Product description

Bronze pendant, Nordic bracteates date from the pre-Viking period around the year 600. The original bracteates were made out of a gold plate into which various motifs were pressed. A common motif is a large head and an animal and a common theme is a hunting, equestrian or warrior animal. A large part of these bracteates is decorated with a swastika motif and almost every bracteate has a runic inscription. This product is slightly inspired by one of these bracteates but unlike the golden plate, it is a fairly massive bronze pendant. The central motif was preserved, including the swastika, but the rune inscription was changed and instead of a specific inscription (relating to the then early medieval owner) the entire rune Futhark of twenty-four runes was used. The size without the eyelet is 3.3 cm.
