"Midvinter - Solhverv". Papercut. Meaning Midwinter - Solstice. Inspired by the nordic mythology and the fantastic "Solvognen" a Sun chart found in a bog, from the danish bronze age. The horses are the vikinghorse, the icelandic. They pull the Sun and the Moon over the heaven, and stars are beneath them. By Naja Abelsen, cut on solstice day 2013.
Solvhverv (meaning solstice) papercut by Naja Abelsen. In both the old greenlandic and the old norse mythology the sun is female. that seems more right to me than other cultures version of a male sun!
