The giantess Hyrrokin on Flickr.The Hunnestad Stone from Skåne, Sweden. This image stone (DR 284 - Hunnestad 3) shows an animal ridden by a woman who has two snakes in her hands. She appears to be the wolf-riding giantess Hyrrokkin who helped the Æsir push Balder’s ship into the sea during his funeral. Lund, 2014

New band, found in Pien in Poland, second half of X to first half of XI century. The pattern strongly resembles what is now a popular tablet woven pattern fragment of a brocaded band pattern B 22/23 from Birka. I suspect this band is not tablet woven, but heddle/loom woven. Made of silk, with additional weft of silk thread wrapped with gold foil. No data on sizes yet, we have to wait for the official publication.

Sigurd is a legendary hero of traditional Norse religion, as well as the central character in an Icelandic saga. The earliest extant representations for his legend come in pictorial form from 7 runestones in Sweden, most notably the Ramsund carving (c. 1000) & the Gök Runestone (11th century). As Siegfried, he would become one of the heroes in the German epic poem Nibelungenlied, & in Richard Wagner's operas Siegfried & Götterdämmerung.
