Viking Belt Set With Wolf Heads in Borre Style
This Viking belt is my own design. I have combined the form of a buckle carved in bone and a type of cloak pin with wolf heads in Borre style from the 9th - 10th centuries.
The wolf was a symbol of power for the Vikings – we find it again and again as an image in their art, but also in their myths and legends.
The wolf was primarily the sign of the warrior, but it also works on deeper levels of meaning.
The wolf lurked in the deep forest of legend (known as Mirkvithr), a hidden threat in dark places; the myth of the inner warrior who waits to come out.
The strap end is based on a much simpler version from Viking Age York and is split at the end to take a leather strap.
If you want your buckle set put on a belt, see the Viking belt offer at the start of this Belt Fittings section.
Takes strap 29mm (1¼ inches) wide, tapering for the strap end. Strap end length 70mm (2¾ inches)
