I like how this imagery brings together many elements of old that so many people today want to categorize and separate. Very nicely done :)

That would be lovely. :)

I really, really like how you incorporated the solar cross into this design. :) Reminds me of seeing that symbol in the wagon wheels of the Trundholm Sun Chariot ([link]), or the Gefion Fountain ([link]) when I was in Copenhagen this summer.

We've not really had an encompassing holy tide artwork motif, and this really delivers.

Thanks alot for the fine words.
The inspiration is almost correct.
There are alot of solar crosses in stonecarvings from the bronze and viking age. I think the wheel symbolize the 4 parts of the year so i
thought it could be nice with something from each part comming out.

Its almost the same in denmark we dont have so much heathen artwork for each seasons. so i know what to do in the cold vinter.

I think its to late to get it printed as greeting cards before the 21/12 heathen vinter feast but next year ill take revenge.

By the way nice photos are they from your jouney to dnmark lately ;)

Yes, I posted some select photos from my trip here to DA, I have a ton more that I haven't posted. I must have taken like 30 photos of the Gefion Fountain alone from a variety of angles. Silly I know.

I took about 150 photos or so in Copenhagen when I was there, and about 50 more in Arhus/Moesgard.

My trip went from Germany: Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg to Denmark: Copenhagen, Arhus, Ebeltoft, Moesgard back to Copenhagen for the airport home. 2 weeks of travel. It was alot of fun. But it was nice to be home, I had a hard time finding food to eat (I have alot of food allergies) and ate more spiegel (and oh how I hate aspargus!) then I care to recall. Including some enterprising chefs who turned it into sorbet, and soups, and cakes...

It was kind of neat in a way because my father's family immigrated from Oldenburg in the 1700's. So it was kind of a neat little aspect of my trip that the train-ride from Hamburg to Copenhagen passed briefly through Oldenburg.

I always meant to head back just as the sunset late at night both there and at the Little Mermaid statue to get that twilight/sunsetting type of sky for a different type of shot with different lighting, but I was too worn out and was sleeping by then!

I really loved the trip from Arhus to Ebeltoft, the countryside was so beautiful.

I really like this. :)

I'd love some greeting cards with this design, sort of an all purpose any time of year blank card I can send out to my fellow heathen friends. :)
