Cult image

In the practice of religion, a cult image (or idol) is a human-made object that is venerated for the deity, spirit or daemon that it embodies or represents. Cultus, the outward religious formulas of “cult” (meaning religious practice, as opposed to the pejorative term for a potentially dangerous “new religion”), often centers upon the treatment of cult images, which may be dressed, fed or paraded, etc.
