Bindrune & Dragon | Original Painting on Canvas
Dragons of the Viking Age are present in both lore and artistry. Often times wrapped about themselves (and other detailed creatures within scrolling knotwork), these beasts reign supreme as the animal of choice within ancient Nordic Art styles.
This original piece, painted by Sean Parry of Sacred Knot Tattoo is wound about a bindrune sigil. While its eye shape is a nod to later Viking Age art styles, this is an artistic take on the pieces inspired by Urnes creatures seen on Early Medieval stave churches.
