Odin NORSE GOD Bronze Pendant - All Father on THRONE by Dryad Design in Bronze

Note: the interior of the throne is hollow. It would be very heavy to wear otherwise. It's a substantial pendant, very intricately designed and detailed - beautiful!

Odin is known as the All Father, the leader of the Norse Gods. He governs War, Death, Poetry, the Arts and Wisdom. He gave one of his eyes to drink of the well of wisdom. His magical spear is named Gungnir. The ravens, named Hugin and Munin, are Thought and Memory. They fly the world during the day returning to tell Odin what they have witnessed. The throne depicts Odin hanging from the World Tree as a sacrifice. The runic inscription from the Havamal reads: "Take I up runes. I took up runes."

From Wikipedia: Odin (pron.: /ˈoʊdɨn/; from Old Norse Óðinn) is a major god in Norse mythology and the ruler of Asgard.[1] Homologous with the Old English "Wōden", the Old Saxon "Wôdan" and the Old High German "Wôtan",[2] the name is descended from Proto-Germanic "*Wodanaz" or "*Wōđanaz". "Odin" is generally accepted as the modern English form of the name, although, in some cases, older forms may be used or preferred. His name is related to ōðr, meaning "fury, excitation," besides "mind," or "poetry." His role, like that of many of the Norse gods, is complex. Odin is a principal member of the Æsir (the major group of the Norse pantheon) and is associated with war, battle, victory and death, but also wisdom, Shamanism, magic, poetry, prophecy, and the hunt. Odin has many sons, the most famous of whom is Thor.
