Norse legend has it that the god Thor used his mighty hammer with special powers to protect the other gods and goddesses from the giants who were the forces of chaos. The magical hammer never missed its mark, could level mountains, and when thrown would boomerang back to Thor. Once, Thor killed and ate the goats that pulled his chariot and then brought them back to life using the magic of his hammer. In addition to being a mighty weapon, the hammer was also used to bless births, marriages and funerals, and for this reason the hammer symbol can be found on many grave stones up to 1300AD.
This Mjolnir pendant is also emblazoned with the valknut symbol, which is the 'knot of slain warriors' that signifies honor and bravery. The valknut is blended into a field of Celtic knots which are highlighted by a blackened background. The Mjolnir is crowned by a goat's head with large curling horns from which the pendant is hung. The goat's head commemorates Thor's goats and their resurrection, or it may also be a reference to Heidrun the legendary Norse goat whose mead/milk is the drink of warriors and the god Odin. The back is decorated with a hammered finish.
Because of its size and dramatic character, this pendant would also be appropriate for a man to wear.
