The wolf, a very popular design in nordic iconography, it always fascinated mankind in all cultures, no matter if it´s Sköll and Hati, chasing sun and moon or Geri and Freki as Odhinn´s followers as the god of war and wrath. The Ulfhednir as "wolfskinned" Warriors proove as well the high respect and fear, people had and have for the wolf.
A mix of nordic and arabesque patterns.......
The Bamberg eagle finished as part of a whole sleeve. Also the eagle was very important to the ancients, in mythology an eagle sits on top of the world tree, making the weather, a falcon sitting between his eyes.
Also the roman legions had the eagle as their emblem.
