A large pewter Thors hammer pendant with embossed Celtic design featuring a triscele.
This pendant is associated with ancient Scandinavian religious beliefs. Thor was the mightiest god, waging war against the giants whom he killed with his hammer. At the same time he was a god of the home, hallowing marriage and purifying funerals.
The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art and is thought to have some Roman influence, although fine examples are found in the native art of Ireland and Scotland. It is thought to represent the three realms of Celtic lore: the past, the present and the future. One of the most popular of Ancient Celtic designs, it survived well into the Christian period, probably because it could also be considered to represent the Holy Trinity.
Width: 40mm Height: 45mm Comes on an adjustable waxed cotton cord.
Supplied in a satin lined and recyclable gift box.
