Recently found this Do It Yourself Instruction for handmade woodprints on tumblr. I think it’s a really interesting idea and also easy to make. The tattoos seem to appear in very weak and fading color, which gives the wood a very special look.
Feel free to try it out yourself and post your artworks in comments.
Portals from Stave Churches in Norway. These photos were taken at the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo. I believe the typical designs (the curling lines of wood) are the branches of Yggdrasil, as syncretism was the norm during this time as Christians began the conversion of the Pagans and so Norse myth was often depicted in Stave Churches. These portals would have been on each door of the church (often there were three to four).
