Viking-inspired amulet with the legendary sigil, Helm of Awe, depicted on both sides of the pendant. One side of the pendant resembles a compass and comes with an interchangeable Helm of Awe symbol, and the other side has the engraved Helm of Awe symbol surrounded by the Runic circle. The Runic circle is often called "the Wheel of the World" and it contains the entire Elder Futhark alphabet, claimed to have beneficial mystical properties by Skaldic manuscripts. Both color variations of the Helm of Awe sigil and a comfortable metal link chain necklace are included with the amulet.
The Helm of Awe, also known as Aegishjalmur or Viking Compass, is a mysterious and powerful symbol in Norse mythology. Described in one of the poems in the Poetic Edda, this symbol was worn by the terrifying guardian dragon of cursed treasure known as Fafnir. In the poem, much of Fafnir’s strength and invincibility is attributed to this symbol worn between his brows, and many Norse warriors would follow in his stead wearing this symbol to grant them the dragon’s ferocity. In addition to the legend, each arm of the Helm of Awe resembles the Old Norse Z rune, which symbolized protection and victory in battle.
