners which wonât rust or stain. The image plate is permanently adhered to the shrine.
The overall size of the shrines are:
- 10" wide by 11.5" tall (4"x6" image)
- 12.5" wide by 15.5" tall (6"x9" image)
- 15" wide by 19.5" tall (8"x12" image)
The shrines have a 2.5"-3.5" overhang to help protect the image. We also have just the aluminum image plate available for sale if you wish to build your own style shrine!
The metal image plate is removable and there is a wide variety of images available to collect and use different liturgical seasons.
Each image plate is comprised of a semi-gloss vinyl print mounted on ACM (1/8 inch thick Aluminum Composite Material), an outdoor signage material that consists of two thin aluminum sheets bonded together with a polyethylene core for added stability, strength, and durability. ACM is commonly used in the small business world for outdoor signage, and most of us unknowingly pass by ACM signs every day. By using ACM in devotional shrines and prayer walks, we consider this common sign material to be baptized with a renewed purpose and character.
These plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading. For devotees who live above the 40th parallel, or who are able to face their stations to the North or South, many more years of perfect image fidelity are possible! Nonetheless, all things in this world will fade with time, and even the ideal conditions of minimal sunlight will eventually result in fading, even if this is decades down the road. This durable product makes an excellent gift for any occasion!
Mounting: They come with a keyhole slot in the back to be hung up. Or you can mount them to stakes and stick them in the ground. We sell a set of stakes that come with screws to make assembly easier!
