Trolls in the Okanagan and Iceland

It’s nice to meet old friends. Here’s an Icelandic troll I found at dawn on Easter two years ago.


Here’s the Okanagan version I found on Kalamalka Lake four days ago.P1660646

 

Here is his neighbour’s head.

The skulls and eye holes, and the troll lurking behind water, seem to be a theme. If you want to read the collective unconscious, just look at the world. We are walking through our minds.

  1. Is it my imagination, or do the Icelandic trolls look more troll-ish than the BC ones? There is a sense of them being even more ancient and knowing.
