Enter The Vegvisir... Almost.

Enter The Vegvisir... Almost.
Just finishing up the last few details on this one, I'm deciding on a series of Futhark (runes for you flatlanders without beards) to add to the corner recesses. No New-Age hoaky bullshit, the real deal. In case you didnt know: (More pictures below)     Vegvisir:   The Vegvisir is of pure Northern Germanic, Old Norse origin to be precise, it has no equivalents in any other symbol, it is unique, mysterious and its exact age as a symbol has been lost due to Christian defilement and suppression, defiant Asatro folk bear this symbol increasingly. Thus it is necessary to establish its accurate definition and an understanding of its wider metaphorical uses, purely in direct accordance with its attested historical function.
