Gilt bronze. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. This example is just under1” high with a baluster central column superimposed on the crescent moon, with largely expanded terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the moon. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear.
