about a picture on “The Viking Way” Facebook group. I made this version with
definitions you see below this text.
Vegvísir is a post-medieval Icelandic symbol. It only survive in the Huld Manuscript from 1880. The text going with the symbol in the manuscript is "if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known".
Around the Vegvísir a sentence from Tolkiens poem “All that is gold does not glitter” written in Elder Futhark. The text says: “Not All [those] Who Wander Are Lost”. The text in the brackets are only in the poem, not on the picture.
The ravens seem to be a modern design and the tree design is properly inspired by the trees on “The Gate of Moria” as I see it, but is clearly Ask Yggdrasil with its 3 roots.
