viking norse longboat table heading for scotland - wildetect style

being  fourth and fifth generation african settlers - and having the depth of african cultures and influence wash through ones veins whilst exploring ones roots makes life exciting.

so to eventually stand infront of an ancient viking longboat, whilst in norway,  was like standing in front of an incredible spaceship. a vehicle that represented an expanding of borders, of misty shores and far off beaches, of danger and adventure beyond the horizon - beyond the skyline.
so over the many years the viking longboat table design evolved from pure fish ribs to the art piece it is now.  it seems the table might just make its way to the far off misty shores of Scotland - the concept created in the north , hewn out the fires of africa,  to be sent back north. is a fitting journey for a table, whos journey is only beginning.
