Vendor: Omari Rugs

Description: According to Scandinavian mythology Odin was the father of all the gods. He was also the god of wisdom and was considered to be all-seeing and all-knowing. His omnipotence was explained by the 13th century Icelander, Snorri Sturluson who wrote, "Two ravens perch on his shoulders and speak into his ear all the news they see or hear, their names are Hugin and Munin (Thought and Memory). He sends them out at daybreak to fly all over the world, and they return in the evening; because of this he is able to find out about many things and so he is called the Raven god." The sight of a raven was held to be a good omen among worshippers of Odin. The two ravens are often seen together as are these stylized raven heads taken from a piece of Viking silverwork.

These so-called "gripping beasts" were the hallmark of Viking ornamentation and were imbued with great spiritual power.They were cast in metal, carved out of wood and chiseled into runestones, where they were often bordered by runes, the sixteen character early Scandinavian alphabet. Runes were made of straight lines to enable them to be carved into wood or stone. While often used for practical purposes to record mundane events, each runic symbol had its own name, significance and magical power to convey wisdom from the gods about the forces of mind and nature.
