Yggdrasil is the mighty ash tree whose trunk rises at the geographical center of the Norse spiritual cosmos. The rest of that cosmos, including the Nine Worlds, is positioned around it and held together by its branches and roots. These branches and roots connect the various parts of the cosmos to one another. This interconnectedness means that the well-being of the cosmos depends on the well-being of Yggdrasil. Disruption of this delicate symbiosis, signals the arrival of Ragnarok, and the destruction of the universe.
This tee shirt features “Yggdrasil, the Mundane Tree” from a plate included in the English translation of the Prose Edda by Oluf Olufsen Bagge (1847).
