Boar Warriors

  • £15.00

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 A4 print from the Saxon Storyteller is a re-imagining of one of the Torslunda plates depicting boar helmed warriors but the idea of the boar 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.

Printed on 250 gsm uncoated art board.

Size: A4
