Again and again

The history of art is for the most part a history of repetition. Artists receive the legacy of a previous generation and hand it onward to the next. One of the most enduring phenomena in Icelandic imagery, the bine, is a good example of this. Variations on the bine are repeated again & again in manuscript illuminations, carvings, metal works, embroidery and contemporary art.
