Ring of the Úlfhéðnar - real title but DA doesn't allow those characters.
The Úlfhéðnar: Berserkers, men clad in wolf skins. I took it literally.
Ring of the Ulfhednar by sarahfinnigan. Is one of those pieces that goes above and beyond technical skill when bringing out a unique perspective and engaging piece. Beautiful contrast with superb hue's and saturation of color! A beautiful piece to truly admire. (
really nice piece ^^ Love the tales of the Ulfhednar that my older relatives would tell me of as I grew up the times I met them ^^ (my fathers family originates and still lives in one of the most northern coastal areas in Norway where most of the legends of the ulfhednar i have found originates from) really good looking piece and great detail ^^
PS. sorry can't just let it go ^^ Berserk is actually a name for the later version (and a collective name for men like the berserks and the ulfhednar) but actually berserk derives from the words ber and serk that loosly means bearcloth wich wich refers to the berserks of other parts of the world Ulfhednar where a proud band of brothers who stuck true with their own title where they adorned theirselves in wolfskins and fought as it is said "with the sly cunning brutality of the wolf, but with weapons of men, yet they where not fully men."
little side note ^^ I don't mean that you are wrong in any part I just keep my family tales and history close to the heart ^^
Berserkers actually had a reason for their ferociousness, according to historians. Some say they bit their shields, killed their own in a mindless rage, picked up hot sauna stones and ran at the enemy so hard they fell on the ground, dead due the exhaustion. Sound any familiar?
