Viking Shield Banner Amulet Pendant Necklace in Copper
Vikings strove to be brave warriors, and were motivated by the unshaking belief that Valhalla was their ultimate reward. This Viking Heros Shield personifies the boldness of the Viking Spirit. This impressive pendant is modeled after the tall shield that some Viking warriors might have favored when marching into battle, capped with the helmed head of a Viking hero. The shield is richly embossed with twisting Celtic dragon knots, while the head of a Viking hero, still in its helmet, rests atop the shield. In Viking Age Scandinavia, a Norseman's weapons and arms displayed his wealth and social status. The Viking Shield was one of his most important means of defense.
Each Viking Shield amulet features intricate design styling with an Odin bail, crafted in copper over a premium lead and nickel free base metal and measures 16 x 40mm. The double-faced amulet hangs on a beautiful bold yet delicate unique antique copper 20" chain fitted with a lobster claw clasp.
