Their principal advantage was the quality of their elegant, stable and shallow craft, allowing them to land outside ports. Added to this, was their extreme mobility on sea and land where the Vikings transformed themselves into knights. In Scandinavian art, often anoymous, the artisan’s skills cannot be distinguished from the artist’s research. In the Baltic island of Goland, on high limestone or sandstone stela. you can see engravings of rose windows, spirals, scenes inspired of funerary symbolism, domestic scenes, battles and great ships driving into the beyond.
