Swastika Symbel Bowl

Mark did all the woodburning on this bowl and made this for Jotun Bane Kindred.
Mark explains:
"The bowl is a Symbel bowl, and is used by Jotun's Bane Kindred during ritualized rounds of toast-making. The bowl symbolizes the three wells at the roots of the world tree Yggdrasil. At the end of each round of toasts, mead is poured three times from the drinking horn into the bowl, and then three ladles of mead are transferred from the bowl back into the horn. This exchange of mead represents a sharing of gifts, and deeds, and purposeful words with our Gods and Goddesses. Its a mingling of Wyrd between our heathen tribe and our Holy Wights."

  1. It is really sad that people are not looking into the history of the symbol they are just taking what they have seen in media and white supremist groups and thinking that is all that there is...

  2. I agree. In making this bowl and using this symbol, we are making a very active choice to not allow Hitler to control our view and usage of a Holy Symbol of our people...a Holy Symbol of our ancestors. Its our symbol, and we are determined to reclaim it. -Mark
