Altar Cloths and Coverings - When the term Altar Cloth and/or Covering is used in reference to a Magickal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to an item which is the first layer placed on an Altar which is to be used in Magickal and/or Spiritual Workings, specifically made for general or particular Magickal Working, and/or consecrated to the same. It is a convenient way to change and add patterns, symbols and so forth appropriate to a particular Working, without restructuring the Altar itself, which in many traditions is a simple basic type structure, often a solid coloured double-cube. Cloth is the most frequent, but any material may be used, including metals, pottery, woods and so forth, in some cases the material itself may be chosen for a resonance with the Working to be performed, textural, colour, or any other attribute.
