The concept that involved into ''Cult Images'', are the oldest form of religious practice. From the earliest of ''God'' worship (which at first was Celestial in nature  The Moon, Sun, Stars etc.), Man wished to honor their Beliefs through their personification, among them. The fashioning of images from stone, wood and later more refined Mediums of Art would become the norm. Early Man fashioned their ''God Images'' after their own perceptions, based on the way The Deity was worshiped. This included His or Her ''offerings''. The most common wording to describe to describe Cult Imagery would be ''Idol''. These were used for Physical ''worship'' of a Deity. Such Images were used primarily in Temples, but were later adopted for ''Household'' usage, normally in Family Altars and specially designated places.
