The Glass Mountain
Stories of glass mountains and sacred marraiges are known throughout the world. They reach as far as Indonesia and Polynesia. The spread of these stories can be related to the explorations of the North Sea People (our ancestors) circa 1500 BC.
There are many legends that are told along the coasts of the North Sea about a 'Glasberg' or 'Glastemplel' which sank beneath the waves. 'Glas' may be interpreted as meaning 'Amber.'
The story of the "Princess on the Glass Mountain," is very widespread with at least thirty variations.
In Scandinavia, Brunhilde, the valkyrie, sits on the Glass Mountain. She was placed there by Odin. Siegfried rides up on his horse to free her. Then they get married.
Many of the versions of the Glass Mountain talk about the Pole star.
The Indian legend of this mountain of Meru (The Shining Mountain) lies under the Pole star. On the Summit of Mt. Meru live the Gods and the Souls of thier ancestors (Asgard and Valhalla.)
This Amber Mountain was on an island near Heligoland (Atlantis) and sunk beneath the sea circa 1500 BC. This was the model for all 'Glass Mountain" legends that has been made into Fairy Tales throughout the world.
The Axe Cult: During the Bronze Age the Cult of the Sacred Axe spread throughout the world. Axes are found in graves, under standing stones, in dwelling sites, used mostly as ritual offerings. They were set in the earth upright with the cutting edge in the air.
May axes were found in Scandinavia, Germany and France. These Ritual Axes, were most likely offered to a pre-historic 'Axe God.' Many axes that were found were new and unused.
Many copper, miniature Axes were worn as pendants around the neck. Many rokc symbols were found depictingf an Axe God. The Axe God, carrying a large axe, is shown on a rock surface at Simrishamm, South Sweden.
The God of the Axe was especially honored during this pre-historic period. It was most certainly originated in the North.
Axes were made of flint, deer or reindeer antlers, bone and copper.
The first double-sided axe was found in Scandinavia. It is a genuine Nordic weapon which spread throughout Europe and England. The oldest flint Axe in the world was dated 1700 BC.
But who was this pre-historic "Axe God?" On one of the upright monoliths at Stonehenge, the shapes of four axe-heads are found. This shows that the Axe-God is related to the Pillar God. The Pillar God is Poseidon. In earliest Greece, Poseidon sometimes appears carrying a single and sometimes a double axe. Later on Poseidon traded his Axe for a Trident.
The origin of Frisian Laws comes from the Frisian God Fosite. He traveled over the stormy seas to the sacred land of Frisia. There he threw his axe on the shore and a spring gushed up. The place was called 'Axenshow,' or 'Axtemple.' The Frisians sat around the spring and the God Fosite taught them the Law.
Fosite was an Axe God. He was teacher of Law, the highest Judge, saver from danger at sea, waker of springs, all the same attributes given to Poseidon.
