Looking for some authentic Norse and Viking Symbols to hang on your wall? It’s not easy these days, as there are so many historically dubious products out there claiming to be Viking or Norse, but with little or no authenticity.
So know that with this product, and all my products, you will get historically accurate Norse symbols, that were actually in use by Viking Age Scandinavians.
In this case, here’s a metal sign depicting the giant wolf Fenrir of Norse mythology, based on an actual silver brooch from Viking Age Scandinavia.
I’ve meticuously illustrated an enlarged version of this beautiful ancient archeological find by hand, so that it can be cast in metal and hung on a wall.
Fenrir, or Fenrisúlfr, is the giant and infamous wolf of Norse mythology, who was so feared by the Norse gods that they chained him down to keep him from fleeing.
It is said that “all the warriors of Valhalla” could not defeat Fenrir, and when he ultimately breaks free from captivity in the midst of Ragnarök, he tries to swallow the world whole and challenges Odin the All-Father to a mortal duel.
Surrounding the tied-down wolf is a beautiful circular pattern that is truly one of a kind, meaning you won’t find it on any other piece of art out there (unless it’s based on the same brooch of course!).
The sign is made with 18 gauge steel and powder coated in your choice of 5 colors, this sign is built to withstand the elements for years of enjoyment. Add a touch of the Old Norse world to your home on the inside, outside, or both!
• 18 Gauge Steel
• 5 Color Options (Black, Red, White, Copper, Silver)
• 6 Sizes – 36″, 30″, 24″, 18″ *Selected size is based on the maximum height or width of the sign depending on physical orientation
• Mounting Hardware Not Included
I’m a Swede who decided to make authentic Viking designs after seeing one too many symbols claiming to be Norse and Viking despite being almost a thousand years off.
The prime example is the 19th-century Icelandic Vegvisír (a.k.a. the “Viking Compass”) which you’ll see all over the internet, and which has never been found on a single Viking Age item.
And to make matters worse, it is commonly combined with Elder Futhark runes, which were mainly used before the Viking age even started, between 0 CE and 700 CE. Twice as bad!
This just shows how much misinformation and inaccurate “Viking” art there is out there, so if you’re looking for accurate and authentic Viking and Norse wall art, all of the products in my shop are based on actual archeological finds from the Viking age, and specifically designed with regard to the Norse culture and actual Viking Age symbolism.
