A series of talismans as key rings from the pebbles on the Sainte-Odile site with Odylus residents, who are temporarily occupying places. Doubles are then shaped and decorated with an engraving of the Kenaz rune. This rune shaped in a corner of a roof symbolises the domesticated fire, the torch, the flame, in connection with the hearth or the household: in the past, the population was counted in number of « fire » or luminous « hearths », therefore readable at night. Kenaz, lined and inverted to form a cross, corresponds to the rune Gebo which means hospitality, gift or attachment.
