Bibendum
This superb carvings - more than 350 scenes spread over several sites (Vitlycke, Aspeberget, Litlseby, Fossum) - were perhaps made in ochre rouge; furthermore some have been repainted so that they can be seen more easily. Their meaning remains unknown, although there are recognisable images such as animals, humans (sketches of a woman with long hair, a man distinguishable by his penis) and boats which bear a strange resemblance to Viking langskips. These figures could illustrate fertility rites and work in the fields.
