Teraphim – “Plural word of unknown derivation used in the Old Testament to denote…house gods, whose cult has been handed down to historical times from the earlier period of nomadic wanderings.”
The first in a new series of Teraphim works that represent the personal narrative and meaning accruing to works that form part of everyday domestic ritual through the suggestion of benign forces (usually) hidden and undetected within otherwise mundane objects.
