yes they have been passed down. They are a pre-Christian Viking alphabet deciphered by roman monks in Sweden over 500 yrs. ago its part of my heritage . Also I'm also pagan I follow a pre Christian religion of my Native American ancestors but I respect all religions and have spoken to many members of other religions on the subject.

a "pre-Christian" religion? ^^;
so what does it say on the altar here? is there a simple way to translate it, or would that take years of study? :(

its easy if you can trace it u can burn it literally. that table was done by hand but a lot of it tracing images just start practicing simple images and go slowly so the tool can do its job.ive taught a few artists the biggest problem is pushing too hard and moving too fast.this is not instant gratification

I would probably give the full link www.pagan.com/BobbyTaylor/ instead of pagan.com, as it took a bit of searching to find you on pagan.com

Very nice stuff there. You have an interesting mix of cultures in yourself and hence in your artwork. Very beautiful.

TO get a link, do the following:

1. Go to the website that you want to link to, and in the address bar at the top of the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or whatever browser you are using) you'll see an address such as

[link]

2. Click the address, and drag the mouse over the full length of text, and release the mouse so that the full length of the text has been selected.

3. Then copy that text by holding down CTRL btn on the keyboard & and then hitting the C button on the keyboard (while CTRL is still held down). It will look like nothing has happened.

4. Then you go to a comment box on deviantArt, facebook etc, and paste the text by holding down the holding down CTRL btn on keyboard & and then hitting the V button on the keyboard (while CTRL is still held down).

You'll then have the exact link in your comment, or profile description :D

If you're using an apple computer I think you use the Cmd button instead of the CTRL button, but still use C for copy, and V for paste as above.

If you already knew how to do this, sorry for being patronising :D

actually there is a serpent on the other side and all of this is done with a woodburner .I've just completed an etched alyar table that i;ve just posted the reason also 4 no blank is the same as yours and it would throw off the symmetry.the spacing was hard enough and ive never done another on since but i lean more toward native american art and what most consider fantasy,but thank you very much i do take orders to make peices for people at very reasonable prices

Oh you Lovely Man! You **didn't** put in the blank Rune! and does the Fire Eagle go on All three sides or do you have another animal on them? Unfortunately I do not have a jigsaw...::mutter mutter grumble snarl::

That is Lovely! Oh you Lovely Man, you **didn't** put in the blank Rune! It's my opinion it has no place in the Runes. And the Fire Eagle -- is it on all 3 sides?

cool same as me its categorized as being eclectic i've been welcomed by lots of religions but they al know i'm not a joiner or follower.That has caused problems for me in the past but i've always overcome it and my daughter is baptized greek orthodox bcause of its very basic religious beliefs and wise pagan leader constantine

Well, to be honest the most all encompasing answer to that question would be, yes, I am a bit on the pagan side of the fence. I have yet to find a specific genre of spirituality that could satisfy all of the uncertainty within my theories, a word more preferred would be 'alternative'. I've dabbled in everything during my search for answers to the questions I've had, to sum it up, I believe in catholocism to a point, but I feel more strongly that there is not necessarily one omnipotent being, but a genetic collective that resides in all of us. I believe all of us already know the answers to every possible question & outcome, that knowledge need only be 'remembered'.

I could go on to write an epic novel about my belief system.... generally, as spiritual as I am, I must be able to make sense of it from a scientific point of view.

However, I do believe the native americans had a pretty spot on view of things, and I still use what I've learned from their teachings 20 years ago in my present day thought process.

I know thats an eyeful, lol. Hope it answers your question. :)
