Just awesome, you've got all my respect for preserving and reinvent European arts.
We have lost so much important things....
But here you are saving "expertise", abilities, and an important part of culture.
Thank you for this great job and your talented art skills ! You rock !

Yes, I take great pleasure in recreating ancient crafts.
Indeed many things got lost, most important is that man-power is often much better than engine-power.

Nothing to thank for - these patterns (especially the ones from Oseberg) are my obsession since many years.
And I think I have never seen them recreated in a similarly magnificent way! If that's okej for you, I will do some promotion for your work by linking to your website on my blog and so on...

:iconthorleifr:
Thorleifr Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2009
Yeah, those patterns are amazing. I could have done a better job, though, at some places. I'll do another version of it soon, on customer request...

Well, I can only say many thanks if you do a little bit of promotion!

Great job!
Did you make photos while carving this? Or will you carve another 'viking ship'? I'd like to propose you write an article (step by step) about it for the Woodcarving Magazine Tatianka (Moscow / Russia).

Thanks, Yes, I did a lot of photos, and have received an order for a simplified (cheaper ;) ) version of this..

Amazing! You put so many intricate details into this.
It's well worth the look!
Do you mind if I ask what kind of wood you used? Is it pine wood?

Amazing work.
