Tree of Life

This design was made together with Yggdrasil, the Viking Tree of Life.

This was a fun and brain-breaking design to make, it left me with a taste for future designs using this intricate style, in fact, at the moment of writing this post I'm watching the (horrible) series 'Vikings' as I work on a new sketch, and playing AC Valhalla at night before bed. 😆

You can find the Norse one by writing "Celtic Tree of Life".

Excerpt for Art Exhibition:

The Nordic Tree of Life

From the 8th to the 11th century, the Vikings lived in southern Scandinavia (now Denmark, Norway and Sweden). Although most of the people on the land were craftsmen, merchants, farmers, and fishermen, they became famous because of the raiders that looted and terrified the Europeans at the time, their attacks and actions profoundly affected the history of northern Europe.

Despite a lot of dark history, the Viking civilization had a rich culture, including their own writing system, laws, advanced crafts, art, and religion.

Legend has it that Yggdrasil is a tree that connects the nine worlds, including the Midgard (Humans realm), Asgard (the god’s realm), Vanaheim (Realm of the Vanir, other gods), Alfheim (Realm of Elves), Svartalfheim (Realm of Darwes), Helheim (Realm of those that died of old age or illness), Jotunheim (Realm of Giants), Niflheim (Realm of Snow and Mist) and Muspelheim (Realm of Fire).

This design also includes: an unnamed eagle on the top of the tree, its enemy under the tree is Níðhöggr, the dragon chewing on its roots, the World Serpent Jörmungandr which is so big, it surrounds the entire world and bites its own tail, the wolves Sköll and Hati each chasing the sun and the moon, when they successfully reach the and  swallow them, Ragnarök (the end of the world) will begin.

Not only the Vikings have the concept of the tree of life, but many other ancient world philosophies, myths and religions also share this concept. It is also called the tWorld Tree, the Sacred Tree, the Cosmic Tree and the Tree of Knowledge. It symbolizes the connection of all creation, the evolution of the universe, the cycle of life and death, and the connection between heaven and hell.
