Pendant made in solid Sterling Silver. It is a reproduction of one of the 248 rare Viking Age coins found in Ribe, Denmark in 2018. The coins date to the early 800s. The motif is quite interesting with a deer almost kissing a snake. A Valknut symbol is placed below the deer and what looks like a sun above it.
The Valknut (warrior’s knot) is an ancient symbol that appears on runestones as early on as the 8th century. It is associated with the god Odin and symbolizes his power to lay bonds upon the mind, turning men helpless in battle, or making them fearless and filled with battle-madness, intoxication and inspiration.
