|My Minecraft Resource Pack "DreamCraft"!|
|I'm very creative, I love making things, and I love the Zelda games. I'm a gamer in general and a bit of a perfectionist. I always try to do things myself at least once, and more often than not end up with a new skill. I've dabbled in webdesign back in the day, but I'm a visual thinker and no programmer, so I stick to what I grew up with- making things with my hands.|
Ægishjálmr or the “Helm of Awe” is a powerful symbol of Protection and Strength in Norse cultures, dating back for eons.
This depiction the Helm may look simple, but it’s actually very intricate; written out in Elder Futhark runes are various words and names through this piece.
The circle it’s self says “Ægishjálmr” three times over.
Inside the circle are names of the Norse Gods:
Outside the circle, the “arms” say varði and styrkr, the old norse words for “protect” or “protection”, and “strength”.
In the outer curves are written in ancient norse, eight of the names of the nine realms:
Notes: – Niðavellir and Svartálfaheimr are/are in the same realm according to most legends, and I follow the legends which state that Helheimr is IN Nifelheimr, and thus opted to exclude Helheimr so the other 8 would fit.
At the ends of each branch, for sake of the construction of the proper helm, sits Algiz, the protection rune it’s self.
The three cross arms stay intact through this, with the rest of the branch arms represented in spots to “connect” the pieces.
