Viking Drum Valknut 1283
The Viking drum Valknut is lookig for its owner...is it you? The drum has a low sound that resonates deep in the player´s body. It brings with it the Nine Noble Virtues of the Vikings: Courage, truth, honour, fidelity, discipline, hospitality, self-reliance, industriousness and perseverance. The mystical symbol of Valknut is made of three interlocked triangles that create nine corners. They signify the nine worlds depiced in the Scandinavian mythology. The tree triangles represent a trinity of heaven, earth and hell. Scholars have proposed a variety of explanations for the symbol, sometimes associating it with the god Odin or religious practices surrounding death. Some say that the Vikings wore the symbol for protection. (The source: Wikipedia) Being environmentally friendly and ethical, we source our materials locally from known and responsible suppliers.
