The Helm of Awe represents a Viking magical spell of protection

The Helm of Awe (Old Norse:Ægishjálmr, pronounced “EYE-gis-hiowlm-er”) is one of the most mysterious and powerful symbols in Norse mythology.

The Norse believed that if they pressed a helm of awe symbol made of lead, between their eyes and recited: Ægishjálm er ég ber, milli brúna mér! (I bear the helm of awe, between my brows!), that they would be invincible in battle.

A poem in the Fáfnismál has the havoc-wreaking dragon Fafnir attributing his invincibility to the Helm of Awe as follows:

The Helm of Awe

I wore before the sons of men

In defense of my treasure;

Amongst all, I alone was strong,

I thought to myself,

For I found no power a match for my own.

 

Quality Guaranteed!
