Huginn and Munnin are presented sitting together on this black and white hand carved horn with the tails forming the Ansuz rune. A knotwork design adorns the top of the horn with the tip coiling almost to the end.
The raven is a common iconic figure in Norse mythology. The highest god Odin had two ravens named Huginn and Muninn ("thought" and "memory" respectively) who flew around the world bringing back tidings to their master. Therefore, one of Odin's many names was the "ravengod" (Hrafnaguð).
Ansuz is the symbolic expression of the life force, the breath of the world. This rune is associated with the most powerful Norse god Odin – the god of wisdom and sky, the father of other gods, the king of Aesir clan of gods. Through this rune the divine wisdom and power flows to the human world. As a rune of Odin it symbolizes communication, authority, creativity and arts – the expression of higher energies. It’s a rune of shamans and magicians who act in accordance with the spiritual reality.
You'll receive the horn in the images. Each carved horn is unique and is individually photographed. You won't receive a similar horn carved in the same way, you'll be receiving the one you see in the images.

Horns are by-products of the meat industry. Our horns are salvaged from this so instead of going to waste, they are cleaned, reconditioned and turned into a beautiful vessel to start a new life. Each is handmade and unique. All our horns are cleaned, sculpted and polished by our craftsman to a beautiful finish and are safe to drink from.
Please note, due to reflections, the horn appears to be lighter in the images than in real life.
