Woden's Knot | Enamel Pin
This enamel pin design by The Saxon Storyteller features a 3 pointed knot to celebrate the god Woden, whose name appears in daily life through the origin of the word "Wednesday."
Woden was widely known as a god of war to the early Medieval cultures of Northern Europe, but he was important also as a god of learning, of poetry, and of magic. The king of the Anglo-Saxon gods was Woden, and whilst it is an oversimplification to say he was a German version of the Scandinavian god Odin. However, he did have two pet wolves and a horse with eight legs.
Material & Make
Our pins are crafted in solid metal with enamel detailing and a sturdy pin for security of closure and longevity.
