Dishcloth with motif from a picture stone in Fornsalen.
The snake goddess with her eye-catching, braided hairdo is holding a serpent and a dragon in her hands. The snake has had a great symbolic meaning in different ages and cultures. But the interpretation of the snake goddess is still disputed. This symbol is found on a 5th-7th century picture stone from Smiss, När.
