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 slightly over 1” high with central column superimposed on the crescent moon, with expanded terminals representing Sol the sun and Mani the Moon. The crescent encloses conjoined cusped members with a trefoil at the junction, representing a solar convergence. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear.
