  • Nordic Solar Boat T-shirt

Design based on the Sun Worshippers petroglyph from Tanum,Sweden (1700-500 BC), depicting figures standing near to the sun in adoration or in praise of it. During the Nordic Bronze Age, worship of the sun is illustrated by a plethora of rock carvings and on artefacts such as the famous Trundholm Sun Chariot, which has lead experts to theorise that the Sun being drawn by a horse represented not only the cycle of the day but also the passage of time from birth to death.

A further petroglyph is based on a "dragon" style ship from Tanum, with another based on a "solar" style ship found at from Jaegersborg Dyrehave north of Copenhagen, Denmark (1100-700 BC)
