The belt was left to Nordiska Museum in Stockholm in 1895. Before that the belt has been in the noid, shaman family for generations.I wrote to the museum and asked for permission to study the belt. The result is that I started to engrave this old pattern on my own handicraft. I showed it for the first time in Ajjte museum in Jokkmokk at the wintermarket 2010. I held a seminari at the museum and presents this unique find to the audience. It is like finding a new pyramid in the desert.
I make Lappish, Sami knives, boxes, jewellery and of course I also make the bag Daaskoe of antler but without the words wich I know have special spiritual importance and belongs to the original nåjd/shaman daaskoe.
My wife and I received a culture prize in Vilhelmina 2009 for our work and the money we received from that prize we have used to make a textile collection with this old pattern on. It is a blanket, a towel and a tablecloth. We cooperate with one linenweavery and one woolweavery that help us weaving the products.
Something so powerful as a noids, shamans belongings have been inspiration for my handicraft decoration and our textiles.
