Beskrivning: Vad representerar denna produkt?

The "Lovers of Bornholm" pendant captures a tender moment from the distant past, replicated from a small 6th-century gold plaque found on the Isle of Bornholm, Denmark. This exquisite piece, known as a 'guldgubbar'—which charmingly translates to "little old man of gold" features two lovers locked in an embrace, reflecting the richness of Viking-age artistry.

Commonly interpreted as depicting the sacred marriage between the Vanir god Freyr and the giantess Gerðr, as told in the Eddic poem Skírnismál, this pendant carries deep mythological significance. The formal attire of the figures emphasizes the importance of their union, potentially symbolizing a divine or formal event in Norse mythology.

This pendant is not just a piece of jewelry; it’s a wearable piece of history that embodies the spiritual and romantic narratives of ancient Scandinavia.
