Beautiful pendant representing the Icelandic symbol Vegvisir : the runic compass
Literally translated from Icelandic as "signpost", the Vegvisir is a runic compass. Like all compasses, it is intended to help the wearer find his or her way.
It helps to avoid getting lost in bad weather, storms or snowfalls, as much on the open sea as on land in unknown areas.
A key symbol of Icelandic culture, not to be confused with the Aegishjalmur, which also has 8 branches
