Until now, I have made things looking at different styles or historical periods. That has worked well, but i felt that my items somehow lacked a good framework. Last week I wrote a very short origin story, about how a people in the early iron age might have explained where all the rock carvings came from. I like storytelling and thought that maybe a story like that one could be that framework. So, if I can find the time and money necessary to create a kind of exhibition with objects, music and a story to follow, I might have found my next big project after the door that I'm working on now. The story is here below, but unfortunately just in Swedish, since I find it difficult to bring the same tone in another language.



Hällristningarnas ursprung
(bör läsas högt och rätt så långsamt för stämningens skull)

I början fanns gudarna, varelser av sten och metall. Deras hem var urberget. På den tiden var sten och metall inte kallt och hårt, utan glödande hett och formbart som lera. Bergen var som flytande vatten och stormande hav. Där, i värmen, levde gudarna, de reste med skepp, jagade och stred mot varandra. Så hade de alltid gjort, och skulle förmodligen alltid fortsätta, om deras hem inte börjat förändras. Med tiden svalnade urberget, blev fastare. Det började längst ned och drev sakta gudarna och deras djur uppåt, mot ytan.

Där hade ytan också stelnat. Bergen, som förut varit vågtoppar, reste sig högt upp mot himlen. Träd hade börjat växa och sjöar med vatten bildats. Gudarnas fångstdjur bröt sig fria från stenen de kommit från och gav sig in i skogarna. För att få mat och inte fastna själva så följde gudarna efter dem. Det är den flykten från urberget som vi idag kan se på hällarna vid älvarna.

Gudarna förstod snart att inga fler kunde födas ur det nu stelnade berget. Därför tog de trä och lera, som var lätt att forma, och skapade nya varelser ur dem. Så föddes människan. Men gudarna såg att människan inte var samma sak som de själva. Formade ur olika material som de var, kunde gudarna inte förstå dem. Människorna bröt sig fria och lämnade sina skapare på samma sätt som djuren försvunnit in i skogarna. Gudarna stod kvar och såg tillbaka på de berg de aldrig skulle kunna återvända till.

Thank you. My advice is to just jump into it and try. Find a blacksmith and ask him/her to show you. Most are happy to do so.
