Boar Amulet Enamel Pin
The boar was a powerful symbol amongst the Germanic people who settled in Britain during the 5th Century. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was a symbol of strength and virility and its image has been known to adorn their helmets.
This enamel pin designed by The Saxon Storyteller celebrates the power of an iconic creature that appears several times in the archaeological record (such as the Sutton Hoo helm and the Staffordshire hoard helmet) and even in literature like the iconic Beowulf poem.
He has also chosen to incorporate runes on the body of the boar which are from the Germanic Iron age and are an early runic charm.
