About This Item

The idea for this coin was to make a rather simple design and turn it to get different sceneries: a forest, a field, a campfire and the sea. On top of the sceneries are prints of different petroglyphs from my area. The backside is from a gilded clasp fro the 8th century found of Gotland, showing characteristic animal ornaments. 

This version, "Under the pale moon" shows a warrior that is attacked by a beast at a campfire, The picture of the warrior is from a rune stone placed at Ytterenhörna church north of Södertälje. The stone has been used as structural part of the church and is quite worn, so I had to do some assumptions of the original design. As you can see the artist didn't know of the concept of perspective drawing...

The stone is dated to 1020-1050 BC
