Berkano Materials: Archival Art Print Available sizes: 12 x 16 inches _______________________
About the Work: My illustration is based on the Nordic rune "Berkano". Literally translating to "Birch Goddess", this rune represents continued growth and rebirth, cycles, and female fertility and energy.
There is much speculation on which Norse goddess is the Birch Goddess. My favorite theory is that it actually represents parts of 3 goddesses; Freya, Frigga, and Hel. My illustration depicts these three goddesses surrounded by their associated symbols and items, as well as other motifs of Berkano.
