Hammer of the North by Wodenswolf Hammer of the North by Wodenswolf
Well, I was thinking about doing a Thor's Hammer in a pure knotwork style since a while. This one is thought to be carved in bone - lets see how much of the detail will be possible in a pendant of a reasonable size.
Tried to keep the knotwork as norse as possible and don't let it look too "celtic" like most of the contemporary Hammers unfortunately do...

The title is a tribute to my inspiration while working on this design - GRAND MAGUS new album "Hammer of the North" is certainly one of the best metal albums of the present - if not the best at all.

Btw. here's the realization of this design carved in bone:

great...I think you can achieve it...I have been very interested in creating my own Norse art for quite a while now, so through research and practice know what you mean about the fine line between Norse and Celtic aesthetics...obviously a Mjollnir needs to be symmetrical, but I find that Norse knotwork is generally 'looser', freer and less symmetrical, or only semi-symmetrical...
