These wolves surrounded by a circular border have features that are distinguishable from other pieces. The light and dark design play well with border Norse letters rounding the iconic wolf duo in stainless steel. In the Viking Age, there was surely more to this story that has since been lost due to the rather sparse and fragmentary nature of the primary sources. One of the two extant Old Norse versions of this myth comes from a poem (the Völuspá in the Poetic Edda) which seems to be missing one or more stanzas that would have come directly before the two stanzas that recount the creation of Ask and Embla. In the form in which the poem has come down to us, the stanzas before these have to do with dwarves, and the transition from them to this myth is abrupt and seemingly arbitrary. However, a few scholars have interpreted those preceding stanzas as implying that the dwarves – the master craftsmen of the cosmos – had fashioned the initial forms of Ask and Embla, which the gods then brought to life.
