The Gotlandic picture stone monuments of the oldest type constitute a
material manifestation of a “concept” which basically deals with world
order and balance, from the single picture to the monument as a whole. This
concept is detectable in myths, sagas and material culture alike. Only by
paying more attention to the female agents of the sagas is it possible to
reach an understanding ofthe common content ofideas between the different
expressions. That the elements play an important role in the sagas is reflected
in the setting and execution of monuments and artifacts.
