This gold-toned stainless steel exhibit is a replica of thors made in a necklace form. The necklace itself is painstakingly detailed with various cultural references to Norse literature. Trees are frequently used as metaphors (kennings, more precisely) for humans in Old Norse poetry, which suggests a strong association between humans and trees in the Norse mind. Perhaps this is an indirect corroboration of the myth as we find it in the Eddas. Old Norse scholar Henning Kure interprets this association thusly: “Man has his feet on the ground, anchored in this world, with roots – ties – to death and chaos in his nature. But his crown, his head or mind, is in the mental or spiritual world. Like the world tree, man possesses the capability of connecting the world above with the world below. But it takes the way of the god to create the link…”
