Helm of Awe wall sticker -Viking symbol

Helm of Awe - Ægishjálmurinn - is an ancient Icelandic symbol of magic used for protection. This sign dates back to the time of settlement of Iceland and is known to have been used by the Vikings as protection against bad spirits, enemies and the anger of chieftains. Viking warriors going into battle would carry a temporary imprint of the symbol on the center of their forehead. The imprint was made by engraving a lead sheet with the magical sign and pressing the engraving against the skin. Then the following chant was made: “Fjon, I wash off my enemies, theft and anger of rich men.” The Vikings believed that they were thereby endowed with protection, supernatural power and courage to defeat their enemies.

Ægishjálmur

Íslenskur galdrastafur ætlaður til verndar. Stafurinn er frá tímum landnáms á Íslandi og var upphaflega notaður af víkingum gegn illum vættum, óvinum, yfirgangi eða reiði höfðingja. Þegar haldið var til orrustu báru þeir galdrastafinn á sér með því að rista hann í blýplötu og þrýsta honum á ennið, milli augnanna, þannig að táknið þrykktist á hörundið. Því næst var svohljóðandi formáli þulinn: „Fjón þvæ ég af mér fjanda minna rán og reiði ríkra manna.“ Við þetta töldu víkingarnir sig öðlast takmarkalausa vernd, kraft og hugrekki til að sigrast á fjandmönnum sínum.
