This is a Norse animal brooch from the 9th century, making it over 1200 years old. It was discovered in Vestfold, Norway and represents an unknown, possibly even fantastical animal. The style of it is pure to the Norse artistic tradition, and it has a vigor in its design that is admirable. I love the twisting knot-like shapes, so much like the Celtic tradition of the same times. Amazing find, this. by jean
