This shaped serpent resembles a dragon but the Nordic interpretation of it. From the detailed scales to the facial features of this mythological beast these stainless steel piece definitely stands out among a crowd. The creature is not actually referred to as a dragon, but rather as Ormr or serpent. In later sagas one sees the use of a creature called a dreki, which is depicted as being able to fly, breathe fire and sometimes have two front legs and claws. Acker sees this change coming from the influence of Christian Europe – as texts such as Saints’ Lives and Chivalric Romances get exported into northern Europe, so did their depictions of dragons.
