A hand forged Viking charm, to ward off malicious and malevolent magic - especially Trolls !!
The TROLL'S CROSS is a strong protective symbol of the old Scandinavian (Viking) folklore, warding off evil Trolls, and other malevolent magics.
Also called a TROLLKORS, it's purpose is to protect the wearer, animals and homes, against evil in general. In particular, they are guaranteed to ward off evil Trolls - which are admittedly a big problem in Norse mythology. Unfortunately they seem to have no effect on Internet trolls
Believed to be the precursor of the old English tradition of hanging horseshoes on the outsides of buildings for protection.
Size: 17cm x 10cm approx.
A personal amulet version is also available.
