The Irminsul is a common symbol of the Asatru faith. The historical Norse irminsul was a solar-phallic pillar used in religious worship practices by early Anglo-Saxons. Its exact meaning is unknown, although it may be connected with the Anglo-saxon deity Irmin, who is possibly related to the Norse God Tyr. The Irminsul was likely related to the World Tree Yggdrasil, a symbol of the axis mundi (world axis), a symbol of man and the cosmos.
