19 oil canvases with runic signs - symbols originating in ancient pagan times.

Runes are called the letters of an alphabet used by german tribes, mostly in Scandinavia and at the British Isles. On the origin of runes scandinavian mythology tells that the god Odin received them after he came down from the Tree of Life "Yggdrasil" and sacrificed himself. The earliest runic inscriptions date back from around 150 years of the new age. With the introduction of Christianity the runes were replaced by the latin alphabet. Despite that they were still used, but for more specific purposes. For instance they were used until the 20-th century for decorations and runic calendars. Runes are best suited for writing on hard materials like stone or wood using sharp objects. They were replaced by the Latin letters, which are better for writing on papyrus or leather, but are suitable for stone insciptions as well.
All this provokes my interest in antiquity, the touching of rituals and secrecy, magical symbols which used to give faith to some euro-asian tribes and people in those pagan times. Each painting has its own message and power of impact. These are a part of the oil canvases.
