Mano Fico Hand Amulet Pendant
Based on amulets on display in the Museum.
A symbol of strength and protection.
The Norse God Thor’s hammer was a weapon, but sagas also tell of its use to bless marriages, births and funerals. Thor also used his hammer to heal.
This amulet, based on a Viking necklace, is made of silver-coloured metal, and strung on a black cord so that it can be worn round the neck or wrist.
Approximately 3.5 cm (1.5″) tall and 4 cm (1.5″) wide.
