Until he fell in battle to the hero Sigurd, the dragon Fafnir used a symbol known as the Helm of Awe to protect himself. Because of this tale, Viking warriors often painted this symbol on their shields, as displayed by the Helm of Awe Viking Shield. This round wooden shield displays a stark white Helm of Awe against a field of brown. The center features a round shield boss made of 14 gauge steel, and the edges are reinforced with riveted steel. On the back is a bar for securely gripping the shield and a leather strap for keeping your arm in place. For any reenactment or other medieval event, the Helm of Awe Viking Shield is just what you need to complete your Norse warrior ensemble.
