Vegvisir symbol planked Viking shield
The iconic Viking symbol of Vegvisir represented on this handmade shield. Grimoires suggest it could be painted on a person’s forehead in a similar manner to the Helm of Awe. Vegvisir is a symbolic compass so you are sure to always find the way with this symbol to guide and protect you
24 inch handpainted black Vegvisir symbol on white painted wood background. All my shields are handmade by me so they are true on-offs NOT mass produced
Hand crafted and painted by hand in England. Reverse is stained light walnut colour.
perfect size for handling, handmade with spruce planks not plywood, Viking shield with thick rawhide edging and riveted/nails (like was used by the Vikings). Steel black hammered boss is 12 gauge, 3mm thick and is an 8 inch circle, should be plenty of room if you wear a gauntlet. weighs 3.5 kilos.
Very well made piece, that will take a beating or a great display item.
