Product description

A bronze pendant - the size in length without the eyelet is 2,2 cm. The pendant is inspired by a rock carving from Scandinavia from the Bronze Age around 1000 BC. The symbol of a triple twig first appears on pottery of the Stone Age. Here it probably symbolizes a tree or the Tree of the World. But it can also symbolize the gods (?) invoking a figure with outstretched arms. This symbol is also documented in the Czech Republic on the bottoms of Celtic vessels in the first centuries BC. It is probably a magical sign protecting the contents of the vessel. It can also be traced back to ancestors of the Norse Germanic tribes on stone carvings from the Bronze Age. For Germanic tribes, this symbol later appears as the rune Algiz (Protection).
