I have a super-short post today taking my lovely readers back to Iceland again, and the Saga Museum in Reykjavik.
I was rather pleased to see this young male character’s wax figure wearing a Thor’s hammer (Mjölnir) pendant on a cord.
Although the figure was turned away, so I couldn’t get the best photo of it, it looks a LOT like one of the Mjölnir pendants that I have too! (The one on a chain on the far left in the photo to the left.) I’m not sure if the one I have was based on an archeological example or not I’m afraid though.
(Look familiar? I originally blogged about these pendants in my post “Viking costume inspiration: Accessories: The Mjölnir” back in February.)
