Vitruvian Thor Art Print

  • £15.00
Size
Design

This piece of art by Colin Dale of Skin & Bone Tattoo features the well known Viking deity Thor. 

He has chosen to portray Thor in the style of the famous Vitruvian Man drawing by Leonardo Da Vinci, from the 15th Century. Da Vinci was inspired by a Roman architect called Vitruvius who had written a guide to creating perfect proportion during construction and wanted to explore the same ideas within the human anatomy.

It is fitting that the immaculately proportioned Thunder God is depicted within the coils of the Midgard Serpent, Jormungandr, as his coils were supposed to encircle the world.

About The Artist

Colin Dale of Skin & Bone is one of the legends of modern Nordic tattooing. He first began as an apprentice in 1991 at Kunsten pa Kroppen (now run by Kai Uwe Faust). After several years of learning the basic skills of hand and machine tattooing Colin began travelling again to destinations as far away as French Polynesia... exchanging and discussing techniques with tattoo masters from Borneo, Samoa and Tahiti. Colin's research has helped to reintroduce the lost tattooing techniques of the Nordic, Native American and Inuit cultures. His work has been illustrated in various books, magazines and documentary programs. It is an honour to have him on board and we are excited to share some of his art with you here
