A Twisted Spear inspired by the Gungnir, a spear that when thrown Always hits its target. The spear also represents inspiration, war, and wisdom. This pendant is made out of stainless steel and in the middle of the spear has a Valknut. The Valknut also is a symbol of the dead warriors slain in battle and is currently in Valhalla feasting!
Gurnir is not only the symbol that is associated with Odin, but it is also the symbol related to inspiration, war and wisdom. What is unique about Gurnir? Firstly, when throwing a spear, it always reached the target, and there was no material that could stand against this weapon. After the throw, Gungnir always returns, like the great Thor’s Mjölnir. Swears given on the Gurnir became eternal and indestructible. According to Norse mythology, when Odin decided to sacrifice his life to find out the runes as well as the mysterious secrets they covered, he took his Gurnir and stabbed it through his chest. He had been hanging from the Tree of Life for nine days. As a tradition, Vikings used a spear in combination with hanging for their sacrifices to Odin. As a symbol of victory, Vikings used spears and threw them through their enemies’ lines, as a symbol of sacrificing them to the god Odin.
The Vikings believed that people who lived ordinary lives went on to a shadowy existence after death, but those who died gloriously in battle lived on in Valhalla. The Valkyries would carry the souls of these heroes from the battlefield. In Valhalla, they would live the Viking version of the good life: fighting great battles against each other every day but – in their immortal state – spending each night in revelry and feasting. This paradise comes with a price, though. For the slain warriors are Odin’s army, and they will join the gods in the last, great battle of Ragnarok. They will fight this doomed battle against the giants and fearsome creatures of darkness for the sake of our world and the world of the gods.
