Winged Loki Brooch


    • Description

      I have copied this intriguing piece showing a winged man from a find from Uppakra in Sweden. Do we have here a depiction of Loki, clad in Freya's falcon skin, flying hawkishly over the worlds? Or is this Volund (Weland/Wieland) the smith, who legend tells built himself wings to escape from earthbound slavery? (A symbol of a person who rises above adversity). The interpretation is open.

      Similarly, we do not know what it was originally used for - I have made it as a brooch, and  also as a pendant (see the pendants section).

      Whether a Loki brooch, or Volund brooch, this winged man is an outstanding example of Viking art.

      Height 40mm

      Weight for Sterling Silver 12.5g (Weight may vary from piece to piece)
