Lot 0013
  • Jewelry: Viking Sorcerer's Amulet
  • Date: 900 A.D.
  • Size: 1 inch
  • Material: Silvered bronze

    Stylized duck’s foot shape. Pierced, which required advanced casting skills. Two distinct segments with a central bar to the upper end the lower, opened, undoubtedly with spiritual significance. A burial at Viden Denmark contained the body of a woman of wealth and status buried with henbane seeds, which have hallucinogenic properties and a wand as well as other objects. From these, it was concluded that she was a seeress or sorceress. The grave contained a necklace hung with three duck’s feet pendants very similar to this.
