Handmade Moor Oak “Maskenstein von Aarhus” Maskstone of Aarhus


Out of stock


Carving after an old stone, erected about 1000 a.c. in Jütland, Denmark. The Mask seems to be a protecting spirit.
Moor oak is an ancient wood from an European tree having laid in a swamp, moor or mine for about 800-6000 years. This means, that this wood is a direct link to the European past. The black color is done by a natural process!  It’s painted with natural casein colour, oiled with linen oil, waxed and sanded. The Mask seems to be a protecting spirit.

Measures 24 x 16 x 1 cm

It’s not sure which kings are meant.
