The Valknut, which translates to "slain warrior" is a prominent yet still mysterious symbol left by the Vikings. It was often found in association with Odin, who was the god of war and death, and also oversaw Valhalla.
It was thus inferred that the Valknut was a symbol of the transition of warriors from life to death and back again. For it is said that when Ragnarok begins, the valiant warriors of Valhalla will be called back to fight at the side of the gods.
Thus, the Valknut can be said to represent brave warriors who performed feats of valor and sacrifice for the greater good.
The Valknut symbol in this piece is surrounded by oak leaves and acorns design.
