The ancient Norwegian calendar stick was called a Primstav. It divided the year into winter and summer with lines for each day. The picture symbols vary, but reminded people of important dates: church holidays, or practical reminders on when to take sheep to the pastures or dig potatoes. This design series is inspired by some of these wonderful pictures of an earlier time.
