Viking Raven Arm Ring - Brass
Viking Raven Arm Ring | Solid Brass Raven Head Bracelet
Whether the Raven is perceived as a good or bad omen in Nordic mythology heavily depends on the particular circumstances. Ravens are generally associated with Odin, and if this is what you associate ravens with, then you will most likely view them as a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. However, ravens were also associated with death by some, since they would appear on the battlefield to pick on the bodies of fallen warriors. It is also believed that they assisted the Valkyrie in transferring the spirits of the dead to Valhalla. However, despite all these different perceptions, when it all boils down, the raven was generally considered to be a noble, but extremely enigmatic creature.
