There’s a movie called Ragnarok, the title page takes the name and melts into the Runes, that’s all I remember about the movie but it set me to thinking. So I searched Vikings and after falling in love with the Viking boat in Oslo, Norway, this shawl just flooded into my head. I saw Celtic braids, dragons that were carved into the boat and texture. This crescent shaped shawl is the shape of the boat and will have the nails, wood beads, as well as the various colors that are found in different areas of the ship and shore. We can even put our shields out (mussels) and let the arrows fly.
