What is it?
A face pendant found by Rygene Metal Detecting society. This pendant is in a family of face pendants, found all over the viking world. We see them in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the UK. Following a tradtion which goes all the way back to the early iron age, the earliest depcition of these faces seems to be blowing wind. With the healing capabilities of breath and how Odin himself have breathed life into humans, this is not that far fetched an depiction. The later versions of these face pendants has equally a focus on the mouth and the movement of the jaws.
