The Oak King
As the earth awakens with spring, features of the seasons are reflected in both land and folklore.
In the words of The Saxon Storyteller himself:
“As the Holly King retreats, the Oak King begins afresh his reign. With his oaken staff he prods the bulbs in the soil to grow and shakes his oak leaf rattle to awaken the buds on the bough.”
Oak trees have been affiliated with ancient Celts through writings of Strabo and Pliny the Elder (to name a few).
But oaks are also heavily linked to Thor and groves of worship among Germanic cults.
“The Oak King” by The Saxon Storyteller comes printed on 250 gsm uncoated art board.
