*The Viking Axe was used on fields of battle by Viking warriors. The axe represents strength and bravery.
**In the sagas there’s a giant eagle perched on top of the world tree, Yggdrasil. Under the tree, gnawing on the roots is the serpent dragon Nidhögg. They hate each other and the squirrel Ratatoskr carry insults in between them.
***For Vikings the dragon head on the prow of the ship has been enough to scare away the sea monsters lurking in the depths. One of the dragons mentioned in the Norse sagas is Nidhogg - dragon/serpent who gnaws at a root of the world tree, Yggdrasil.
