The Blue rune stone

Spring 1995
I'm starting to carve a small and thin rune stone suitable to transport between events.

As the stone was not any order I figured it was time to experiment with colors.

When the ornament was carved the dragon's body was painted with blue and the knot in gold. The eye was painted with roasted iron oxide mixed with linseed oil.

But then someone took my stone ...

A rune stone has a long life, more then 1000 years. I'm sure it comes back sooner or later.

What if it suddenly standing at my site on Adelsö one morning when I wake up or it is a note in my mailbox that tells where to find it.

I'd love to get it back.

Size:
Height and width: 70 x 50 cm.
