A fantastic statue of a woman holding two snakes, an interpretation of an image found on a Viking Age picture stone. The motif is believed to originate from the ancient Guta Saga where the woman Vitastjerna dreams of giving birth to three snakes. Her husband interpreted the dream with the words: "Everything is bound in circles. We shall build on this land and have three sons". The depicted woman is thus connected to fertility. The base has two Elder Futhark Pertho runes.
A handmade, original design, it is cast it in acrylic resin and painted to resemble ancient bronze by a Swedish artist. This statue makes a great centerpiece on any shelf, table or shrine.
This statue is used by people in modern day Scandinavia both as decoration and in small shrines. The original picture stone is dated to the 5th -7th Century and was found at Rikvide burial field in Gotland, Sweden.
