Petroglyph with Axes at Tanum, a Nordic Bronze Age site.

Written by

Supposed twin gods in battle-axe fight from the rock carvings at Tanum (around Tanumshede), a Nordic Bronze Age site. (the red colour is recent to make them carvings more visible).

Note that the body of the more or less human figures is a circle with a cross.
