  • Sale
  • Regular price £249.95


A light coloured horn that fades into drak tones at the tip. It has been Hand Carved to represent Jormungand, The Midgard Serpent  unwinding into a rich and detailed tapestry inspired by archaeological finds of the Viking age.

According to Norse mythology the God Odin threw the sea serpent into the ocean. The serpent grew so large that it was able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail. During Ragnarök the beast causes a deluge resulting in submersion of the world. Afterward, a new world resurfaces.

The top of the horn also presents a band of runes. The Elder Futhark runes are split into three aettir. Each is a subset of the runes that is associated with a different god and each of the runes have a different meaning or significance.

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.

Ethically sourced

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. They're hand crafted of natural materials (ox or cow horn) so are likely to present some marks from the previous life or crafting process. None have a perfectly smooth finish by the very nature of the items which adds to their rustic charm. Each is handmade, beautiful and unique. All our horns are cleaned, sculpted and polished by our craftsman to a beautiful finish and are safe to drink from.
