- Scandinavian Viking Animal Art in 11th - 12th Century Urnes (or Runestone) Style.
- Norse Knotwork Pendant handcrafted in .925 Sterling Silver.
- Size: 2 inches in height.
Meticulously crafted from fine sterling silver, the Silver Urnes Animal Art Viking Pendant showcases the unique beauty of ancient Scandinavian art and the fine craftsmanship of Peter Stone Artisans.
From Wikipedia: The Urnes style is named after the northern gate of the Urnes stave church in Norway, but most objects in the style are runestones in Uppland, Sweden, which is why some scholars prefer to call it the Runestone style.
The style is characterized by slim and stylized animals that are interwoven into tight patterns. The animals heads are seen in profile, they have slender almond-shaped eyes and there are upwardly curled appendages on the noses and the necks.
Pendant only. This item does not come with a chain or cord.
