Rune stones are stones with runic inscriptions dating from the early Middle Ages but are found to have been used most prominently during the Viking Age.
Rune stones were often set up to commemorate the dead, and many of Scandinavia’s surviving rune stones served as memorials for people who had died far from home.
When the stones were carved, the runic letters were also painted, most commonly red (based on archaeological analysis), in order to be easily visible.

An image stone is an ornate slab of stone, usually limestone, which was raised in Germanic Iron Age or Viking Age Scandinavia, and in the greatest number on Gotland.
Lacking textual explanations, the image stones are consequently difficult to interpret.
A comparable tradition is found on the Isle of Man where high funeral crosses of stone were richly ornamented with the same teeming world of warriors and Norse gods as the image stones of Gotland.

This paper examines images that had grown up specifically around the lute in early modern England, and the way in which they were used by writers and artists (obviously, this ignores the use of the instrument in religious contexts, and concentrates only on secular representations).
This dangerous image of the lute did not disappear as the century progressed, and is still present in works like the frontispiece of Adrianus Poirter's 1670 Lady World, an allegorical depiction of women's deceit and manipulation of the physical world in which the lute is the dominant symbol.
A broken lute string is a lesser image that can also represent the destruction of marital harmony (it may appear in a brothel scene to suggest that the man is married), but is also used to indicate a state of unease between two parties who may not not necessarily be amorously involved.

Freyr himself is the holy father of the Ynglings, whose image is recognised by his erect phallus, whereas Freyja never appears as a holy mother of any line (either human or godly).
Archaeological/iconographic sources are often useful in sorting genuine belief from antiquarian fancy: for instance, the Alskog Tjängvide and Ardre VIII picture stones (Gotland, 8th century) show us that the belief in Óðinn's eight-legged horse was well and truly established at least by the beginning of the Viking Age.
