VIKING LUNAR PENDANT NECKLACE C.900-1000 AD
Just under 1” height including the suspension loop. Crescent form with expanded terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the Moon. As expert navigators, the constellations signified mystery and power to Vikings. The Moon was personified as Mani, brother to Sol the Sun, and is abundantly represented in Norse literature. Lunar pendants were worn as pectorals as well as suspended from belts, other clothing and horse harnesses. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored, on a modern Sterling silver neck chain and gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Nice delicate proportions.
