Selling this piece of birch bark with the word "Vegan" and "All Equal" written in Proto-Germanic language and Elder Futhark runes together with a World Tree and various animals.
Dimensions: 7cm in height (highest part), 16.5cm in breadth (longest part). Made with vegan and cruelty-free gel pens and varnish. I only collect tree bark from the forest floor or from fallen trees. Please handle this item carefully, as the bark is fragile.
The World Tree (known as Yggdrasil in Norse mythology and Irminsul in Old Saxon) is a universal human symbol found across the world. It is most commonly a symbol of connection and life. The animals surrounding the tree are a raven (reminiscent of Hugin and Munin from Norse mythology), a horse, a fish, and a human - all dependent on plant life/the forest, all connected, and all equal.
The word "Vegan" in the centre of the tree is written in English (with the W-rune for V, as there is no rune for V), while "All Equal" is written in Proto-Germanic (the reconstructed parent language of all Germanic languages) - "Allo Ebnu" (both words in neuter plural). The elder futhark runes are the oldest runes (used appr. from the first century until the 8th century AD for northwest germanic dialects), developed from variants of the Etruscan alphabet.
