The Viking rune stave also known as the Helm of Awe, is a powerful, magical, Norse defensive protection symbol used as an amulet against physical or mental dangers. Originally, this stave would have been incised onto the front of a warrior's helmet, or drawn upon his forehead, to confront his adversaries fearlessly.

First of all, this is a beautifully made pendant. I love the two small dragon heads on each side of the hanger. Everything about it is what I was expecting except, there is brass cast or diffuse brassy acrylic colouration added to the concave front of the pendant. I was expecting a unified pewter look colouration to the front. Thought I would give it a chance, get used to it. But it is not what my eye wants to see. I will have to return it. (Love everything else, ie 5 items, I've bought so far from this seller).
Enjoy wearing it I don’t wear a lot of it but I enjoy wearing it
