Viking dragon pendant – a petwer interwoven dragon design pendant. Comes on an 18″ tin plated trace chain.
Since ancient times, the dragon was an important creature and symbol associated with the Norse mythology and, later on, integrated and described in the folk tales of the Scandinavian countries. The most reputed Viking longships were decorated with dragon heads on their bow and stern, as a sign of strength, power, and bravery. In addition, waving draco flags were sometimes on the battlefield by the Norsemen (and also by the Anglo-Saxons) in order to intimidate their foes. Thus, the dragon was definitely a major symbol that defined the Viking Age.
