A woman hiking in the Siskiyou Mountains of northernmost California came upon this seemingly old tree carving. It strikes me as being of an Odinist design.
"Old Man Tree"
While hiking in the Siskiyou Mountains, I came across this carving. The Old Man is a reminder of cultures from long ago and seems symbolic. Like a good grandfather, the wood has become a "nurse-log," and you can see the new life spouting around the edges.
The lower portion of the carving seems to be an elongated beard, while the upper portion looks a bit like a top-heavy helmet. If you stare at it for a few moments, it's easy to conclude that it has a very three-dimensional look to it.
