    Hermannsdenkmal in Germany (reminder of the Germanic victory over the Romans in 9 A.D.)







    Loreley:

    "According to the German legend of the Loreley, there was once a beautiful blonde haired young maiden, named Loreley, who threw herself headlong into the Rhine river in despair over a faithless lover. After dead, she then became a siren, luring shipmen to their fates with her hypnotizing voice. The echoing heard today is said to be Loreley. The Loreley rock is the rock where the ships of the enchanted fishermen crash and sink along with their crew."


    Rock of Loreley with her statue on the top:

    I'm sure the ancient Heathens had statues or at least god-poles like the Irminsul, but as they would've been made out of wood so i'm equally sure that during or after Christianisation these statues would have been burnt as idols. Any ones that escaped the flames would be the ones lost or buried and so the moist Northern European would result in the majority of these rotting.

    Are there any modern day Heathens who have made modern statues or god-poles in the abstract Germanic style? If so do you have pictures?
    Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is an illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and I am content.

    I'm not sure if it would count as a temple but near where I live there's an area called 'Danes Dyke', which is where the Danish Vikings landed before founding Flamborough.
    Perhaps one could erect some form of small shrine there?
