    ACTUALLY A MODERN ARTS PROJECTS AND IS FOR SALE ON ETSY! "Viking Burial Mask - Dating from the 10th Century, this is believed to be a relic from the tomb of an unknown Viking warrior. The form is based primarily on the pelvis of a bull, which represents strength and virility. The spinal column and rib cage, which protect the warrior's eyes, are those of a young wolf. The ram's horns give the warrior means to ward off the demons who might attack him on his journey after death."
