The Tjangvide picture stone was found in 1844 on the farm of Tjangvide and is now located in the Swedish Museum of National Antiquities.  The original stone is carved from flat limestone and measures 1.7 meters tall.  Our small replica is made from stone and resin and is approximately 7.5" tall with wood stand.  The stone itself is about 6" tall, 5.25" wide and .5" thick.  Our artist has filled in some of the details which are missing from the original.  The stone is divided into upper and lower fields.  The upper field probably depicts Odin on his eight legged horse Sleipnir.  There also appears to be several Valkyries doing some sort of ritual with one holding a drinking horn.  The upper right of the picture may be a dead warrior being flown to Valhalla by a Valkyrie.  The large item in the upper left could be some sort of funeral pyre or perhaps it represents Valhalla or its gates.  There is also an animal pictured which is probably a dog.  The lower field depicts a Viking ship loaded with warriors.

Made in the UK.

    Im so glad these copies of Nordic rune stones are available. I was looking for something special for my Norse Pagan alter and this will work beautifully. The size is perfect and the restoration of the details missing from the original are well done. I plan to purchase one or two more if they are available.

    If you are fascinated with Norse history and mythology, then this product will be a welcome addition to your collection. It is a good size and well produced. Customers in the UK please note that there will also be additional customs duty charged on this item. But if like me this product is a great idea and a 'must have', you won't mind.
