Gripping Beast Pendant from Norway
A stylised gripping beast in the Jelling style adorns this Viking Age find from Norway. The original was a small brooch but I have re-made it as a pendant (You can find it also as a brooch under Brooches and Pins). It is a fine example of the early Jelling style, finding its own separate identity from the more common Borre style.
