Step 19: The base artwork

Picture of The base artwork
After laying out the edge, the border is laid out, which is a lindisorm, or a great serpent.   The main portion of the verse will be written in the central figure. Because of stone iregularities it may not be possible to complete the verse there so it will be continued as necessary onto the border. This style is seen on numerous runes in Sweden U-11 is a good example. It adds entire lines onto the border. Next following Oepirs style three circles are laid out. Another lindisorm or a drakkar (dragon) will be wound and knotted around these three circles.
