Regin and Sigurd Roast the Dragon's Heart.
Panels are replicas from the Hylestad stave church archway entrance.
Patterned after the bird bowl found in Hedeby Harbor and currently at the Haithabu Viking Museum in Busdorf, Germany. It is theorized to have been used in some sort of ritual.
These carvings took quite a while to make, but was a lot of fun, too. This version's pieces are based on the Hnefatafl game sold by Norse America ( http://www.norseamerica.com/).
13 white pieces (including the king) - defensive side
24 brown pieces - offensive side
The pieces are made of basswood painted with acrylic and then antiqued with old oak gel stain. The board is pine and is finished with Danish oil and beeswax.
