The Valknut is another recognizable symbol of the ancient Vikings history. In Old Norse, Valknut means “Slain Warriors” and “knot”. Not a great deal is known about the archaeological symbol, but it has remained prominent in Scandinavia and with Viking Norse Mythology. Some sources link it closely with Valhalla and Odin and is thought to have much to do with the transition between life and deat.
Viking shields were made of wood with iron bosses that covered the hand-grip to protect the hand. The grip itself was usually made of wood, but sometimes metal was used instead. Some shields had metal rims around their edges. Shields were decorated with paints, often brightly colorful ones. As Norse poetry attests, shields could also feature pictures of mythical motifs. Some shields had leather coverings for extra strength. The diameter of a typical Viking shield was a little less than a meter.
Each pendant is precisely handmade. The process of making one pendant can take up to two days – it requires the closest attention to ensure the highest possible quality.
