THIS POST IS FUCKING ME UP
The Urnes style was the last phase of Scandinavian animal art during the second half of the 11th century and in the early 12th century.The preceding phases of Scandinavia’s Viking Age animal ornamentation are usually categorized as Oseberg style, Borre style, Jelling style, Mammen style and Ringerike style.
The Urnes style is named after the northern gate of the Urnes stave church in Norway, but most objects in the style arerunestones in Uppland, Sweden, which is why some scholars prefer to call it the Runestone style.
The style is characterized by slim and stylized animals that are interwoven into tight patterns. The animals heads are seen in profile, they have slender almond-shaped eyes and there are upwardly curled appendages on the noses and the necks.
There is no designated time for anything in your life. You don’t have to have your first kiss at any certain time, you don’t have to get married in your 20′s and you don’t have to do anything just because other people think it’s best. In fact, you will be much better off if you just do what your heart says. The day you stop caring what other people think is the day their opinions don’t mean anything, because you’re not there to give them weight.
I would love to meet every single one of them and give them a giant hug! ;3
