Petroglyph Shaman | Organic T-Shirt
This design was created by Kai-Uwe Faust of Kunsten på Kroppen Tattoo and has been hand printed in the Northern Fire studio.
Petroglyphs from Bronze Age Scandinavia remain some of the most iconic images of their time. Carved into stone by the ancients, petroglyph scenes depict wartime and ritual, or often a combination of both.
Though some of these individuals most likely depict gods or warriors, others harbor magical or shamanistic characteristics.
Kai Uwe-Faust of Heilung was inspired by these petroglyphs to create a person between the worlds of both battle and spirit, something ancient peoples of all cultures identified with, and an idea that is still very relevant today.
