In the Norse faith, ravens are considered sacred, the most enigmatic ones are Huginn and Muninn, a pair of ravens that served as messengers to Odin, the All-Father.
They would whisper to him all the things they had seen and heard. Ravens, according to ancient beliefs, are birds of carnage and blood, but also of wisdom and intellect.
Therefore, this symbol represents both ferocity and enlightenment. The words "Huginn" and "Muninn" literally mean "thought" and "memory"
The Valknut symbol often appeared on picturesque memorial stones and on shipwrecks. Undoubtedly, the Valknut is one of the most fascinating and popular Viking symbols.
According to Norse beliefs, Odin, the god of death and war, would welcome in Valhalla (the Hall of Slain) the warriors fallen in battle.
