Norse Raven – Necklace


The ravens on Vikings represent the Viking god Odin. It is an iconic and magical creature in the Viking world. It is a powerful symbol of war and is believed to be the eyes and ears of the chief Viking god, Odin. Viking raiders release them, and if they do not return, it signals that land is near.

This pendant represents the Raven Huginn (“thought”), one of the ravens who, according to Norse mythology, are enlisted in Odin’s service. The birds depart every morning at dawn to fly around the Norse world, Midgard. At dinner, they return to their perches on Odin’s shoulders and tell him what they have seen.
