Flight of the valkyrie: the Viking figurine that's heading for Britain
Flight of the valkyrie: the Viking figurine that's heading for Britain. 800AD. The thumb-sized figurine is made of gilded silver, with some black niello inlay decoration. The valkyrie is armed with a double-sided Viking sword and a round shield, her hair neatly twisted into a long ponytail forming a loop, which would point to it likely being a pendant. Gorgeous stuff!
