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.
Vegvisir, meaning that which shows the way, is an Icelandic compass rune for travelers and wayfinders to always find the right path or direction in their travels. In one of the manuscripts, it was claimed that the carrier of such sign will never lose their way in any storm or poor weather, and will always be able to find the road to their goal even if that road was previously unknown to them.
