The Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror (Ægishjálmr) is an Icelandic magical stave. A physical object called "Helm of Terror" is referenced as one item Sigurd takes from the dragon Fafnir's hoard after he slays him in Völsunga saga.
An ancient Norse symbol that goes by a few names, the Helm of Awe, Aegishjalmur, Viking Compass, coming from the Viking era. The name Aegishjalmur is derived from the God of the ocean of Jotunheim, Aegir. Jotunheim is the land of the frost giants, one of the nine realms of Norse mythology. In the Poetic Edda, the Helm of Awe makes an appearance when the dragon Fafnir claims that he derives invincibility from bearing the symbol.
The Helm of Awe
I wore before the sons of men
In defense of my treasure;
Amongst all, I alone was strong,
I thought to myself,
For I found no power a match for my own.
In the Viking era, some would wear the symbol between their brows as a sign of strength in battle, believing, like the dragon Fafnir, that it would grant them victory in battle. The trident looking arms of the symbol are Z runes which symbolize protection and victory in battle. The Helm of Awe was also said to provide mental and spiritual protection as well as physical. The circle in the center is meant to symbolize the protection of those bearing the Helm of Awe.
This unique piece was handcast by me in my studio from solid stamped nickel free 925 Sterling Silver.
