Holy Forest with Yggdrasil
Holy Forest with Yggdrasil, 100x100cm, oil on canvas, 2014
Yggdrasil, the Tree of Life is a yew. The Yggdrasil, shows three roots: the one leads into the water (Hvergelmir) the other is the spiral of DNA (Urd) and the other root goes in the death (Mimir's arm bones). In the middle there are three branches: positive, negative or magical center. The topmost branches lead three times in the Otherworld. To direct the eyes at the two lungs of the tree, there only a few yew needles are shown.
