MIDGARDSORMR Viking Bronze Bracelet. This viking bracelet with two heads of viking Sea Dragon Jörmungandr is made of hand twisted bronze. The motive is based on Migration Period golden bracteates, Vendel era helmet plates and Germanic Iron Age bird-shaped brooches, e.g. from Uppsala, Valsgärde, Sutton Hoo.
According to Norse mythology a water snake called Midgardsormr, or Jörmungandr (meaning “a gigantic beast”) poses a great threat so Odin throws him into the ocean. But the serpent grows so large that it is able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail. During Ragnarök the beast causes a deluge resulting in submersion of the world. Afterward, the world resurfaces anew.
