Runic Thors Hammer
This sterling silver and bronze Thors Hammer with runes, is my copy of an exciting recent discovery from Lolland, Denmark. This is the only Thors Hammer found with a runic inscription – which reads hmar.is, translating this is a hammer. The other side shows a mask, probably the god‘s face.
Viking myths tell us that Thor's Hammer, Mjolnir, was the weapon that protected the world from the chaotic forces of the giants. Many amulets of Thor's Hammer have been found, as a symbol of strength against the chaotic forces of the universe. As a holy symbol of Norse paganism, the hammer was also used to hallow the union between man and wife.
