Dragon Oseberg Arm Ring
This Viking arm ring has two dragon heads heads at each end, connected by a braided band. The Dragon head is modelled after the famous dragon head of the Viking ship burial of Oseberg (Norway) and the band is inspired by the Gotland Hoard.
The Oseberg style lasted most of the 9th century and appears in some Viking religious iconography. Its main feature is the gripping beast motif and sinuous animal forms. Paws grip borders, the neck of the creature, other creatures or other parts of its body. The gripping beast must have echoed something in the culture of Viking art as it stood fast for a good 150 years.
The band is hand made by braiding wire which then is fused together though the annealing process making it more flexible and easier to adjust than a cast arm ring.
This beautiful arm ring is made out of solid bronze and then has been plated in real silver.
