The pilgrimage is nearly complete. Today's shrine, a hand-made ode to Ganesha, is the last iPod Shrine of the Day.

Here's the deal, and it's the last time I'm going to tell you: Entries must be accompanied by a photograph in JPG format—72 dpi, max 400 pixels on the top side. Please, NO HUGE PHOTOS OR WE WILL CRY (download Gimp if you don t have a good photo editor). Also, write us two or three sentences describing the devotional, its symbology and what makes it sacred. Send entries to gizmodobox@gmail.com with IPOD SHRINE in the subject line. Repeat: Entries must be sent to gizmodobox@gmail.com with the subject line IPOD SHRINE; all others will be unceremoniously deleted.
