One of a kind unique hand engraved clay tile of a reproduction of the ancient Icelandic Runic Compass, The Vegvisir!
I hand rolled this tile from high fire clay, dried it for several days and etched the design into it (no moulds used), then fired it for several hours, glazed and back in the kiln for another firing. The tile measures a little over 4" x 4" x 3/16" (10.5 cm x 5mm). there is a metal hook on the back of the tile so it can be hung. Can also be put on a small easel to add decor to a table, living space or used as a centrepiece in a mosaic tiling project.
**Unique creation only one exists. The tile is hand cut and will vary in overall thickness and size since I do not use moulds. You will receive what is pictured. Colour may vary from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
It is a Norse protection symbol, which has a deep meaning. The Icelandic word literally means ‘guidepost’ or ‘direction sign’. In modern popular culture, the Vegv?sir is often called Runic Compass or See the Way. It is often associated with the Viking Age, which is not correct: this symbol is from the 17th-century Icelandic grimoire called Galdrab?k (‘magic book’). The origin of this type of witchcraft is difficult to ascertain: to some extent, it derives from medieval mysticism and renaissance occultism, but also has a few connections with the ancient Germanic runic tradition. Vegv?sir was drawn on one’s forehead with blood to prevent a person from getting lost.
