Viking Symbol Shield - Helm of Awe - single layer
This variant is currently sold out.
This wooden Viking symbol has been designed, laser cut and beautifully hand finished by us at Bear & Rose in the UK.
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.
These are available in five different wood types: Maple, Oak, Sapele, Walnut or a Painted Black Oak option - you can select the perfect wood finish to suit your room decor. Our veneered wood is of the highest quality, is FSC sustainably sourced and prepared in-house with a depth of 6mm.
Please note: as we are working with natural materials, the grain and shade of the wood may vary from that shown in the pictures, and from piece to piece. As part of the laser cutting process, the reverse of our wooden items may have some slight burn marks. Wood options are not suitable for prolonged outdoor use as they are not weatherproof.

We provide some strong 3M removable double-sided tape and some wall tacks, which we find is a simple and quick solution for mounting the items on a wall. You can choose to use any other mounting technique if you prefer. We do not take any responsibility for the way you mount our pieces to surfaces.
