From barrow of Gorm and Thyra, Jutland.
Worsaae, “Industrial Arts of Denmark.”
This was next to the engraving of the silver cup in the book.
Found in the huge double barrow in which the heathen king Gorm the Old, founder of the Danish monarchy (c. 900-936), and his Christian wife Thyra, were buried side by side at Jelling at Jutland. The figure is of wood; it represents Christ, but is surrounded by the triskele, the old symbol of Woden.
If you can see why this is a figure of Christ and not of Woden you’re doing better than I am!
