Vegvisir Wolf Pendant
The wolf has played a crucial part in the age of Vikings and across Norse Mythology.
A few examples of the significance of the wolf are:
Fenrir [pronounced FIN-reer] is a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology. It is the father of the wolves Sköll and Hati Hróðvitnisson, is a son of Loki, and is foretold to kill the god Odin during the events of Ragnarök, but will in turn, be killed by Odin's son Víðarr. You can read more about Fenrir's mythology here.
Geri and Freki
Geri and Freki both meaning "the ravenous" or "the greedy one" are two wolves accompanied the god Odin. You can read more about this here.
Sköll and Hati
Sköll and Hat are wargs, where Sköll chases 2 horses that drag chariots which contain the sun. Hati is said to chase Máni, the moon. During Ragnorak, Sköll and Hati succeed. You can read more about the pair here.
The word warg typically means wolf, but in particular that of an evil one. Typically Fenrir, Sköll and Hati are depicted as wargs. You can read more about this here.
A Vegvísir (Icelandic 'sign post' or 'wayfinder') is an icelandic magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. The symbol is attested in the Huld Manuscript, collected in Iceland by Geir Vigfusson in 1880 (but consisting of material of earlier origin).
