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.
As a symbol, the axe stands for bravery, strength, and audacity. It is a reminder of heritage and the accomplishments of ancestors who bent the world to their will using only what they had. It is a symbol of the berserker, and all that entails. It conveys the heart or mind’s ability to cut through that which holds one back and to forge boldly ahead.
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.
