"Member Promotional"


"Hail Members!" :iconvikingwarplx:


We were thinking that if anyone (":iconscandinavia-vikings: members only") would like us to place some kind of link or special mention of something their involved in , or something you would like to see placed here in our "Member Appreciation & Special Mentions" widget, that fits our theme. We would be happy to oblige.

What we would need are any "links" of course and a short description of what you would like to go into the widget.

Any members can ask the group directly, (with a massage) or send one of us (admin) a massage or note. And or send the group a note as to what it is that you would like us to display for you within our "Member Appreciation & Special Mentions" widget.

However... whatever it is that you would like to see displayed, it must fit our theme, without exceptions.

There is no time limit yet as to how long any one "Member's Promo" will remain displayed within the widget. It's all contingent/based on the amount/number of requests we receive.

So get "cracking"...

If you'd like to see one of your "promo's" displayed.
Send us your best and we'll do what we can to display each and every request.Once again, it must fit our theme with no exceptions.

Think of this as a sort of "Member's Promotional""

:bulletgreen:We're very grateful for those who have become members!

:bulletgreen:We Appreciate you All! :iconvikingwarplx:

Yggdrasil The Tree of Life

Yggdrasil The Tree of Life photo SV_zps9bf58309.png

:iconleafborderplz::iconleafborderplz::iconleafborderplz:


In the middle of Asgard, where the gods lives, is Yggdrasil. Yggdrasil is the tree of life. It is an eternal green Ash tree; the branches stretches out over all of the nine worlds, and extend up and above the heavens. Yggdrasil is carried by three enormous roots. The first root from Yggdrasil is in Asgard, the home of the gods. By this root is a well named Urd’s well. This is where the gods held daily meetings. The second root from Yggdrasil goes down to Jotunheim, the land of the giants, by this root is Mimir's well.
The third root from Yggdrasil goes down to Niflheim, close to the well Hvergelmir. It is here the dragon Nidhug gnawed on one of Yggdrasils roots. Nidhug is also known to suck the blood out of the dead bodies. At the very top of Yggdrasil there lives an eagle. And down by the roots of the tree lives a dragon named Nidhug. The eagle and the dragon are bitter enemies. They truly despise each other. A squirrel named Ratatosk, is spending a lot of time each day, running up and down the tree. Ratatosk does whatever he can, to keep the hatred between the eagle and Nidhug alive. Every time Nidhug says a curse or an insult about the eagle, Ratatosk will run up to the top of the tree, and inform the eagle what Nidhug just said. The eagle is equally rude in his comments about Nidhug. Ratatosk just loves to gossip which is the reason why the eagle and the dragon remains constant foes.

Hello, I'm about to join anyway, but for the future reference I'm going to ask and make sure... this group accepts art related to all Nordic history/mythology themes, yes? I understood so, even if the gallery seems to contain mostly vikings / Norse mythology themed things. :)

I have to ask, because in my works I often mix especially Finnish, Norse and Sámi mythologies with culture historical things from any Nordic countries.

Yes we do accept all art related Nordic/Norse mythologies and culture.
