Fenrir (pronounced FEN-rir; Old Norse Fenrir, He Who Dwells in the Marshes) is the most infamous of the many wolves in Norse mythology. Fenrir is the son of Loki and the giantess, Angrboda, and brother to Hel, the goddess of the underworld. The Fenrir wolf was at first kept peacefully in Asgard but when the gods realized how big Fenrir was growing on a daily basis they decided to chain up in order to protect themselves, but he broke every chain. Viking Wolf Legend has it that Fenrir will escape at Ragnarok and kill Odin after which Odins son, Vidar, will kill Fenrir. This contrasting depiction of the wolf in Norse mythology brings about a conflicted perception of this majestic creature. But what is undeniable is that the wolf is a symbol of power, intelligence, wisdom, and ferocious tenacity. The hand polished drinking horn is stunning. An engraving of Fenrir is on the front with a beautifully crafted brass band with Celtic weave lines the lip. The tip of the horn has a genuine brass crocodile design. These horns are hollowed out and smoothed on the inside and coated with a food safe sealant. What makes these horns so unique is the all the differences in size, shape, and color. This verifies the authenticity of the piece. *Please wash with a gentle detergent and polish with vegetable oil to keep it from drying out. And from time to time you will want to use beeswax to coat the inside to keep from cracking and the inside drying out. Natural imperfections may be visible on this item. Please remember this is a natural item and each piece is unique.
