All ten of the lotus pillars for the Temple of Isis the Radiant Goddess for SunFest XXII are complete! So are the decorative lotus facing boards for the temple floor and roofing. Yay! That was easy. Here’s what the lotus pillars look like all finished and all in a group.

The lotus pillars for the Temple of Isis...sort of like you'll see them as you enter Her temple's holy of holies.

Work is now being done on the temple roof, which will be covered in stars, the belly of Her Mother Nuet. The lotus pool is also under construction. Yes, a lotus pool. Yes, with water. Yes, with lotuses.

Also under construction is the holy of holies, the shrine where the sacred image of Isis will be housed and where she will be available to all who come to the festival. Our artist friend, Raya (see her art here http://dancingraya.com), is making two guardian Goddesses in embossed copper to grace the doors. Here’s what the shrine cabinet looks like right now:
