WOTANSKNOTEN RUNIC VALKNUT Antiqued Brass Double Faced Amulet Pendant Necklace

$29.95

The Valknut (Old Norse valr, "slain warriors" + knut, "knot") is a symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles, and appears on various Germanic objects. Hilda Ellis Davidson theorizes a connection between the Valknut, the god Odin and "mental binds" - "For instance, beside the figure of Odin on his horse shown on several memorial stones there is a kind of knot depicted, called the Valknut, related to the Triskele. This is thought to symbolize the power of the god to bind and unbind, mentioned in the poems and elsewhere. Odin had the power to lay bonds upon the mind, so that men became helpless in battle, and he could also loosen the tensions of fear and strain by his gifts of battle-madness, intoxication, and inspiration." Rudolf Simek states that the symbol may have been associated with religious practices surrounding death.

This lovely antiqued brass plated (over a lead and nickel free base metal) double faced charm amulet talisman features a Valknut symbol surrounded by Norse Runes, measures approximately 1.4 Inches in diameter, and hangs on a 20" bronze plated chain fitted with a lobster claw clasp.
