There is the use of runes on the piece which are on both sides of the panel and are a quote from the 'Epic of Gilgamesh' again chosen to tie in with the origins of the wood itself.
"Who is there, my friend, can climb to the sky?
Only the gods dwell forever in sunlight.
As for man, his days are numbered,
Whatever he may do, Its but wind".
(Gilgamesh to Enkidu)
