Man on a quest

Here we have another man on a quest, that travelled all the way from the north of sweden to get the wished symbols on his skin.
What we see here is the tree of life with Hugin and Munin woven in the so called Vendel style in the branches, the leaves are in speartip shape, a hommage to the highest god, Odin.
Furthermore is Lokis mask in the trunk, the bearer named his first son Loki.
In the roots we see the three Nornes, Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, depicted in the Oseberg style or Gripping Beast style.
The whole design has the shape of a Thors Hammer.
