The Vegvisir has been called the Viking compass and been described as a wonderful symbol of navigation and protection. The word “Vegvisir” itself means Wayfinder” or “signpost”.

Vegvisir or vegvísir was the name of the ancient Viking compass which was pretty mythical. The word can be pronounced as “VEGG-vee-seer”. The word Vegvisir meant the pathfinder or the signpost. The most famous lines about this Vegvisir compass were that “If this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known”. By those words can we know the power of Vegvisir Viking compass.

The design of the Viking Vegvisir bore much resemblance to the Aegishjalmur which was also a magical symbol of protection. The eight different spikes presented the eight directions in our way.

Vegvisir was the symbol of guidance and protection as we can see from the words presented about it. Many warriors were believed to apply this symbol of Vegvisir onto their ships before they set sail and went on voyaging. Because as long as this Viking compass was carried alongside one person, he/she would never lose sight of land in the ocean. Moreover, this Viking compass Vegvisir would also guide them back home safe and sound.

It was said that the Vegvisir was always drawn on the Viking ships before they set sail because the Viking held a firm belief that the Vegvisir would guide them back home safe and sound.

Amulet made of moose antlers/bone.
Due to their strength and durability since ancient times, the horns/antlers of animals were used in the manufacture of weapons and jewelry.

Good shopping. Best regards Oksana.

Roman and Oksana live in Ukraine and love Viking culture and design! Roman carves amulets, knife handles and accessories from bone, antlers and horn, all shed naturally by the animals. Oksana takes care of the marketing and of running their shop on Etsy.

From Roman:
“My art is an integral part of my life. I do bone carving, mostly Viking style. In general, I can carve anything, but not all carving brings me pleasure and inspiration. The Viking history interests me and inspires me. I have been carving for more than 15 years and have sold my work to people in many different countries. I am very happy that I can share my art and my products far beyond my own country. Each new design in anything I make is a challenge. I love everything about my work. I never do anything I don’t like.”
