Beautiful pendant representing the Viking symbol Valknut : The knot of the slain
From the Old Norse Valr "slain warriors" and Knut "knot", the alknut symbol is associated with the God Odin, evoking valour and death in the sense of liberation of the soul.
The intertwining of its three triangles contains the symbolism of 3 and 9 (three sides per triangle), which are essential in Norse mythology: the 3 roots of Yggdrasil with the interconnection of its 9 worlds.
Each triangle is also associated with a kingdom: earth, hell and heaven.
The Vlaknut represents the past, present and future of the 3 norms, the Goddesses of Fate.
Thor has his hammer, Odin his symbol. And it is through this symbol of the Valknut that Odin exercises his power to bind or unbind the minds of men.
