Ancient Viking pottery presented by Viking pots and pans is a great example of north pottery replicated by Artglina creative pottery studio. Valhalla is known meaning strongly associated with Vikings, Scandinavian sailors who came from tribes that inhabited the territory of such modern countries as Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. In different countries, they were called differently: Vikings, Normans, and Varangians. The Vikings traveled and conquered in the 8th-11th centuries. It is a surprising fact that the Vikings, harsh in disposition, unpretentious in everyday life, and accustomed to difficult conditions, created a unique cultural tradition.
The glorious history of the Vikings became one of the ideas for the Vikings: Valhalla heaven place where warriors get after death in battle. This is a story about the Vikings’ attempt to conquer England, the journey of the Scandinavian navigator and ruler of Greenland Leif Eriksson to America, and a dramatic story of love, enmity, and revenge against the backdrop of the spread of Christianity among the Vikings.
The Viking archetype is part of the history of the Ukrainian people. It was with the arrival of the Vikings that Kyiv stopped paying tribute to the Khazars and, after a successful campaign against Constantinople, signed an agreement with Byzantium. It can be considered the beginning of the statehood of Rus-Ukraine, as a foreign policy emerged and the principality expanded its influence to the rest of the surrounding lands.
Thus, the history of the Vikings is a real inspiration for artists of various genres of art. In Artglina studio this inspiration got realization in North Viking pottery.
