Another strong Talisman of protection, Mjölnir in this case depicted with the God and a representation of his goats, Tanngrisnir ("teeth-barer, snarler") and Tanngnjóstr ("teeth-grinder")
I chose this piece for the site store because of its strength. I like the way it looks, which creates a great vibe about it.
It comes with an option of 3 different cords/chains, so something for everyone.
In Norse mythology, Thor's Hammer, or as it it know, Mjöllnir is probably the most important, and best known symbol in this era.
Thor (old Norse for Thunder) the god of rain, storm and thunder. He is the son of Odin and the Earth Goddess, and was the God who guarded Asgard, the fortress of the Aesr Gods against the forces of chaos, known as the Jotun, or Giants. Thor was also the protector of Mankind on Midgard. Mjöllnir, meaning "Lightning, was Thor's primary weapon. However, it has been used as a symbol of Protection, Consecration and Blessing in ceremonies for millennia. As is often found painted or carved above doorways to protect entrances of homes and buildings.
Goat Symbol Relevance
Tanngrisnir ("teeth-barer, snarler") and Tanngnjóstr ("teeth grinder") are the goats who pull Thor's chariot. The Prose Edda tells of when Thor was hungry he once cooks two goats for sustenance. After this event Thor uses his hammer Mjölnir to resurrect them, and they have since drawn his chariot.
Further to the same Myth, when Thor stayed a night at the home of peasant farmers and shared with them his goat meal, one of their children, Þjálfi, broke one of the bones to suck out the marrow, resulting in the lameness of one of the goats upon resurrection. As penance, Thor maintains Þjálfi and his sister Röskva as his servants.
