VIKING SORCERER'S AMULET
Slightly under 1” height. Bronze of kite shape representing a duck’s foot. Pierced which required advanced casting skills. A burial at Viden Denmark contained the body of a woman of wealth and status buried with henbane seeds, which have hallucinogenic properties, and a wand as well as other objects. From these, it was concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this. Professionally refurbished on a sterling silver chain for modern wear.
