Urnes Style Viking Brooch
The beautiful curves of this Urnes style Viking brooch are an example of viking art from the late 11th century. Many examples of this type of Urnes brooch have been found. I have modelled mine on a Norwegian example, but similar pieces have been found elsewhere in Scandinavia. I love the elegant simplicity of this design, which shows a stylised beast in harmonious conflict with a serpent, and I have focused especially on keeping the sweeping grace of the original Urnes style.
