My Icons


My small apartment (or rather monk cell) is lying in the attic of The Rose Farm, a former retirement home in the middle of Rold Forest in Denmark.

Other parts of the attic are filled with secret doors, looking-glasses and wardrobes. So here you can meet Farm Nisser (English: Brownie) of all kinds, of course the Attic Nisse and Christmas Nisse. If you are very quiet they will tell you stories from The Old Denmark.

As I say in my pop culture file on The Lord of the Rings: “When you stand still you´ll meet Tom Bombadil!”

One of the secret doors of the attic is mine. It leads into my icon workshop, where I create my icons.

Currently I´m working on partly handmade Icons with six themes on wood from Beech and Linden tree, and a Sûnyatâ Sutra written on the back. The six classical themes are: The Virgin and Child, Christ the Merciful, The Transfiguration, The Crucifixion, The Resurrection, and Archangel Michael. 

In my article The Spiritual Practice of Icons, you can read more about my Icons and their mysticism.
