Artist's description:

The Helm of Awe is a powerful protective symbol used by the Vikings for the purpose of protection from illness, and disease. In Norse mythology it is said that it is a symbol that was worn between the eyes that induces fear in your enemies, and to protect against the abuse of power. The Norse word Ægishjálmr, is translated in English “helm of awe” or “helm of terror.” The meaning of the name awe is to strike with fear and reverence; to influence by fear, terror or respect; as, his majesty awed them into silence.

One single thread (a few kilometers) goes continuously several thousand times from one nail to another. With multiple overlapping lines, there is an illusion of depth and color contrast.

I love working with clients. If you are interested in commissioning a piece, please contact me. Custom work can be made in several diameters, from 30cm(11.8") to 80cm(31.5").

Materials used:
