It’s a known fact, at the time of a strong Vikings state blossoming, their cultural traditions widely extended across Europe. The most Scandinavian ornamental styles – Borre and Elling, arisen at the later period, had come from so-called “animal style”. The animal images during the era of Vikings were more for frightening off and magic than for esthetic purposes. The animals were represented with the heads turned to the middle of a thing. Thus, the fearless Vikings reached the effect of protection against evil spirits, which they were afraid of.

In later tendencies in art there were less frightening figures, but the scheme of their arrangement remained. So, one can tell, that Elling and Borre style is a revival and continuation of old traditions. Although they acquire some Western European elements. Similar motives we can meet in the Russian, Hungarian, Ukrainian embroideries. However, the domination of a certain colour distinguishes cultural heritages of different people. Probably, this bluish, colour of snow and ice, causes more northern associations.
