Nordic Mandala | Organic T-Shirt
Odin’s quest for the mead of poetry famously appears within Skáldskapármal, though references to the tale are scattered throughout the Poetic Edda, implying how important it may have been to the people of the past.
Those familiar with the story can easily identify prevalent themes of Nordic lore - such as the number 9 and shape shifting, as well as the capacity for blood, saliva, and mead to imbue traits like wisdom.
Inspired by the wellspring of symbolism within the narrative, Sean (Sacred Knot Tattoo) created a mandala with 9 panels, each harbouring a unique bind rune and intricate reference to the events of this tale.
Material & Make
Our t-shirts are made with ethically sourced 100% organic cotton and are hand printed in house by Northern Fire artists at our workshop in Wales. Our inks are water based and locally sourced and to minimise the negative impact of the textile industry on the environment.
