The checkered pattern in this sterling silver is held in the highest regard by those that wish to exercise their intellectual prowess without being too gaudy about what they have. Two humans, Lif and Lifthrasir, who hid themselves during Ragnarök, come out and repopulate the world and life goes on. The description of this new world where fields "bear harvest without labor" and there is no sickness resonates, for some scholars, with Christian imagery and evokes the Garden of Eden suggesting that this was a later addition to a much older vision. Scholar Daniel McCoy, for example, notes that this kind of rebirth is inconsistent with pre-Christian Norse belief, but, as noted, since the myths were all recorded in the Christian era, it is difficult to tell what form they might have taken prior to the arrival of Christianity.
