    Torslunda Plate Ritual Rabbit Hide Pagan Alter Cloth

    Alter cloths are used for rituals, rune casting, and as a centerpiece for your alter. It also can be used as a wrap to protect your ritual tools, and rune sets. These alter cloths are light brown, to dark brown rabbit fur, with the design printed with a hand cut linoleum block on the soft leather side in black ink, and measures approximately 14" by 16." Sizes and color vary from hide to hide, but I make every effort to deliver the alter cloth most closely matching the listing photos.

    Natural Edges vs Trimmed and Clean!

    You can also opt for a more raw, wild look for the ritual cloth! By leaving much of the jagged edge unaltered, I can offer the ritual cloth for a more affordable cost to the buyer, since I don't put the extra work into the process of crafting your ritual cloth.

    Your sacred space will be even more beautiful with this hand crafted alter cloth!

    About the Design.

    "Walking warriors carrying spears."

    The beautiful artwork printed on the alter cloth is based upon the decorative pre-Viking helmet plate stamp found in the Vendel I grave, 7th century AD. In Swedish prehistory, the Vendel Period (c. 540–790) comes between the Migration Period and the Viking Age.

    Torslunda Plates

    The original Torslunda plates are four cast bronze dies found on Öland in Sweden, and have been dated to the Vendel Period of the 6th and 7th centuries.They display figures in relief, believed to be scenes from Pre Viking Norse mythology. The designs are generally known as "walking warriors carrying spears", "man between bears", "man with axe holding roped animal",  and "dancing man with horned head-dress and man with spear wearing wolf skin". The last depiction is particularly well known for its missing right eye, shown by a laser scanner. This suggests that it depicts Odin. The wolf skin warrior is believed to portray a berserker, or Ulfhedinn. 

    The plates were designed for production rather than display; by placing thin sheets of foil against the scenes and hammering or otherwise applying pressure from the back, identical images could be quickly mass-produced. The resulting foils, or plates would be used to decorate rich helmets of the sort found at Vendel, Valsgärde, and Sutton Hoo.
