Yggdrasil is the Nordic name for The Tree of Life in Nordic mythology. According to Nordic mythology, Yggdrasil is the tree connecting all worlds. It is considered as holy and the gods go to Yggdrasil to assemble their things. The wisdom and fate of all men float in the waters of the tree.
Continuing as late as the 19th century, warden trees were venerated in areas of Scandinavia. They were considered to be guardians and bringers of luck and offerings were sometimes given to them.
There is said to be a sacred tree in Tingvellir in Iceland and a huge tree standing in Uppsala in Sweden. Both are described as remaining green throughout summer and winter and no one knows what types of trees they are.
The artwork Yggdrasil by Augusta Atla is a prayer for luck, protection, vitality, love, growth and health.
