    Symbol of Ukko?

    I see on a lot of Korpiklaani albums this image:



    Is this a symbol of Ukko? Is this symbol related? Anyone know anything about either two?



    I find this on the last image:

    Symbolic of the Supreme High God of Thunder. Size 5x5cms. The symbol is taken from the Lapland Noitarumpu drum, which has symbols of the gods, spirits and universe upon it.

    In mythology, Ukko is the most significent God. Sky, weather, crops, harvest are under his command. The Finnish word ukkonen for thunderstorm, is derived from his name. In the Kalevala he is called ylijumala (overgod), as he is the God of things above. He is equivalent of Odin in Norse pantheon, with properties of Thor. Here he is with his hammers!

    Natural materials - a cotton cord necklace, this handmade wooden pendant is made by only one person in Lapland. Crafted from prolific Finnish Birch and toasted over an open fire to create depth and character to the design.

    BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUELY DIFFERENT!

    The cord has an antique wax coating and can be made to any length due to an ingenius, yet simple knotting system that slips along the cord. So you can wear it as a choker or longer!
