For Achievement & Victory
The Axe was a primary weapon, also used peaceably for ship building and in crafts and magic. In the Vopusa (The Sibyl's Prophecy), a weeress tells Odin of an axe-age, a sword-age and a wolf-age preceding Ragnarok - the end of the Viking's world - which Odin must try to delay but cannot prevent.
Lovingly reproduced, the original meanings of each pendant are explained on its accompanying Viking leaflet.
The Vikings were well known for their love of adornments and jewellery. Our Trove of Valhalla collection pays tribute to many of their iconic designs.
