The Ihwaz rune, also known as the "Yew rune" or "Eihwaz rune," is one of the 24 characters in the runic alphabet. Ihwaz is closely associated with the yew tree, a long-lived and resilient evergreen. The yew tree is often seen as a symbol of endurance, longevity, and the cycle of life and death. In Scandinavian cultures, the yew was considered sacred and was often planted in graveyards as a symbol of immortality. Much like the yew tree's ability to thrive in harsh conditions, the Ihwaz rune encourages resilience and adaptability.
