This is a real solid bronze hand-crafted antique finish pendant and handmade genuine leather bracelet. The pendant is in the shape of the rune Tiwaz or Teiwaz with a Celtic pattern motif and two raven heads on both ends.
The t-rune is named after god Tyr or Tiw in Norse. The legendary Norse warrior Tyr lost his hand in a battle with a giant wolf Fenris while fighting to save his people. Also Tuesday is named after Tiw. The meanings of Tiwaz or Teiwaz are sound leadership, victory in battle, success in competition and personal sacrifice. Tiwaz runic number is 17.
Runes are a Norse alphabet developed around 200 BCE, from characters used for magical purposes. According to Norse myth, the alphabet was discovered in a vision by the god Odin as he hung upside down and wounded for nine days on the World Tree Yggdrasil. There are three commonly known runic alphabets: the ‘elder’ and ‘younger’ Futhark (futhark being the transliteration of the first few letters of that alphabet), the Anglo-Saxon futhork, and the Danish ‘short twig’ or script alphabet.
In Celtic culture the ravens are symbols of wisdom and knowledge. “There is wisdom in a raven’s head.” – Gaelic Proverb
“To have a raven’s knowledge” is an Irish proverb meaning to have a seer’s supernatural powers. The raven is considered to be one of the oldest and wisest of all animals. Ravens were the favorite bird of the god Lludd, the Celtic god of artists and artisans.
The leather bracelet is hand stamped embossed with the Celtic motif pattern and hand-stitched on both edges. The leather bracelet full length measures 9" inches or 230 mm.
The bronze pendant is the same on both sides and ox finished for antique look. Pendant size is 1.25" by .80" inches or 31 mm by 20 mm.
