A beautiful replica from the 10th century after a find from Erikstorp, Ödeshög (Ostergötland, Sweden).
Thor, who was the strongest of all the ancient Norse gods, was very revered. God of storms and lightning, Thor slain trolls and man-eating giants, and ensured good harvests.
Thor, son of Odin and Jord, was given by his wife, the giantess Jarnsaxa, two sons, Magni and Modi.
Thor rules in the Bilskinir Hall, his palace in the realm of Trudheim, and he proudly carries his Mjölnir hammer. The "Thorhammer" was once forged by the dwarves Sindri and Brokk.
Thor draws his strength from his belt Megingjardar and his iron hand Jarngreipr.
As today, the Thorhammer was worn for centuries by pagan people to protect them from danger. The Thorhammer is THE symbol of pagan belief.
The Ostergötland Thorhammer is decorated on both sides with ornaments.
