The Lindby statuette is a bronze figure, discovered in Skåne, Sweden, dated from the Viking Age around the 11th century.
The figure, in a shelf position, wears a conical headdress. It is believed that it could represent Odin, also called Wotan or Woden, the main god of Norse mythology, as well as of some Etenan religions. This assumption is due to the fact that he has a certain asymmetry in his face, more specifically one of his eyes seems closed. Recall that according to Norse mythology, Odin had to sacrifice his left eye. From that self-inflicted mutilation derive the epithets of Bileygr ("one-eyed") and Báleygr ("missing eye") and, consequently, he was commonly represented with this characteristic feature.
It could be a small devotional statuette like those mentioned in the Old Norse sagas.
This reproduction is handmade of bronze and sizes about 9.5 cm high.
The Eyrarland Statue is a bronze statue of a seated figure from about AD 1000 that was recovered at the Eyrarland farm in the area of Akureyri, Iceland. The object is a featured item at the National Museum of Iceland. The statue may depict the Norse god Thor and/or may be a gaming-piece.
The statue was unearthed in 1815 or 1816 on one of two farms called Eyrarland in the vicinity of Akureyri.
If the object is correctly identified as Thor, Thor is here holding his hammer Mjöllnir, sculpted in the typically Icelandic cross-like shape. It has been suggested that the statue is related to a scene from the Poetic Edda poem Þrymskviða where Thor recovers his hammer while seated by grasping it with both hands during the wedding ceremony. Another suggestion comes from the archeologist Kristján Eldjárn, who has written that it could be the central piece from a set of hnefatafl, based on its similarities to a smaller whalebone figure discovered in Baldursheimur together with black and white gaming pieces and a die.
This reproduction is made of bronze and it's a bit oversized, compared to the original one, measuring about 8 cm high.
The Rällinge statuette is a seated figure in bronze, discovered in Södermanland, Sweden in 1904 and dated from the Viking Age around the 11th century. The figure, who wears a conical headdress, clasps his pointed beard and has an erect penis, has often been assumed to be the god Freyr. This is due to an 11th-century description of a phallic Freyr statue in the Temple at Uppsala, but the identification is uncertain.
It has also been suggested that the figure is a gaming piece, a flute player, and the god Thor blowing his beard to create wind. If it is the image of a god, it could be a small, devotional statuette of a type mentioned in Old Norse sagas. The object is in the collection of the Swedish History Museum.
This reproduction is handmade of bronze and sizes about 8 cm high (the original is 7 cm).
The Valkyrie from Hårby is a silver miniature dated to the Viking Age, discovered on the island of Funen, Hårby in Denmark in 2012. It is considered a rare visual representation of a woman with long hair tied in a ponytail, long dress or what could be an apron, with a shield on her left arm and a sword in her right hand. It is damaged in its lower part. Ancient texts depicted Valkyries holding shields and spears, but never swords, which is considered an exceptional find about the attributes of female warriors.
Most researchers agree that it is the image of a protective valkyrie, dísir or fylgjur, although it is not ruled out that it represents a real warrior woman. In view of its presence and quotations in many medieval texts, it is possible that it is testimony to the existence of women in Viking expeditions. It is kept in the National Museum of Denmark.
This reproduction is handmade of bronze and sizes about 7.5 cm high.
