About the Design.
The beautiful artwork painted on the alter cloth is based upon the rock carvings of Bronze Age Lur-blowers from Kalleby in Bohuslän, west Sweden.
Since the first find, the lurs have been shrouded in mystery and their purpose has frequently been discussed. In a museum catalogue from 1836 the musical instruments are described as ‘lurs or war trumpets of bronze’. Especially in the nineteenth century, the lurs were mentioned regularly as a signal instrument used in war. However, it is more likely that they were used in connection with rituals. On Swedish rock carvings from the Bronze Age one can see lur-blowers who are undoubtedly participating in processions or religious rites. Lurs are also exclusively found in bogs, perhaps because of their special role in religion.
