Pictish Facial Tattoo
§ 84. Every day they must wash their faces and heads and this they do in the dirtiest and filthiest fashion possible: to wit, every morning a girl servant brings a great basin of water; she offers this to her master and he washes his hands and face and his hair — he washes it and combs it out with a comb in the water; then he blows his nose and spits into the basin. When he has finished, the servant carries the basin to the next person, who does likewise. She carries the basin thus to all the household in turn, and each blows his nose, spits, and washes his face and hair in it.

Decoding The Logo
"Our task was to create a logo that would show the spirit of the Vikings’ culture in its several main elements. In one symbol we needed to capture the multiple dimension of the nation. At the same time in the teaser we had to focus on how all the elements in logo are brought to life and coexist in Vikings’ everyday life."
