The Drakkar

new design:
Drakkar pillow, size: 60x44 cm, cord, cotton, felt, ribbon, thread
... a longship or so called dragon ship with blood red sails, up to 30 meters long and a with a dragon head on the bow of the ship is giving the Vikings' enemies the heebie-jeebies and is striking fear into their hearts.
When a Drakkar neares a coastline, the warriors often dress in bears skins, moving to the front of the ship and working themselves into a frenzy by shouting battle whoops - sometimes (often?) with the aid of hallucinogenic mushrooms... but that´s a different story
