Legends and myths about the origin of wood. Stories and legends about trees. The world tree in the mythology of Mesopotamia

If people understood the language of trees, how many stories a maple familiar from childhood could tell about itself. He knocks on the window, waving branches and green palms, as if calling: “Talk to me.” It feels like he understands everything about what is in the soul of a person, as the most dear, close friend. It's impossible not to love him. It is no coincidence that the poet Sergei Yesenin dedicated his innermost, lyrical poems to him:

“I won't be back soon!
Long sing and ring the blizzard.
Guards blue Russia
Old maple on one leg.
And I know there is joy in it
To those who kiss the leaves of the rain,
Because that old maple tree
Its head looks like me

And not only poets were fascinated and inspired by maple, many songs, fairy tales and ancient legends.

Maple legends and tale

Legend of the Singing Maple

The evil witch-stepmother cursed her unloved son and turned him into a Maple tree. Maple grew up very beautiful, he understood everything as a person, remaining kind and loving. Once wandering musicians passed by the grove and stopped under a maple tree for a halt. The musicians liked the tree very much, and they made a violin from the branch. The violin sang and cried with the voice of a man, about life and love, touching and exciting the hearts of people.

By the way, Sadko's harp was also made of maple. Also, in ancient legends and myths, there is a mention that the maple is the favorite tree of the Slavic god Lel, he spent most of the time under the maple.
Maple is popularly called a melodious tree, since ancient times musical instruments have been made from it - violins, domras, guitars, psaltery.
« Stretch the ringing string on the dry branch of the wedge-tree, sing me your daring song... "- a frequent motif of old legends.

Maple is beautiful at any time of the year…

Fantastically beautiful maples - openwork, lush crown, carved leaves, slender, majestic camp.

Spring , in late April and May, delicate, yellow-green inflorescences appear on the branches, similar to panicles, emitting a pleasant aroma that attracts bees. Maple blossoms last two to three weeks, and then young maple leaves bloom.

Summer maple is just as gorgeous in all its glory.
Its crown resembles a lacy, airy, green cloud of carved maple leaves rustling in the wind, creating a wonderful play of light and shadow. If you look closely, you can see that the maple leaves are very reminiscent of the open palm of a person, with five fingers, with veins, like the lines of fate.

A autumn maples glow with all shades of yellow, orange, crimson, purple colors. The trees, as if engulfed in a golden flame, fascinate with magical beauty. And in September, maple seeds ripen, similar to small helicopters or dragonflies. Helicopters fly in the heavenly heights, like letters sent by an invisible postman, and somewhere in the glades they find shelter in order to grow into a new maple tree in the spring.

Our ancestors endowed all trees with magical properties, including maple.

The Slavic god Klenich was called the spirit of the maple...
There is an ancient belief that there is a strong connection between a person and a maple, and that a tree feels the soul and experiences of a person.
The five-pointed maple leaves resemble the outstretched five fingers of a human hand; in addition, the five ends of the maple leaf symbolize the five senses of man.
For a long time people believed that as long as a person is alive and well, then the maple grows and turns green. And if a person fell ill or experienced adversity, then the maple tree by the window would dry out from melancholy.
In the legends of the Slavs, maple is a tree into which a person has been turned in past lives. For this reason, maple wood could not be used for firewood. According to an old tradition, when a house was built, a couple of maple trees were planted on its southern side.
In ancient Slavic magic, maple is considered a tree of patience, spiritual strength, balance, tranquility, giving peace, love and peace. If you approach the maple in moments of unrest and ask for help, then it will give protection in all matters, self-confidence. Maple is a very kind and affectionate tree, it is able to light blue, hug and dispel doubts and sorrows.

“I will close his trail with a maple leaf - no one else will like him. If my dear hears, then the maple outside the window will not wither. Stretch a ringing string on a dry branch of a maple tree, sing your daring song to me. But my dear does not sing his song, he builds a light-winged maple ship to go to unknown lands, to play with unspent power. I will again wait, grieve, bow to the maple, so that my dear will return, so that the maple leaf will turn green again with a wide, friendly ... "

With melted snow, water rises from the roots, along the trunk to the branches, and maple sap flows under the bark of the tree, very tasty and sweet, sugar was evaporated from it in the old days .. In addition to humans, forest birds and animals appreciated maple sap. The woodpecker, in order to get to the sweet treat, makes a small hole with its beak, and the squirrel simply bites through the bark.

Maple also has popular names - Yavor, Atsarn, Klenovina, Klinina.0006 Ay, my son, you are my little lark »
In the rituals of the holidays Trinity, Green Christmas time, Ivan Kupala used maple branches in the same way as birch branches. In Polissya, the Saturday before the Trinity was called “maple Saturday”. On a holiday, the house was decorated with maple branches, and a maple tree was placed at the door. It was believed that the souls of native ancestors are hiding in maple branches.

In some villages, a ritual was prepared for the holiday “ Bush driving ". In the forest, maple branches were broken and tied with a thread. The girls dressed up “in the bush”, decorated themselves with herbs and flowers, and surrounded by singing friends walked around the village several times, bowing to each house. Trinity songs were called “on the bush”. Then the participants of the ceremony went to the field, or to the river bank, where they wove wreaths, jumped over the fire, divined love, cast spells for health, happiness and protection from sorcerers.
Also in the old days there was a folk rite "Threading through the maple". The baby was carried through the branches of the maple, so that his life was long and happy. The maple tree was considered by the people to give longevity.

"How I want to write about the green forest,
About the old, old, old maple tree. 0003 It grows near an old gazebo.

Nature is man's friend

Man and nature are inextricably linked. Poets and musicians are inspired by nature, and traditional healers with its help relieve all ailments. Traditional medicine has helped people since ancient times. Tinctures from various herbs and roots sometimes work wonders in our days. And, of course, trees occupy a separate important niche in folk medicine.


There is even a science dedicated to the study of the healing properties of trees. This is a science called dendrotherapy. Many people do not even realize that trees are valuable not only for their bark and leaves, but also for their energy, which feeds all life around. In order to feel it, one has only to touch the trunk. Trees normalize the work of the heart, relieve stress and fatigue from the body, accelerate metabolic processes in the body. After all, each tree is surrounded by its own individual biofield, which can synthesize only certain diseases and emotions. No wonder there is a proverb "in a birch forest - have fun, in a pine forest - pray, in a spruce forest - strangle yourself." This suggests that one tree absorbs sadness and longing, while the other, on the contrary, takes away positive emotions.

How do trees affect a person's well-being?

In ancient times, healing trees were endowed with a soul and various life-giving qualities. Each tree has its own character and purpose. So, for example, oak - is considered a symbol of longevity. Walking through the oak forest, you can normalize blood pressure, calm the nervous system and recharge with vital energy. But it is important to know that such walks are not suitable for seriously ill people. But birch, on the contrary, treats weak and very sick people. No wonder even brooms in the bath are most often made of birch. Because birch contributes to the recovery of the soul and body. Pine also relieves stress and removes all anxiety and resentment. And walks through pine groves relieve cough and runny nose. The apple tree is considered a female tree. This tree, with the help of its healing properties, is able to awaken female power at almost any age. Elm is a male tree that endows the representatives of the stronger sex with sensuality and truly masculine character traits. Chestnut treats rheumatic diseases, and also relieves insomnia and unreasonable fears. Poplar is also referred to as healing trees. It is believed that it takes away negative energy from the environment. But it has also been found that with frequent contact of a person with poplar, the former begins to suffer from headaches. Larch is a tree of optimism. After all, with direct contact with her, a person’s mood rises and a desire to move forward towards the future appears. Spruce gives you the opportunity to control your emotions. This can be checked by holding a spruce cone in your hands for several minutes. After this procedure, the body will be freed from negative energy. Separately, you need to talk about aspen. This healer tree is a kind of "vampire". It most strongly takes energy not only from people, but also from bacteria and various harmful organisms. Aspen wood does not rot and is not afraid of moisture. Therefore, it is from aspen that piers and boats are made. And in ancient times, even church domes were made of aspen. Also, aspen twigs were placed under the pillows of children in order to protect them from damage and the evil eye. And the aspen towel relieves pain in the back and joints. In some cases, even various tumors are treated with the help of aspen bark. There is a belief that the aspen drives away all evil spirits, and the aspen stake in the heart kills even vampires. And for those who do not believe in vampires, ordinary aspen charms are made to get rid of the human evil eye.

How to determine the presence of medicinal properties in a tree?

Basically, experts look at the depth of the roots of a tree. The deeper the roots, the more healing powers this tree has. So, for example, miraculous medicinal licorice roots go into the ground to a depth of 5 meters, oak 10 meters, and camel thorn 20 meters. That is why a camel that eats camel thorn lives twice as long as our cow. This means that the longer a plant (including a tree) grows, the more useful properties it accumulates in itself.

Legends about trees

Every nation will certainly have several legends about trees. All of them are quite interesting and instructive. In these legends, most often the tree appears as an animated creature capable of talking. Here is a Danish legend that explains the fact that in autumn all the trees shed their greenery, while spruce and pine remain invariably green.

“Once a flock of birds flew to warmer climes. One of the birds fell behind the flock because its wing was broken. The wounded bird fluttered from tree to tree, seeking shelter from the cold. The birch, swaying in the wind, did not pay attention to the pleas of the bird. The willow did the same, grieving about some secret grief of its own, bending over the stream. And the proud oak, looking up, did not descend to a small bird at its foot. At last the bird reached the spruce tree, which graciously received it. A pine tree stretched out its branches nearby to better shelter the bird from the approaching cold, and a juniper offered the bird a handful of its berries. The forest spirit became angry with the proud trees and made them pay for their cruelty. When the wind blew after the first frosts, it tore off all their leaves from the birch, willow and oak. Since then, they are always doomed to suffer from winter frosts, while the merciful spruce, pine and juniper forever retain their green decoration.

There once was a forest fairy. Where she appeared, nature came to life, trees raised dried branches, amazing flowers bloomed. People and animals came to her for healing, and she refused to help anyone. The fairy fell in love with the young shepherd. He used to fly to the meadow where he grazes the flock, hide in the crown of a tree and listen to him play the pipe ... Somehow a forest fairy came out to the shepherd. He saw her and fell in love without memory. They began to meet every day, and the fairy shepherd endowed with the gift of healing. She revealed to him the secrets of herbs and flowers, trees and the world of stone.

The shepherd began to treat people. And he took a lot of money for it. He stopped herding the herd, got rich. Less and less often he comes to the forest clearing, where the fairy is waiting for him. And then he stopped coming at all. A fairy sits in the crown of a tree, waiting for her shepherd. Tears flow from her eyes, the more they flow, the smaller she becomes. So all the tears came out. And where these tears fell, daisies grew there. They stand, pull their hands-stalks to the sun, drop petals-teardrops: they love - they don’t love, they will come - they won’t come. They feel tears of human pain and help everyone who asks for help with a pure soul.

Meanwhile, the shepherd was losing strength with every tear that the forest fairy had given him. And the day came when all his strength was gone, and his luck left him. People turned away from him. And then the shepherd remembered his fairy. He came to the meadow where they met, lo and behold, the whole field was strewn with daisies. He began to call the forest fairy, but there was only silence all around, only daisies pulled their heads towards him, as if fawning over him. He waved his hand at everything and went back to his cows.

A very touching, and at the same time, sad story tells us about where daisies came from on Earth. Long ago, in a distant village, there lived a girl named Maria. She was as beautiful as the morning dawn, as gentle as a breath of wind and slender as a birch. She had light blond hair and blue eyes, and her skin seemed to radiate a mother-of-pearl glow. This girl was madly in love with a guy named Roman from a neighboring village. Her feelings were mutual, and the young people practically never parted. Every day they walked through the forests, picked berries, mushrooms, flowers.

One day Roman had a dream that an old man in some unknown country presented him with a hitherto unknown flower - with a bright yellow core and white elongated petals around. When Roman woke up from his sleep, he saw that this flower really lay on his bed. He liked it so much that he immediately gave it to his beloved. Tenderness emanated from the flower and the girl was delighted with such an unusual gift and decided to call it an affectionate name - Chamomile. She had never seen such a simple yet delicate flower before. The girl felt sad that not all lovers can enjoy the beauty of chamomile, and she asked Roman to collect a whole bouquet of these amazing flowers. Roman could not refuse his beloved and the next day he hit the road. For a long time he wandered the expanses of the Earth and, finally, at the end of the world, he found the kingdom of dreams. His ruler agreed to give his girlfriend a whole field of daisies only if Roman would remain in his possession forever. The young man was ready for anything for the sake of his beloved, and he remained forever in the land of dreams. The girl had been waiting for Roman's return for several years, but he still did not knock on her door. And, when one morning, she saw a chamomile field near her house, she realized that her love was alive ... So people got a chamomile and fell in love with these flowers for their simplicity and tenderness, and lovers began to guess at them: "Does she love - does not love?"

Chamomile has always been used for divination. In order to find out the answer to the question that haunted, taking a chamomile in your right hand, and cutting off the petals with your left hand, you had to say "yes", "no", "it will come true", "it will not come true" until you pick the last one petal, which will be the answer.

There is a well-known counting rhyme: "loves, does not love, spit, kiss, press to heart, send to hell, loves sincerely, scoffs, waits for a meeting, mocks..." Guess, love and be loved. And believe the chamomile, because it will always confirm that ... loves!

Long ago, a young and very ambitious king ruled over the northern kingdom. He had a huge strong army, rich lands and loyal people, but there was no love. And then he learned that a wise old king lives far in the south, he has a daughter - the most beautiful girl on Earth. And the young king wanted this girl for his wife, as he was used to choosing all the best. But he knew that the old king did not want to give his daughter in marriage, she was destined to remain a virgin while her father was alive. And then the young king wished death to the sage.
In those days, legends about a magical tree of desires circulated around the world. They said that the tree fulfills any desire that comes from a pure heart and "for the good." But the young king did not believe that his desire would bring trouble, that the death of a wise king could not bring happiness, he went to the great tree
The distant desert became the first obstacle on his way. In his golden armor, he simply drowned in quicksand. The king understood to move on. You need to leave all your gold here, forget about your regalia and wealth. And so he did.
Our hero walked during the day, it was night, and he had very little strength left, so his hunger was intolerable. And he entered the garden. The garden was full of tall trees of extraordinary beauty, with beautiful fruits hanging from them. A thorny nondescript shrub with small berries crept along the ground. The king reached out to the wonderful fruits, tasted them and became ill. He fell to the ground and sees how the ant carries small berries. The king ate that berry and revived, strength and faith in success came to him. So he realized that not the best that is beautiful.
Our hero went further and wandered into a dense forest. And a huge wolf came out to meet him. The king took a thicker stick and threw it at the wolf, he did not move, but another wolf appeared next to him. The king threw logs and stones at them until his strength ran out. And the wolves only got bigger. And then the king realized that strength is not in the muscles and not in accuracy, but in the spirit. He gathered in himself all his courage, all his intentions and pride, and looked into the eyes of the wolves. The wolves of the royal gaze were frightened and fled.
The king came to the village, he was fed and drunk there, and the path to the great tree was shown. Yes, they just reminded that thoughts should be good, and consciousness should be pure. And the king went to the appointed lake and saw from afar a young girl that was bathing there. Her figure was divinely thin, curly red hair fell below the waist, and her voice sounded like the clearest stream. And love arose between them as lightning fast as a fire ignites. They came by the hand to the great tree of desires and wished to be together until the end of their days and give birth to a strong son. And the tree bowed its fragrant branches in flowers over them and fulfilled their wish.

. Sauerkraut will not go bad if you put an aspen branch in it. Many beliefs are associated with the aspen among the people and will accept the Christian time, from which it follows that it is a cursed tree; not without reason, according to legend, Judas hanged himself on an aspen. But our remarkable folklorist S.V. Maximov writes something completely different on this score: “Aspen, or trembling poplar, unlike other trees, has some peculiarity in the structure of the leaf petiole. The leaf petiole is long, often longer than the blade, and is widely flattened ... This is the reason that from the slightest breeze the leaf begins to tremble. This is how the botanists explain this phenomenon. The people repeat their own, blindly believing the traditions of their ancestors and not making inquiries about whether this species from the willow subfamily grows in the Holy Land ... The people stubbornly believe that on this tree Judas the traitor hanged himself. Since then, the aspen, with all its descendants, has been unjustly cursed in all countries of the world. At the same time, they forgot that it brings the greatest benefit to mankind, especially our Russian, in comparison with other tree species. In the villages, all household utensils from it, and in the cities - even the paper on which these lines are printed. In addition, aspen is the best material for arcs. And she really has the ability to preserve cabbage - thanks to the peculiarities of her bark.

2. It is a sin to eat apples before the Apple Savior. It is based on the fact that in the villages before August (that is, before the Savior), not all apples have time to ripen; children, having eaten green apples, then suffer from indigestion. To avoid temptation, they are told about this ban.

3. Many signs and beliefs are associated with mountain ash - both because of the red color of the berries, similar to blood, and because its fruits are used in home medicine. In particular, rowan kvass is both a laxative and an anti-inflammatory agent; it is given at high temperatures as an antipyretic, etc. A plentiful harvest of berries on mountain ash portends a long cold winter. Some researchers believe that in this way nature itself takes care of food for birds for the winter. To cut down a rowan-nurse, especially near your own house, is to deprive yourself of natural medicine for the winter and leave birds without food. The ban on berries after using the rowan rod is an "apology" to the tree for the harm done.

4. If you see a lilac flower with five petals, eat it. This is good luck. - It is believed that happiness is as rare as a flower with five petals. Therefore, having become its full owner (having eaten), a person secures luck for himself. By the way, you can compare this with the discovery of a "chicken god" - a stone with a hole in the middle - on the sea coast. The finder is considered lucky and must make a wish that will surely come true. The author of these lines within one day, to the envy of vacationers in Koktebel, accidentally discovered two dozen such stones with holes. But the wish made - to buy a ticket for the Moscow train - came true only two days later.

5. Large harvest of mountain ash - for a long and frosty winter. Mountain ash in the forest is fruitful - by a rainy autumn, if not - to a dry one. - The sign is time-tested and captures the regulatory functions of nature. As already mentioned, before a long frosty winter, mountain ash bears more fruit than usual, because without its berries, birds will not be able to survive until spring. The question is how nature maintains this regularity. But the sign itself is true, like the second of those given here.

6. Birch, planted next to the house, scares away evil and protects from lightning. - Any tall tree protects from lightning, since it serves as a natural lightning rod (lightning arrester). That is why in the field during a thunderstorm you cannot hide from the rain under a tree: being the only towering object, it will first of all become a victim of lightning. As for the peculiarity of the birch to scare away evil, this is due to its white color and legends. Once a birch sheltered the Mother of God and Jesus from bad weather, and another time it hid Holy Friday in its branches from evil spirits, which is why it enjoys the patronage of all three. One of the explanations may lie in the legend that on the Trinity the souls of deceased relatives move into the birch branches, who continue to help the survivors. In general, birch is the most beloved tree by the Slavs. It was included in various magical rites of pre-Christian times. Birch bark served as "paper": birch bark scrolls were preserved in Novgorod and other lands until the 20th century, testifying to the literacy of the ancient Rus (even before the adoption of Christianity).

7. If you give birch sap to a patient on Maxim, he will recover. - Day of Maxim and Jason (Jasson) - April 28 old style - May 11 new. On this day, birch sap is usually collected. The most healing is the juice from the upper part of the trunk. The extraction of juice was furnished with magical rites and strictly regulated so as not to damage the tree. The meaning of the sign is that it is on this day - "on Maxim" - that birch sap has the greatest healing properties.

8. If you go on a journey with an elder staff, then neither evil people nor wild animals will be afraid. - Such an attitude towards elderberry was recorded by researchers not only in Russia, but also in England, Germany, Scotland and other countries. This is based on its healing properties and beneficial smell. An infusion of elderberry flowers cures fever. An elderberry branch is carried with them from the evil eye. Naturally, these features are transferred to the staff, which can also physically protect the traveler. Let us recall that Pushkin went on distant lonely walks around the neighborhood of Mikhailovsky, then still rich in forests, always with a staff - perhaps just an elder one, for he knew well the signs of the people.

9. You can’t cut a century-old spruce - to trouble. - The people believe that the old, centuries-old spruce is the dwelling of the goblin. If it is cut down, then the goblin will begin to take revenge by all means available to him, up to and including arson. And he will certainly start knocking him off the road in the forest, where he is the owner.

10 Linden dried up in the garden - for worse. - The explanation here is the same as in the case of mountain ash and other plants that are a natural pharmacy. Linden cures colds and other diseases, provides honey collection, in the old days it also shoed (bast shoes made of lime bast), and served as raw material for wooden handicrafts. Losing a linden tree in your garden is really a bad thing.

11. He who loves almonds loves his wife too. - This observation can be attributed to any nuts (including forest nuts and walnuts). All of them are recommended for men as food. have a positive effect on the sexual function of the body. Recipes, both ancient and modern, there are a great many. In addition, nuts are well satiated, and vegetarians successfully replace them (as well as beans) with meat.

12. In order to protect newlyweds from spoilage, pieces of alder bark are placed in their pockets. - Alder has become a magical amulet because of the red color of the bark, which is associated with blood. Like everything bright, the red bark attracts the eye and, accordingly, protects from the evil eye. Even if the bark is hidden in a pocket, a person has confidence that he will not be jinxed. It is believed that bathing in the river, washing the roots of the alder, protects against diseases, and its branches, stuck along the edges of the field, protect against hail.

13. Whoever carries a double nut with him will be rich. - At the heart of the belief is the quantitative principle and the belief that an empty nut - to hunger, and a full one - to prosperity. Especially - a walnut-double.

14. You can get rid of a vampire either by piercing him in the chest with an aspen stake, or by burning him on an aspen fire. - The roots of the belief lie in the attitude to the aspen as to the tree on which Judas hanged himself. It is believed that if this tree coped with the betrayer of Jesus, then it will certainly cope with the ghoul. The ghoul, who had taken possession of a man, was blamed for the suicide of this unfortunate man. Over time, the barbarian custom of reprisals against the "vampire" changed: they began to put an aspen cross in the coffin of the deceased by an unnatural death or erect an aspen cross on the grave. From the same row - a sign that a dead snake must be hung on an aspen, otherwise it will come to life and bite. It is possible that the basis of the connection in the consciousness of aspen and snake is as follows: aspen bark was used as an antidote for snake bites; having spoken the bark, it was applied to the bite site. A fire made of aspen wood is considered the most effective means of combating evil spirits, hence the proverb: let it burn on an aspen tree!

15. It is possible to cure a patient of fever by hiding his hair and nails in an aspen stump. In order for the child to outgrow his illness, his hair and nails must be hidden in the trunk of an aspen at the level of the child's growth. When the aspen grows up, it will carry away the disease. If a sick person sits on a fresh aspen stump, the stump will take away his illness. When a child has insomnia, you need to put a sprig of aspen in his cradle. - At the heart of these and many other beliefs is the attitude to the aspen as a talisman. At the same time, it was forbidden to plant it near the house, to heat the stove with firewood unnecessarily (although it has been noted that the smoke of this firewood destroys soot in the stove) and to use it in construction.

Ornamented World Tree

Speaking of the Ornamented World Tree, by tradition, we first of all turn to authoritative works that Lyubov Mikhailovna Butkevich left us as a legacy. We take her work as a basis.

Difficult to understand academic language Ornament Club translates into standard common human speech.

What is the World Tree?

In the prefaces of her books, Mrs. Butkevich repeatedly wrote: in order to understand the nature of the ornament, you need to look at the world through the eyes of our ancestors. The consciousness of the ancestors was concrete, a person in ancient times could not think abstractly, although he could create beautiful images. For them, there was just a table, a house, a stone, a horse, a tree, God - real things. Spiritual and material were not divided into two different concepts: people have not yet learned to separate flies from meatballs. When a person killed an animal, he danced the tumba-yumba, or in some other way apologized to the real god for him for the environmental damage he caused.

It is logical that a real tree has become a symbol of the unity of the whole world, which has its roots in the earth (the other world), stretches upwards with its trunk and sticks its crown into the sky, the abode of the gods. That is, the world tree is a link between all three worlds. By means of this simple tool, it was possible, like on an elevator, to get to heaven, which was done by the heroes of numerous fairy tales.

Before writing this article, I honestly tried to think like an ancient woman, and in doing so, my mind almost went crazy. When I imagine our civilization, a Google map or, in extreme cases, a globe on the table of a teacher from a distant childhood comes before my poor imagination. The ancestors represented the tree, and the world was placed in accordance with the branches of this tree.

The lower branches were north and the upper branches were south. Any river began in the south (that is, at the top, closer to the gods) and flowed north, that is, to the lower branches of the tree. Moreover, people rose to the east, and descended to the west (this is generally a complete removal of the brain). Everything ancient was linear, and the vertical was connected with the horizontal. Everything horizontal is the branches of a tree that grow from a vertical trunk. The tree divided the world into three tiers.

Note: The emergence of a symmetrical vertical composition in the ornament is directly related to the structure of the World Tree: sky - earth - the underworld.

In the world of ornamentation, there are a huge number of different modifications of the Tree, everything depended on which part of the earth it grew in. He was revered in the form of a date palm, sycamore, cedar, cypress, oak, ash, birch. Papyrus, lotus, lily were symbolically associated with it. Huge flowers, columns, towers, stairs, and temples are also stylized variations of the World Tree.

Variations of the World Tree

The motifs of the world tree ornament are connected with the same cult tradition. Under its shadow, the first steps were taken by the progenitors of mankind, Adam and Eve. Of course, it is under the world tree, in the center of the universe, that gods, heroes and great kings are born.

The world tree in Egyptian ornament

The Egyptians believed that the axis of the earth is a golden tree, whose top rests on the sky. On the upper branches of the Egyptian world tree, precious stones grew, and the goddess Nut sat. It was raining for the Egyptians, because the Phoenix bird was knocking its wings against the tree with all its foolishness, and it ended up splashing water. The tomb of Osiris was also standing next to the tree, and his soul was sitting on the tree in the form of a bird. Naturally, all this disgrace was reflected in the Egyptian ornament, which can be read about here.

Interestingly, Mrs. Butkevich believes that the volute, as an element of the capital, appeared for the first time in Egyptian paintings, and represents a flower on the top of the World Tree. By the way, the Egyptian lotus growing out of the swamp also symbolizes the world tree.

World Tree in Mesopotamia

The oldest Mesopotamian image of a sacred tree dates back to 4000 BC. We mentioned the theme of the tree of life in Babylon - Assyrian culture in the article “Ornament of Mesopotamia”, there are also pictures of an ornament with a tree. Mesopotamian world trees in the ornament are of different types. They can consist of a trunk and branches - sticks with circles at the ends, which mean fire. There are flowers similar to palmettes growing from the trunk, as well as magnificent structures, in the form of a composition of flowers, curls, cones, in which a tree is not immediately guessed.

The world tree in the Aegean culture

The sophisticated Cretan-Minoan culture expanded the idea of ​​the world tree. Their elemental world was consecrated by the presence of a palm tree, and the cultural world - by an olive. Everything natural and cultural existed separately. The Mycenaean tree was highly stylized, and was a hybrid that looked like cypress, lily, papyrus and iris at the same time.

The vast majority of variants of the sacred tree represented stylized flowers, especially lilies and crocuses. By the way, the Minotaur, who loved to eat human beings, is none other than the guardian of the World Tree. According to the Pahlavi legend, the lake from which the tree grows should be guarded by King Gopat, who has a human body and a bull's head.

World Tree in Greek ornament

It is a very stylized Greek version of the Assyro-Babylonian Tree. The vertical symmetrical composition of the tree is enriched with palmettes, lilies, guardians and scrolls. In addition, it is often "fenced" with stripes with meanders, without which the Greeks apparently simply could not live. Numerous examples can be found on Greek vases.

Yggdrasil World Tree

Yggdrasil Ash is the Scandinavian world tree. We have an article "The Last Torques: Celtic Ornament", where he is also mentioned. At the base of the tree, the cosmic serpent Nidhogg was registered, the wisest eagle sits at the top, and a prophetic squirrel constantly rushes along the trunk. Moreover, Odin still grazes his three horses there, one of them lives in heaven, the other on earth, and the third in the underworld. All this cheerful company can be found in ornaments, however, few of them have been preserved in historical accuracy.

Persian world tree

The Persians describe the tree of life as a huge sacred tree bearing all the seeds. The devil created a frog that was supposed to climb a tree and destroy it so that nothing else would grow on the earth. Then the god took a countermeasure, making two fish that grazed the frog from morning to evening. As a result, the mission of the frog failed. To celebrate, the Persians sang the tree of life in ornaments, depicted it on carpets, and made a name for themselves in arts and crafts to this day.

The tree of life in the Arab-Muslim ornament

In the Arab-Muslim world, the tree of life means the following: "Life has reached its highest perfection." Trees in Islam are the key to paradise, and the palm tree is considered a sacred tree.
