Recent Works: Leidungr Solhjul
This work is a kind of collaboration with Leidungr, a swedish neofolk ambient project formed 2010.
If you are into obscure folk stuff you should definitely check them out - I am sure that their debut album will be one of the best releases in 2011, certainly the best non-metal release. So far you can only check out their Youtube channel where you find some great examples of their musical art. Leidungr's YouTube channel
This design is thought to become a part of their logo - that's the reason I put it into the designs and interfaces section.
Maybe some of you might think that this seems familiar and you are right. The design is based on a rather bad black and white picture I got from Leidungr, showing this sunwheel in an inappropriate angle. So my job was partly reconstruction and inventing the parts that weren't visible in the foto to get it into a frontal position.
We don't know the exact origin of the reference picture or the wooden sunwheel depicted so if anyone knows it - do not hesitate to let me know ;)
However I assume it could be of german origin probably from the first half of the last century
