Sword Photography - The Triglav Project
- Photographer and Copyright: Jacek Gajak
- Theme: Projekt Trzyglów
The name of the projects is given by “Triglav”, meaning “three headed” also sometimes called “troglav”, a deity in Slavic mythology. Triglav is depicted as representation of three major Slavic gods that vary from one Slavic tribe to others that serve as the representatives of the above mentioned realms.
Triglav is depicted as a three-headed man sometimes with bands of (gold) blindfolds over his eyes, or a man with three goat heads. Several temples dedicated to Triglav existed near present-day Szczecin, Poland. During the period of Christianization, these temples and statues of Triglav were completely destroyed.
