Within the walls of the Thing House, the frieze paintings come alive in the light of the fire. The beautifully decorated murals tell the exciting story of the founding of Denmark’s oldest town, Ribe.
The paint for these beautiful images has been made of earth colors. Even the precious ultramarine blue, has chosen because it’s an historically accurate color pigment: a finely ground powder of precious stone lapis lazuli.
The style in which the pictures are painted is from the Viking Age, and the characters to the story are drawn from a variety of future rune stone carvings and tapestries.
