A votive offering is an object (often a high status artifact) left in a sacred place for ritual purposes. Such items are a feature of modern and ancient societies and are generally made in order to gain favor with supernatural forces. Votive offerings have been described in historical Roman era and Greek sources, although similar acts continue into the present day, for example the modern day practice of tossing coins into a wishing well or fountain.

Images imported into Ultra Fractal
for creative purposes come from my own resources. As some of these are not fractal in nature DA's Fractal Manipulations
gallery seems the most suitable place for this.
