Funkiskök i teak

Wand Ceremony Women could have real power in the Viking Age. This is a modern reconstruction of a ceremony rod found in a rich and powerful woman's tomb on the island of Öland. The rod was a symbol of power and those who carried it certainly played a large part in the religious cult. In the grave were the remains of a ship, the bones of many sacrificed animals, valuable jewelry and precious objects imported from distant lands.

Silver figure in the Historiska Museet in Stockholm. From Birka. Again, good contrast. The outfit is very similar to the other valkyrie. What puzzles me is why we would see a clear side gore?
