Design created by Tattooist Balder Anderson based on the "Thor Petroglyph" rock engraving, shows a man riding a chariot drawn by a goat. The man holds the reins in one hand and a hammer in the other. The most likely interpretation is that the man is a thunder god—the Bronze Age counterpart of the god later known to the Vikings as Thor. The thunder god's attribute was an axe or a hammer, The pantheons of virtually all Indo-European cultures feature a divine Thunderer, often conceived of as a warrior, armed and riding in a two-wheeled chariot.
