Genuine handcrafted 925 Sterling Silver Kolowrat pendant, also known as the Spinning Wheel. This is a double sided pendant, with the Kolowrat symbol made out of war axes. Included with the amulet comes a comfortable black cord for ideal wear of this piece.
Kolowrat, The Spinning Wheel, is an early Slavic symbol of the sun and the sun deity Dazbog. Kolowrat was overwhelmingly used as a charm for good luck and happiness, as the sun and Dazbog were praised for bringing joy, strength, and protection from evil into everyday life. For many warriors and sages this was also a symbol of eternal life, representing the cyclical nature of life, how after every dawn there is a sunrise, and how after every death there is a new life.
An axe was every Viking’s trusty tool and often a reliable weapon of choice. When it came to managing and repairing their ships, longboats, made in their entirety of wood, axes were a must have for every one of those ancient naval warriors. When on land, axes were used to fell trees for fires, building basic defenses, or ship repairs. Versatile for the Viking lifestyle, this weapon and tool was always on hand while on a journey, ready to be used for both felling trees and foes alike.
