The Grounds of the Asylum: Saint Rémy, France- Vincent van Gogh,  1889 Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Centre, Los Angeles, CA

Sucellus was a major Gaulish deity associated with the underworld, whose attributes include his wolf-skin garment, a mallet or hammer (now missing from his upraised hand), and a small jar called an "olla." This statuette is the earliest and finest of any known Sucellus image. The portrayal is reminiscent of Classical Greek style, and he resembles the Greek hero Heracles. The statuette was excavated from the "lararium" (household shrine) of a Roman house in France.

A Viking penny with an image of Thor’s hammer with a “Hand of God” resting on top on the reverse, and a drawn bow and arrow (possibly a misrepresentation of a ship) on the front. Cast out of silver. Made in 920 at the mint of Regnald, the Viking king at York. Currently held at the British Museum
