Sigurd Viking Helmet
By Tom Banwell
This ceremonial viking helmet is named after an epic Norse hero Sigurd. As told in the Volsung Saga, Sigurd battles and kills the dragon Fafnir and bathes in his blood, gaining invulnerability. Sigurd roasts Fafnir's heart so that his master Regin may eat it, but in doing so he burns his finger. He sticks his finger in his mouth, tasting the dragon's blood thus gaining the power to speak to birds.
