Viking Wolf Head Ring
Sterling Silver 925 Ring
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.
It 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 lone wolf was something strongly independent and untamed; the name wolf head was also a term used for an outlaw who took refuge in the forest.
I believe these ancient meanings still echo for us today. I have designed this ring myself, using the Borre style and closely modelling it on wolf head motifs found on an original viking casket.
