Bowl with Three Norns by Edita-Woodcarver Bowl with Three Norns by Edita-Woodcarver

Made of Linden wood
70 cm x 55 cm / 27.6 in x 21.7 in

Serving bowl for wine bottles, wine glasses and snacks

"In Norse mythology, the Norns (pronounced like “norms” with an “n” instead of the “m”; Old Norse Nornir) are three female divine beings

who have more influence over the course of destiny than any other beings in the cosmos. They dwell within the Well of Urd beneath

Yggdrasil, the great ash tree that stands at the center of the universe and holds the Nine Worlds in its branches and roots. They shape

destiny by carving runes into the trunk of the tree, or, in some sagas and poems, by weaving destiny like a web or tapestry.

Their names are Urd (Old Norse Urðr, “What Once Was”), Verdandi (Old Norse Verðandi, “What Is Coming into Being”) and Skuld (Old Norse

Skuld, “What Shall Be”)." (norse-mythology.org/gods-and-c…)

Bowl with Three Norns by Edita-Woodcarver The suggester said: "This piece is highly crafted and contains great mythological symbolism. There are Three Fates who tangled threads of our destiny. This motif is repeated in many cultures and this is one of the most beautiful presentation of this topic I've ever seen." ( Suggested by Ljotunnr and Featured by cakecrumbs )
