"Loki" , meet "Loki"

Post # 1
Good afternoon.

I was planning to place a movie-accurate model, of Tom Hiddleston's "Loki", on my altar.

I know the difference between the movie/comic, and the Norse deities.

I'm looking for the opinions, of my fellow practitioners. Do you believe this would be offensive? Or do you think Loki would get a kick out of it?

I would recommend that you never, ever use movie depictions and modern non magical film merchandise.

I think Loki would get a kick out of it! Although it wouldnt hurt to form a close bond before doing so

I think it depends on your relationship with him. If you're close to him he may find it a tad bit funny. Or you could tell him you thought about it, a idea of a joke is always less offensive than actually committing to the action.

You will actually find that MANY Heathens use Tom Hiddleston's depiction of Loki in their practice. A lot of the UPG and PCPG I've read about it says that Loki gets a kick out of that sort of thing, and being the kind of guy he is, thinks it's really neat to see someone portraying certain aspects about himself. Like shadow said, however, it depends on your relationship. If you know him well, you should know how you think he would react to it. I wouldn't suggest someone new to working with Loki to us that image right off the bat.

To add onto what Pers said, if you use Tom's image, it'll distort how he really is to you. Which can offset and slow down progress with your workings. Think of it as looking at a painting or well anything with sunglasses, can't really see anything. That's kind of how your perception of a deity works. You don't see them as living breathing entity of some form, you see them as a certain way only. Well, you don't really learn much from them because of how you would refuse to see them as how they would prefer. I hope this helps and doesn't just kind of fill up space in the conversation.

Thank you, for your continuing replies, and concerns.

Come April, I will be a Lokean for 13 years. I don't believe having a movie replica, on my altar, will change how I see him.

I've dabbled in the use of voodoo dolls, and usually find them in "suggestive" poses, altar-wise.
So, as I get a kick our of the man and his character, I believe a figurine or photo would be a nice touch ...

If not, entertaining.

Any form of imitation is flattering.
