ABOUT THE ART

The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabets. It was a writing system used by Germanic tribes for the northwestern and Migration period dialects. Its inscriptions are found on artifacts (including jewelry, amulets, tools, weapons, and runestones) from the 2nd to 8th centuries. The earliest runic inscriptions date from around 150 AD. Historically, the runic alphabet is a derivation of the Old Italic scripts of antiquity, with the addition of some innovations.
There is some evidence that, in addition to being a writing system, runes historically served purposes of magic.
