The world tree or tree of life has deep symbolic significance in many ancient cultures and religions. In Norse mythology, the evergreen ash tree Yggdrasil is the world axis that connects the heavens, the earth, and the underworld.
As the embodiment of the entire cosmos or the whole of creation, this sacred tree symbolizes knowledge, life, decay, renewal, and the inherent balance of life – which can be seen in the fact that most representations of Yggdrasil do not change much when you rotate them by 180 degrees.
With this elegant bronze pendant, men and women alike can round off their garb in a beautiful manner, whether at medieval markets, Viking gatherings, re-enactment events, or simply in modern everyday life. Combined with a simple necklace or leather cord, this charming piece of jewellery is a true eye-catcher. Its surface is slightly convex, giving the tree a three-dimensional appearance.
This Viking jewel is often used as a protective amulet or talisman / lucky charm, which may help its wearers to evolve upward, and, at the same time, to strengthen the connection to their own roots.
A great gift for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and any occasion in between!
