Torben Ebbesen’s work contains frequent allusions to mythology and religion without for that reason representing ”literal” translation into the present of themes handed down to us by ancient civilisations.

What he prefers to do is to paraphrase certain motifs of mythical thinking, triad and trinity or the reference to water as life-giving element, a constantly recurring theme in Nordic mythology, These paraphrases are them selves part of an overarching conceptions which does not however become immediately apparent.
