The serpent is a very powerful symbol in most cultures and were very commonly used as decoration in old Norse and Viking arts. This pendant is made of a bronze tray and a solid silver inlay containing 13g (0.45oz) Sterling silver. The classic snake-like pattern shows the Midgård serpent grasping itself as it is told in the Norse mythology. The pendant will be delivered in a luxurious gift box without a neck cord.
Jörmungandr, also known as the Midgård Serpent, is one of Lokis three children. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Jörmungandr and threw him into the great ocean that encircles Midgård; the world of humans. With time, he grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail and were therefor called Midgård Serpent or the World Serpent.
When he lets go of his tail, Rangnarök begins and the world will end.
