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. 

I use the Icons as gifts for accomodation when I´m traveling.

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