This wooden viking symbol has been designed, laser cut and beautifully hand finished by us at Bear & Rose in the UK. The double layer adds an extra element of depth to this beautiful piece of wall art.

The Helm of Awe is an ancient Viking symbol - In the Viking era, warriors would wear the symbol between their brows as a sign of strength in battle, believing that it would grant them victory. The trident looking arms of the symbol are Z runes which symbolise protection and victory in battle. The Helm of Awe was also said to provide mental and spiritual protection as well as physical. The circle in the centre is meant to symbolise the protection of those bearing the Helm of Awe.
