ENCHANTING PICTURE STONES
The Images on the tray can be found on the Gotlandic picture stones. Pinwheels, sunwheels and animals in Bright colours once decorated these magnificent stones. They were carved in Gotlandic limestone or sandstone and were erected by Islanders from the 5th Century onwards. The symbols probably emanate from earlier Cultures in Southern and central Europé, indicating some form of Communication between Gotland and the Mediterranean.
The originals can be seen at Gotland Museum.
