Aegishjalmur by Tom Butler. The Helm of Awe, a type of rune stave, is magical spell of protection used by early Vikings. According to a number of legends, this apotropaic (protective) symbol, when worn between the eyes, was intended to confer invincibility in the wearer or instill fear in one’s enemies. The earliest mention of the aegishalmer is in the Eddas, although pictorial representations only date from around medieval times. Today, it is used as a charm of protection by Asatru believers.

It serves as a symbol of harmony, immutability, and all -knowingness. It symbolizes enlightenment, the true nature of reality, the union of relative and absolute truths, and the indestructibility of wisdom.The double dorje is often used as a stamp or seal and placed at the bottom of statues."
