Viking sign, Dannevirke (1 o 3)

Viking sign, Dannevirke

Dannevirke prides itself on its Scandinavian heritage, and images such as this Viking warrior are found throughout the town. This sign plays on warlike Viking stereotypes which have little connection with the 19th-century immigrants who came to clear the bush and establish farms.
