Raven Fibulas

Celtic, Norse, Viking or Odin's Raven Fibulas

The raven played a significant role in Norse culture. The raven appears frequently in artwork and metalwork. Ravens were commonly portrayed on banners flown by Scandinavian chieftains and kings during the Viking era, and the tradition continued into Norman culture, as portrayed in the Bayeux tapestry.

Odin's Ravens (top left)
From the medieval Icelandic historian Snorri Sturluson:

"Two ravens sit on Odin's shoulders, and bring to his ears all that they hear and see. Their names are Huginn and Muninn. At dawn he sends them out to fly over the whole world, and they come back at breakfast time. Thus he gets information about many things, and hence he is called Rafnagud (raven-god). As is here said:

Huginn and Muninn
Fly every day
Over the great earth.
I fear for Hugin
That he may not return,
Yet more am I anxious for Munin."
