The Magic Symbol

One interesting thing for a tourist to do in Oslo is visit the Viking Ships museum, where you get to see, er, Viking Ships, but also some of the fancy stuff that was discovered with the boats. There’s a particular pot lid with this magic symbol on it. My niece sketched it for me, and wrote, “The magic symbol on the viking lid. It took less than two minutes to reproduce.”

I am currently investigating this symbol, exploring its meanings, its portents, its possible usage and its potential power. When I conclude these studies I will of course mention nothing of it in this blog, as I will keep all significant and dangerous information to myself. But I just thought I’d stick it up here on the internet to attract other cognoscenti, those in-the-know, holders of secrets, keepers of flames, and the like.
