I’m soon purchasing a few statues to practice evocation with, from the Greco-Roman and Egyptian pantheon.
However, I’m wondering whether they will still act as ‘gateways’ like charged sigils even after the ritual is completed? I know the answer is probably ‘it depends’ or ‘sometimes’, but in such a case how would I fully close them? I know it could be beneficial if working with the particular god for some time, but there’s going to be multiple and it’s largely for practice. I’m creating a temple space and I wouldn’t want it becoming too cluttered!
