    Norse Dragon Temple

    Some Norwegian stave churches such as Lom of 12th cent., have a dragon-head on each corner of the steeple. General opinion denies that these represent pagan tradition. Does anyone know of this 4-square design of dragons in other art-forms?

    I've never heard that "General opinion denies that these represent pagan tradition", just look at the pagan longships; they had dragon heads on their bows & sterns.

    Norse tradition were banned from Norway in 1945,
    and on most houses with dragonheads, they were simply sawed off.

    This was a political act, against nationalism, and nationalromatics, as Nasjonal Samling, and the nationalist just had lost the war.

    Any symbols related to our norse heritage was banned and "nazified".

    In the 60`s it slowly began to be acceptable again,

    when hippies and alternatives started to dig in the folkish heritage.

    But you find dragonornamentics on all kinds of items and tool, also other animals like gryphons.
