Steamy Raimon comes to us from Las Vegas and ads a new element to our gallery: Viking-style drinking horns!  Each one-of-a-kind horn is hand-carved and painted with traditional Norse writing and symbols to give it an authentic Viking feel.  Each horn is sealed with wax to make it a functional drinking horn as well as a beautiful work of art!

Steamy Raimon

Steamy Raimon

This piece is made from natural bull horn, imported from Northern Europe, and fitted with a removable leather strap with copper fittings for easy carrying.  This drinking horn is completely functional, having been sealed with beeswax to enable it to carry large quantities of mead, beer and/or wine.  The carvings, featuring The Midgard Serpent crossing itself in a traditional knot fashion and the words “Drink with the Gods” in both English and Elder Futhark Runes (old Norse) are hand carved and highlighted with red oil paint.  The Midgard Serpent in Norse mythology is a huge serpent under the sea that surrounds the entire Earth and is often depicted as a dragon on the bows of Viking ships.  This horn is a fine collector’s item or gift for the lover of Scandinavian heritage and lore (information provided by Steamy Raimon).

This drinking horn, also one-of-a-kind, is hand-carved and painted on natural ram’s horn.  The carvings depict Elder Futhark (old Norse) runes and symbols of dedication to the Norse gods Odin and Tyr.  A sealing of beeswax makes this horn capable of carrying a significant quantity of liguid (traditionally mead, beer or wine) and is similar to those historically used by Norse shamans for ceremonies and rituals (Information provided by Steamy Raimon).
