Att binda djur och väva strid. Om djurornamentikens innebörder.

Domeij, Maria (2006) p.120-135
Abstract
Animal ornamentation was a dominating expression of art in Scandinavia during the period c. 250-1250 AD. In this chapter i am trying to nuance and deepen our understanding of animal ornamentation as a possible cognitive expression. By relating its images to the metaphorical language of early medieval skaldic poetry I suggest that its meanings have been tightly knit to an ideology of honour and warfare.



Since animal ornamented objects are associated to both men and women in the archaeological record, any ideological implication behind them must have included both sexes. In this article I wish to discuss the structures of animal ornamentation in relation to an engendered ideology of warfare and honour.
