Hand Carved Serpent Drinking Horn
This drinking horn was hand carved in a traditional Vikiing Age art style by Sigurbodi in Iceland. It features a piece Nordic knotwork with the head of a serpent, which Sigurboði accented with black ink alongside the natural colours of the horn.
Serpents of Viking Age art most likely reflect characters within the mythology, such as the world serpent Jormungandr and the beastly Nidhogg.
Material & Make

When cleaning, please do not use soaps/detergents or a dishwashing machine. Hand washing with lukewarm water and a gentle scrub will keep your horn clean and functional for many years to come!

However, his specialty with handcraft applies to horns, which he has been carving for almost a decade in the Viking Age art styles familiar to so many.
