Sacrificial Altars in Gothenburg
I took these photos years ago, when living in Gothenburg - and re-discovered them just this evening. These are old heathen sacrificial altars, from like Bronze Age and forward, and have been used to almost modern times from time to time, for various purposes (in times of need etc.).
The top one is located in Torsby (“Thor’s Village”!) just outside Gothenburg, and is called Gloshed Altare. There’s a lot of folklore surrounding this place, on which you can “Google” yourself. Most of it in Swedish though. It’s said that the altar was cracked and destroyed by Christians during the conversion.
The second one is “Domarbordet” (“Judge’s Table”) near Säve Airport. Folklore has it, that human sacrifices were made on that “table”. Later on in history, they carried on the tradition, and executed people on that spot in the name of the law (“God’s” law). The Judge is said to have laid his law books on the table, thus the name “Domarbordet”.
The last one of actually two altars (doubt I got any “digital pics” of the other one) located in Slottsskogen inside Gothenburg city. Today it’s located inside a small meadow in a “Mini Zoo”, where goats are being held. I wonder if they can smell some of their ancestors blood on this rock slab?
I intend to get a whole lot more of pictures posted later on, of various pre-Christian cultic sites and so forth from Sweden. I got literally thousands of pictures from probably a couple of hundred different sites. I just need to have them scanned, which is what’s keeping me back…
In the meantime, enjoy these.
I’ve been wanting to take pictures of my crystals for so long, I’ve finally taken a good photo to share with you all
Up right fairy ring
The skull-shaped Snapdragon Flower Dragon(Antirrhinum majus) seed pod. The Antirrhinum, commonly known as the snapdragon has been a popular garden plant for many years. Also known as the dragon flower, its common name derives from the resemblance of the flower to a dragon’s head.Yet once the flower has died, leaving behind the seed pod, something a little more macabre appears. The dragon – just a visual metaphor after all – appears to have a skull.
If you burn incense on charcoal, try using salt instead of sand in the container.
You can then mix the ashes with the salt and you’ll always have powerful “black” salt at hand.
I use it for purification, protection and especially for cleansing my home with.
