Surviving Germanic Bronze Age carvings give us a look at the Irminsul, out-dating Saxon use in the Germanic Iron Age. But in both ages, it appears that the Irminsul may have been used as a totem, a focal point for worship (at least at the tribal level) and may have represented the power of all the Gods. And there seems to be a linguistic link between the names Irmin and Wodan. Are you surprised? Below is a short film made by Stuart's Travel Videos about Externsteine, the supposed home base of at least one Irminsul.
