Hand Carved Nordic Snake
The serpent can be found easily within ancient Nordic culture and tends to be associated with power. From the binding of Loki, where he is tortured with snake venom, to the death of Ragnar at the hands of King Aelle in a snake pit, there is a sense of finality surrounding this beast.
Many serpents in Nordic art may depict specific beasts such as Fafnir, Nidhogg, or Jormungandr.
