Large Tree of Life Carved Drinking Horn
This drinking horn is engraved with a Yggdrasil, or tree of life design.
In Viking mythology, Yggdrasil is a giant ash tree that cradles the nine realms of the cosmos. Located in Asgard, the realm of the gods, the branches and roots of Yggdrasil connects and supports all of creation. The sacred tree is the tree of life, evergreen, connecting heaven and earth representing the cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth.
The tree of life is connected with the destiny of the cosmos, the creator of the world and observer of all of creation. Yggdrasil represents the interconnectedness of the world of gods, humans, and nature. After the battle of Ragnarok almost all beings will perish, and the cosmos will be reborn. Yggdrasil will survive and the remaining survivors hiding in the Yggdrasil as well as the few gods who survive will emerge to start the new cycle of existence.
The total capacity of the drinking horn is approximately 400-500mL, but please be aware as a natural product, capacity will vary. Each horn is smoothly polished and finished with a water proof food safe epoxy.
We recommend coating your horn in beeswax to prolong the use of your horn.
The horn shown is an example, of the style of horn. Due to both the natural variations in horns and the handmade quality, each horn is unique in its curvature and colour tone and maybe a mixture of yellow, brown, white, cream, black and clear in colour.
This drinking horn is made by Lord of Battles who are an official supplier of the Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom TV series and crafted the drinking horns, cups and tankards shown in these series.
Horn stands are available separately.
