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.
The Valknut is an ancient Norse symbol. It is often called Hrungnir’s Heart, after the legendary giant of the Edaas. It is also know as the knot of the calin, and it has been found on stone carvings with funerary motifs, possibly a symbol of the afterlife. The nine points are suggestive of the nine worlds and the nine fates of Norse mythology.
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.
