A large Valknut engraved with runes serves as the backdrop for a smaller Valknut enclosed in a circle, giving the pendant a sort of repeating, or fractal, effect. The repetition of the shapes seems to strengthen the power of the symbol, while the circle, a symbol of infinity, creates a nice, contrasting visual effect. The backside has a rustic, hammered finish.
The word "valknut" is a modern Norwegian word that means "knot of those fallen in battle" and is associated with the god Odin, the transition from life to death, and back again, and has also been used to signify honor and bravery.
The Elder Futhark is the oldest form of the runic alphabets. The word "rune" itself comes from the old Nordic word for "secret" and the runes are thought to have been more than just an alphabet - they were thought to have mystical connotations or powers.
