Small Thor's Hammer with Knotwork


    • Description

      This is a small, simpler version of my Thor's hammer with the valknut knotwork. Using the form of various original finds of the Thor's hammer, I have made my own design with a small knotwork pattern, keeping a solid, substantial form.

      Thors elemental weapon, the hammer, was a bringer of thunder. The Viking god Thor protected the order of the universe against the chaotic forces of the giants, and his hammer was the key to this. A primordial myth that reaches back into the hidden past, the hammer as a weapon predates mankind's discovery of metal. Yet its meaning still resonates for us today.

      Strength against chaos.

      It was also a sacred symbol that was used to hallow the union of man and woman at the marriage ceremony.
