Norse religion and culture are steeped in symbology. The Vikings believed that the symbols had power and that carrying the right symbol with you could change the course of your fate.
This unique and striking bronze pendant combines two powerful Viking symbols associated with Odin, the king of the Norse gods.
Odin, the god of war, wisdom, writing, death, explorers, and witchcraft, had many symbols.
Among the most well-known are ravens. He had two raven companions, Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory), and ravens would travel the world acting as his eyes and wears. Seeing ravens over the battlefield was also a good sign, as it meant that Odin was present to choose brave fallen warriors to take to Valhalla.
The raven skull symbol may have been particularly associated with Odin as the god of war and fallen warriors.
The runic symbol carved on the dead of the raven amulet is Aegishjalmur, also known as the Helm of Awe.
Viking warriors would use this symbol to invoke the favor of Odin and give themselves the strength and courage to face their enemies.
Honor the god Odin with this striking and unusual design, calling on him as a god of wisdom, war, and death, invoking his support in every aspect of your own life.
