Relic

December 15, 2008

From the a mudbank deep within a Greenland fjord hails this pin, a remembrance of early world travelers, a friend lost, a Viking outpost slowly dying out…..

dsc_8873This pin is made of bronze for the hull, and sterling for sail. The hull is shaped and carved of thick bronze, filed thinner at the keel and stems. One end is sculpted into the feared dragon’s head, and the stern is carved into the tail.

At one point the Vikings traded and warred all over Europe, deep into the Mediterranean, and all the way into North America, via Ireland, Iceland and Greenland.

This is a one of a kind pin, 1 5/8″ long, signed and dated. Made by Tom Curran, 12/15/2008
