Sterling Silver Odins Spear Gungnir

$35.00

Material: Solid sterling silver (lost wax technique cast), leather cord, glass beads (handmade)

Size: 41mm by 8 mm // 0.83 inches by 0.31 inches

This solid sterling silver rendition of Odin’s magical weapon, the spear Gungnir, comes embellished with traditional Viking Age designs on the shaft.

It comes with a leather cord as well as two handmade blue glass beads, designed after Iron Age finds in Norway. In the Poetic Edda, Odin in disguise is described as wearing a blue cloak and therefore has become affiliated with the color.


More about Gungnir (Odin’s Spear):

In Norse mythology, Gungnir is the spear of the god Odin.

While the sword and axe may seem like the most common weapons of the Norse, the spear was also widely used by Viking warriors and is found as pendants in graves, perhaps as an allegiance to Odin.

In both the Poetic and Prose Edda, magical Gungnir arrives in the hands of the Odin by way of Loki, who makes a series of deals with some dwarves. (This story is also how Mjölnir is created and comes into Thor’s possession.)

Odin is said to enter the final battle of Ragnarök gripping Gungnir, whose powers enable a true shot, no matter the wielder.

Scholars have also noted a similarity between this Norse story and the Irish folk hero Cú Chulainn, who wielded a magical spear, Gáe Bulga. Cú Chulainn is affiliated with the Celtic god Lugh, who also had a powerful spear in his arsenal of weapons.
