Aegishjalmur, The Helm Of Awe, is one of the most powerful runes in Norse mythology. It contains eight spiked tridents that are defending the central point from the hostile forces surrounding it, which symbolizes protection and prevailing over enemies. This symbol was also associated with the power of serpents who paralyze their prey before striking.
The rune is inscribed over a metal crow skull. The crow symbolizes one of Odin’s crows: Hugin (thought) and Munin (memory) as the hairband aims to protect the wearer’s mind from ill influences.
