17.mai fane!

By spotogspindel | May 5, 2009

Yesterday I finished the banner for the National day. This weekend I will bring it to the school who commisioned it, where they have a special wooden frame to carry it on/with. Anyway, here are pictures of the front and back:



The front has the background of Siggjo, our (almost volcanic) mountain, with the landscape of Moster in front of it. The main feature are the two viking-children. Every spring the school up until 2005 would have a viking-site during the historical play about Norway becoming a christian country over a thousand years ago, which started here in Moster. They would learn old techniques like spinning and black-smithing. The pattern in the background is from the old church and its bell. 

The other side shows a replica of an old viking-broach found in the area. It is very unique, and I though it would fit into the theme of what is typical of Moster: history, religion and culture.



Over er ein link til Moster skule si nyhende-side, der det står om den nye fana deira.

    First I machine-embroidered them in silk fabric on to the background, and then I painted over it. I used a mix of acrylic and fabric-paint.
