Wares with history

Th Victorious Christ which is seen on the picture, is a reproduction of a piece of silver jewelry found in an excavation near the town of Kirke Hyllinge

It shows the crucified Jesus Christ, but rather than being hurt and suffering, he looks strong and victorious. This motive is known from other places in Denmark as well and and is characteristic for the transition from Viking Age to Medieval Age, which took place in Denmark in the 11th and 12th century AD.

Be aware: The Webshop does not have an english translation, and is there in danish.
