The quintessential Viking symbol is Mjolnir, Thor's Hammer. More examples of Thor's Hammer pendants and symbols survive in the Viking archaeological record than all other symbols combined.
This particular pendant is a replica of a Mjolnir pendant found in Ödeshög, Östergötland, in Sweden.
It was used as a symbol of protection. As the strongest of the Aesir gods, Thor was called upon to protect Asgard (the realm of the gods) and Midgard (the realm of men) from the giants.
The symbol was also used well into the Christian period as an antithesis to the cross and a symbol of continued allegiance to the Norse gods.
The original was made in silver with the granulate and filigree technique. Each copy is handmade of bronze using the lost wax method, but our model has been made using the same ancient technique, so this reproduction reflects all the details.
