Still looking for the perfect Christmas/Yule present?
Look no further!
The 2017 Pagan Calendar, published by Windsong Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and continuation of polytheistic practices, gives you works from artists from across the world. Among them is featured a print of my Asa-Thor painting, which was picked exclusively for the calendar.
So, if you follow any Heathen tradition, whether you consider yourself Asatrú, Slavic or Celtic..., or just being in love with myth and culture, this might be the gift for you.

You can buy it via Amazon here: amzn.to/2hdJtZK

Have a good Winter season and stay in good health!

The World Between Ascent And Abyss
"In an age of invention and reason", Auerhammer mused, "the forces of superstition and magick strike out and threaten all we hold dear. We will not sit idle, my friends. We will fight back. We will conquer!"

Viking Sword Scabbard
Scabbard and sword-belt for a Viking Age sword from about 800 AD.
The sword (a Geibig Combination-type 1 Var. VI from northern Germany) was made by Karl Bertram, belt fittings provided by Mike Fluegel (Das Podol) and Raymond's Quiet Press after findings from Gotland & Birka. The tablet weaving securing the belt slider was made by Sabine Fluess. Scabbard & all leather parts made by me.
Scabbard with felt, wooden core, foundation moulding and leather covering made in style of contemporary originals.

Gutenstein Style Sword Scabbard
A project that occupied me a long time: The recreation of a Merovingian sword scabbard in the style of about 600 AD, after imagery from the scabbard pressblech found at Gutenstein in Germany. The wolf warrior's scabbard is depicted in detail, you can view the original image on wikipedia: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil…

The sword for the project is a Germanic spatha featuring a replica of the famous pommel from Niederstotzingen (Grave 1, Alammanic), the steel parts of the hilt assembly are additions by the Smith though. The sword was made by Vladimir Cervenka.
As the spatha's heft is very slim in Profile, I wanted to make a scabbard that is very slim and tight to the blade. So I started on a wooden core without fur or felt inside, like the early scabbards from Nydam. Utilizing two planks of poplar with a thickness of 4-5 mm, I clamped them wet around a slender Piece of Wood and let them dry, then shaped and ground them.
The wooden core of two bend poplar boards was glued together with a surrounding layer of linen. On this strips of cord were glued according to the imagery model, the pieces of cord then sewn together at the backside. A piece of calfskin is used as outer layer.
Then the scabbard was coloured with a self-mixed stain. A chape and two borders (Randleisten) were hammered from copper alloy sheet metal; the wooden slider that is used for fastening to the baldric was carved and sanded from birchwood and treated with hot lineseed oil.
The scabbard was then attached to the sword belt according to archaeological documentation by L. Lüppes (www.academia.edu/18468185/AK_4…), using contemporary pyramidal mounts and sword belt made by craftsman Hakun Risti.

Thank you for looking.
