​ÆTI​
(A LIFETIME)

Originally carved into the jawbone of a porpoise and dated to around 1000 A.D.⠀This calendar/pendant, commonly known as Worm’s Norwegian runic calendar, displays only the winter season. The other half, the summer season, was carved on the opposite side of the jawbone.⠀

Unfortunately, the summer season was never copied and the piece has since been lost.⠀

 

This paddle is my attempt to keep this last half from also fading into the annals of history.

WOOD   --  Red Cedar
CARVED  --  Without power tools (using                           a drawknife and spokeshaves)
DESIGN  --  Etched with Charcoal
SANDED  --  1,500 grit, by hand
FINISH   --   Varathane

I've put together a 35-page paper giving a brief overview of this topic!
