Vikings had met other cultures, like Arabs, that also had special connections to the sun and the moon while taking some of their histories if at least for journal purposes as seen in this sterling silver work of art. The main stone contains Arab scripture but a familiar band to Norse art. Both combine to create this masterpiece of elegance and power without doing so boldly to display an air of regalness. A man living in Miðgarð had a son and daughter so beautiful that he called them Sól (sun) and Máni (moon). Angered by the man's daring, Óðin snatched the children and placed them in the sky to guide the chariots of the sun and the moon. The sun and the moon are always in a great hurry because they are being chased by wolves, sons of a giantess. From the maggots that crawled in Ymir's flesh, Óðin, Vili, and Vé created dwarves. They have the shape and wits of men, but they live under the earth in caves. Finally, the three brothers built their own realm. Ásgarð is a mighty stronghold, with green plains and shining palaces high over Miðgarð. They built the rainbow bridge Bifröst to link Ásgarð to Miðgarð. The Æsir, the guardians of men, crossed over the bridge and settled in Ásgarð. Óðin Alfaður is the oldest and greatest of them all. And this was the beginning of all that has happened.
