Tanum

I owe y’all a catch-up post for the last few days, but first I’ll tell about Tanum, where we were yesterday (Sunday). This area, on the western coast of Sweden, has one of the highest concentrations of Bronze Age rock carvings anywhere on earth. Most of the carvings date between 1500bc – 1ad.

I will let them speak for themselves.

bull pulling the sun

mourning woman

This one means "Don't drop your cell phone off the boat."

This is the biggest rock carving of a god/dude. Ever.

Sacred reindeer doing that sacred thing he does...

These guys are fighting the Celts. You can tell because their shields are square.

fertility goddess

These guys are hunting with their dogs. Can you tell I miss Kubla?
