My wife would like to use this for a tattoo, could we have your permission?

Your Welcome to use it for a tattoo;)

Just send me a photo of the final result.

Do you need a picture with higher resolution?
Vikingjack Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012
I wouldn't hurt, but the one you have here on DeviantArt is pretty good.

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

Thank you, nice words ;)

Thank you Wandering image good idea. ;)

Im considdering to put som colours on it with watercolours and have them printed as postcards. then i could send you a few pieces.
wanderingmage Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011
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 know the situation I also turn into Japanese mode
When im on vaccation just because it would be sad when i come home and some pictures
has a bad fokus or angle.

Once i was in Norway i took about 400 pictures of mountans, waterfall and pine trees. ;)
Its very good because i can use them as inspiration in my art.

It sounds lke you had agood trip to Denmark an d northern Germany.
Berlin is a cool city I would like to go there again soon.

I have participated in a vikingfestival in oldeburg few years ago.

I would also like to go to america drive across the land, like in a road movie, but my financial situation
is not the best at the momment so i have to wait a few years.

Years ago I had the opportunity to go to Israel, I went through a roll of film a day, and came home with something like 500 photos for about 7 days.

I loved my time in Berlin, and the Pergammon Museum in Berlin was absolutely AMAZING.

America is really vast, so you probably need to plan for 2-3 weeks to do that sort of road trip. It takes about a week of driving from the east coast to the west coast. What type of things interest you, as I could probably give you some suggestions for places that you might enjoy.

I'm doing a road trip next year, I'm flying out to the Gullah coast, stopping at some ancient Native American sites (related to the mound builders) and then I will follow the Cherokee Trail of Tears [link] I have great-great-great grandmothers from both my mother's and father's line who survived it.

he he hopefully yu brouht some extra SD-cards to your camera.

Berlin is great i have been there few times one time for a concert with a band called Blutengel.
We spend most of the time in eastern Berlin which have alot of nice bar's and shops.
I would like to go there again.

Well i problery wanted to go to view some historic places like battlefields from the civil war.
when i was a teenager i was very interested in the american civil war. I also want to do something different
Like staying with some indians for few days.

The road trip you are planning sounds very interesting.
That would be a much niceer experience than just do route 66
like everyone does.

When I was younger I lived in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The town has colonial history, many key early American leaders came from the area, and ties to the Civil War as several major battles (The Battle of Fredericksburg, The Battle of the Wilderness, The Battle of Chancellorsville, and the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House) were fought in the city, or near to it.

This is also the city that started nurse Clara Barton into forming the Red Cross. There's a Confederate Cemetery in the city. General Hugh Mercer was also from the area, so you can visit his old Apothecary shop. Another U.S. president, James Monroe, also comes from the area and you can visit a museum dedicated to him.

The city is close to George Washington's boyhood home Ferry Farm (later owned by General Hugh Mercer) so on American Independence Day my family and I would go there and have picnics on the lawn where our first President grew up.

Fredericksburg, is about an hour or so travel time from Washington D.C. And If you have the chance to go to D.C. I'd really encourage you to check out the Smithsonian museums.

A good road trip to me, is a combination of scenic splendor, local flavor, and finding sites of national significance. As such, you should look at the U.S. National Parks: [link] which includes natural landscapes preserved for future generations, national monuments & memorials, historic sites, and battlefields. The link above, allows you to look for ideas by 'theme' and includes a 'civil war' option. :)

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. :)
