And yes, I was constantly drooling as I strolled through the museum. I must admit that It was hard to inhibit the urge to touch the Oseberg ship and feel all the old energies close at hand. xD But as the well-mannered viking queen that I am, I managed to behave.
Here is part two of my glorious museum visit! Behold!
With every viking item I passed, each cell in my earthly body screamed “pillage with pride!” The gods know that I wanted to.. But that my friends, would be an dishonorable act. Now, If you ever find yourself in Oslo – visit Kulturhistorisk Museum and behold all the glory there is to see!
I’ve spent some time visiting museums in Oslo lately. I was completely in awe because of these wood carvings that our ancestors have made. Unfortunately, these are from different stave churches (I am not a fan of christianity and how that religion was forced upon us..but that is a whole different story!) …Anyways, the carvings litterally had me drooling!
As you may expect, I took many more photos… Viking ships, viking bling and viking weapons to come!
By the way – my real name is Sól Geirsdóttir. I will use that from now on. Thank you so much for the nice comments that you guys have left lately. I truly appreciate it, and I will blog on a more frequent basis. This year has brought some new sparkly energy and I feel more vital and happy than ever.
I feel proud to present to you one of my favourite viking sites on the internet! *Tadaaaa* http://www.jelldragon.com
I wish to recommend this site as it has a very comprehensive collection of Viking age reproductions. The Jelling Dragon has been up and running since 1997 and it is now one of the most popular Viking re-enactment websites in the world. This awesome business sells primarily to Viking and Early Medieval re-enactors ,and living history enthusiasts. Followers of the Old Norse Ways can also find their supplies here, and successfully breathe life into the ancient lifestyle, in this modern time and age.
Ps – all photos are linked
~More amazing things to behold at the website itself (!)
As you may well know, I have a LOT of bling in my hair, and these are among my personal fav beads!(OOooh sharing one of my personal style secrets)They can stay in for days if used on top of a rubber band on a well braided braid (both in hair and beard)
The site even has its’ own section on Åsatru Pagan Supplies to help old souls with modern day revival of the Old Norse religion
Let’s show Thor some love by wearing the mighty Hammer! All chains and thorshammers are 100% solid 925 sterling silver. You can create your own necklaces, or puchase chains and hammers separately. A must have for all heathen souls .
Looking for drinking horns? Here you can find hand made ones from cleaned and polished cow horns. They are supplied unlined and are safe to drink from. You wouldn’t want to risk your life while devouring “the drink of the gods”, now would you? 😉
Drinking horn terminals can also be purchased here. If you are a man or woman of strong will, you can order custom made drinking horns. I am pleased to see that they even offer to stample runes (elder futhark!!!) into the rims. Ah, the glory! 😀
I often get asks in my inbox about where to buy viking shoes. Well, it seems that this site has it all. To see more costume pieces, crafts and accessories, please visit;
