- Lärbro Tängelgårda IV.
This amazing picture-stone (bildsten) is now displayed next to the Piraeus Lion at the National History Museum in Stockholm. It was found in 1864 by Per Arvid Säve in a field called "Fånggården" in Tängelgårda, Lärbro Parish on the island of Gotland. It was laying down with the pictured side down. It was the last of four picture-stones found in the village of Tängelgårda. This one is grouped from type C-E and dates to 700-900CE. The motif is thought to depict fellowship between warriors in Valhalla, a common motif depicted on picture-stones and this is possibly the best example this scene. Around the stone is a border done in a braided knot pattern. The material is limestone and is 1.02m high, 67-71cm wide and 15cm thick but the bottom 32cm is the part originally underground.
At the bottom left inside the squared off area possibly depicts a funerary feast. The two men could be holding items for processing alcohol. It seems that they are holding drinking horns turned upside down over a large jug. A similar scene is depicted on a picture-stone from the same location (Lärbro Tängelgårda I). The four men outside of the "alcohol-brewing room" are drinking out of their horns and feasting. The two men at the top middle seem to be clinking their horns together in a "cheers". Between these two men we see the same shaped jug turned upside down indicating it has been emptied. It is easy to make out the long sleeved robes that the men are wearing from the bottom three figures. The two men clinking their horns and the two "brewing" clearly have beards depicted but the other three do not so some believe they are women.
