Vitlycke Museum

I was expecting nothing. Decided to not to look to much, to not use google maps… just to have some surprises. Of course I knew the carvings, I am working with them almost every day, but the rest…

I wanted a surprise!

And I had it! First the museum. Just a building. Seeing from a distance.

Geometrical, simple. But also a bit so… sacral? Not a church more like a cult site. Simple, but also adequate. You know you are in a special place. You just know it. So… let’s get inside.

It is a hot day, so inside is also hot, sorry. But this gift shop! OMMI!!!

I can not go there now, must be an adult at least for a moment. I need to see the stuff! And it is… small but amazing.

Rich and surprising.

But also… just about bronze age.

IMG_0395

And carvings…

And…

IMG_0433

Here is a place… a large round bed, where you just lie down, and look up… and maybe my movie still has problems with sound, but look at it. Slowly… imagine this music plays all the time. Just all around.

Just look here is the link.

And now let’s go back in time…

IMG_0600

It was au naturell. You know, no smartphones, no electricity, no Facebook and only talking, fire, wilderness and sex.

IMG_0615

Oh yes.

IMG_0619

And this what I came for… everywhere. When you work with symbols, somehow they become so everywhere, so always and forever. Living without them is unreal. And people not noticing them… are weirdos!

IMG_0605

Or maybe I am weird, because they are so obvious to me. Such an obvious way to communicate. But the best thing is… this museum and this village, in fact they are real. They are like pumping up chronology of this site. You just feel here them… the ancestors. Those who lived here…

IMG_0655

Worked here. Lived and died here.

IMG_0656

Tried to survive.

IMG_0672

And had their believes. Simple, natural like everything what surrounded them.

IMG_0683

Oh yes… sexy, right?

IMG_0699

Or maybe just natural and normal? We do not like this word nowadays, but for them procreation, ability to create life was something…

IMG_0689

But mostly to survive.

IMG_0702

Yes, now people call it cruel. Forgetting about people using in fact everything from an animal they were haunting for hours, goodies they gathered…

IMG_0708

Calling them cruel is a stupidity…

IMG_0693

Read more, learn more. Be more homo sapiens sapiens. Yes we are with 2 sapienses. Or maybe we should be, but we are forgetting about brains? Maybe this is why movies about zombies are so popular?

More or less, this little one was with us for a long time. I bet for this creature we were weirdos.

PS. Of course I had fun in a gift shop! Just go there and have it too!!!
