Adding product to your cart
The viking warrior skull is based off of my passion for history, it was hand sculpted and carved with the focal point being the symbol known as the Helm of Awe which was created in Norse Mythology toinspire awe and fear: it's eight arms that look like spiked tridents radiate out from a central point (the red swarovski crystal), as if defending that central point by going on the offensive against any and all hostile forces that surround it and was also considered a symbol of upcoming victory. The dragon like symbol on the shield is known as anOuroboros, which was actually emblematicof ancient Egyptand Greecerepresented with its tailn its mouth, continually devouring itself and being reborn from itself. AnOuroboros expresses the unity of all things, material and spiritual, which never disappear but perpetually change form in an eternal cycle of destruction and re-creation.
