The Helm of Awe, also known as Aegishjalmur or Viking Compass, is a mysterious and powerful symbol in Norse mythology. Described in one of the poems in the Poetic Edda, this symbol was worn by the terrifying guardian dragon of cursed treasure known as Fafnir. In the poem, much of Fafnir’s strength and invincibility is attributed to this symbol worn between his brows, and many Norse warriors would follow in his stead wearing this symbol to grant them the dragon’s ferocity. In addition to the legend, each arm of the Helm of Awe resembles the Old Norse Z rune, which symbolized protection and victory in battle.
The Nordic runes of Elder Futhark are fabled to be discovered by Odin the All-father when he hung himself from the world tree Yggdrasil in his daring bid to gain wisdom through sacrifice. Each of these runes are claimed to have mystical beneficial properties, and are closely associated with Norse magic, religion, and poetry.
