Viking Shield Helm of Awe Pendant

$26.99

Clear

Viking Shield Helm of Awe Pendant, in stainless steel. 

Little is known about the Helm of Awe or Aegishjalmr as a symbol, except that it was used in magical practices, possibly as an amulet or talisman to grant strength. It probably doesn’t refer to an actual helm, but instead armor, in a loose sense; a “thing that covers.” In the Poetic Edda, the dragon Fafnir mentions it:

“The fear-helm I wore to afright mankind,
While guarding my gold I lay;
Mightier seemed I than any man,
For a fiercer never I found.”

The “fear-helm” in this translation is the Helm of Awe; the “awe” is meant in the sense of terror, being unable to move.

This pendant combines the idea of the Aegishjalmr as protection with the design of a viking shield.
