Myths are interwoven. The main imagery tells the narrative of the Earth-Diver. This is a creation myth where the world was all ocean and a giant bird dived down under the water to the ocean floor and collected mud to create land. Other bird mythologies including the legend of how eagles can renew their feathers and eyesight by flying towards the sun, plunging underwater thenrising like a phoenix. Bird-women surround Odysseus and the patterns from Viking artefacts are in the shape of a bird.
