Riassunto: Research into the conceptual background of the Sagas told in 13th century Icelandic manuscripts has revealed a prehistoric image of creation marked in the land by Iceland's 9th century settlers with exquisite geometric and mathematical precision. PÚtur Halldˇrsson bases his research on the work of Einar Pßlsson, who discovered this ancient structure of thought. The principal reference points of the measure involved were the motions of the heavenly bodies and the cardinal directions. In fact, mans image of creation was a projection on the terrain of the Zodiac, anchored to prominent landmarks on the ground and the Sun's annual path around the Zodiac. It was at once sacred and a practical sun watch. The ancient approach is akin to a yardstick, which applies not only to the ancient sun watch in Iceland, PÚtur's research establishes that the like reference frame was used in antiquity in all parts of the globe. The ideas outlined in his books are the mature product of work and reflection of over 30 years of research bringing to light a "blueprint" up on which cultural areas were built. "I propose that such an image of creation initiated the famous Stoneage constructions in Europe and underlies most, if not all, cultivated areas of the world. Thus; Jelling, Denmark - St.Denis, France - the Vatican - Marathon - Marble Arch and The Tower of London, and Glastonbury, Avebury and Stonehenge in Somerset, and last but not least, Berg■ˇrshvoll, Iceland, are rooted on a grid, suggesting their location is according to a measured plan that predates them.
From the Author: A scholar by the name of Einar Palsson, discovered a huge Cosmic Image in the delta of south Iceland, by deciphering the symbols in the allegory of the most famous book of the Icelandic Saga heritage, Njalssaga. I have been developing it for the past 25 years. It may be said that in the allegory of this Icelandic skin book lies a blueprint of the basic layout of cultural areas of the world, from London to Athens or Iceland to Rome. The atributes of the Cosmic Image, whether in the deltas of South Iceland or in the sands of Egypt, are of course historical occurences, but most of all PORTIONS. The Cosmic Images were measured and paced with excquisit percision and aligned to the course of the Sun or the stars. I propose these atributes are amongst the oldest feats of Human kind and are the means of how first settlers of virgin land hallowed their habitats. It is very appropriate that this pagan ritual is discovered up here in Iceland, for it seems the last place in world history for it to have been implemented. After the discovery of Iceland and its Christianisation in the year 1000, all new discovered areas were dedicated to Christ of the new religion. Thus, measuring of the Cosmic Image in Iceland marked the end of a multi-millennial era in the evolutionary history of mankind's religious traditions. Further more it is appropriate that the discovery is developed by a visual artist like miself, for the Cosmic Image is based on proportions and visual symbolism of natures phenomenons.
