A symbol comprising three interlocked triangles, the Valknut is one of the most enigmatic symbols connected with Norse mythology. The symbol has been found on a number of memorial stones and rune stones from the Viking Age. It also appears on a number of Germanic objects, such as cremation urns of the Anglo Saxons. However, the term ‘Valknut’ used to describe the symbol is a modern Norwegian invention, evolving from the combination of Old Norse words, ‘Valr’ meaning slain warriors and ‘knut’ meaning knot.
Some theories connect it with reincarnation and consider it a talisman against evil. The nine sides or nine points of the three triangles are associated with the Nine Worlds of the Norse mythology. Interlinking of the three triangles is symbolic of inter-connectedness of the 3 realms of heavens, earth, and hell.

As good as I hoped for. The ebony finish option was darker than I expected, but this gave it a generous helping of mystery, which in my case is a bonus. I even got photos of the work in progress, which was fun. Would buy again!
