Bronze

This piece is a reproduction of a symbol carved on an XIth century runestone in Uppsala, Sweden.
The meaning of this symbol is highly debated. Some think it is a variant of the Valknutr, Knot of the Slain, closely linked to Odin (which is most certainly a modern interpretation). Other say it is a representation of the three roots of the World-Tree Yggdrasill, between which live the Norns ruling over Fate. And lastly, the interpretation we have kept so far says it is the three-pointed heart of the giant Hrungnir, who was defeated by Thor.
