David Oscarson | Valhalla Collection
.
The Valhalla Collection is the ninth in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition writing instruments. Produced in three color variations, each is limited to production of 88 pieces (combining fountain pens and rollerballs). From the Bronze Age to medieval times, Viking mythology was the religion of Scandinavia. Legends of the Vikings are present in most cultures of the world today. Valhalla (Valhöll) literally translated means “Hall of the Slain” and is in essence a Viking heaven into which Viking warriors pass upon leaving this life and spend all day gaming and fighting one another in battle. The dead and wounded are all healed, so they can spend the night feasting. In Valhalla, the Nordic Trinity of gods prevails: Odin, Thor and Frey. Odin, ‘All-Father’ lives throughout all ages ruling his kingdom absolutely. He fashioned Heaven and Earth and is also credited with creating Man and giving him an immortal spirit. Odin is also the patron god of poetry and one of his poems slithers in the form of a serpent in high relief on the cap of the Valhalla Collection and reads ‘he who would read the sacred runes is wise to waste no words’. Odin’s name is the basis for our modern day Wednesday (Odinsdag). Thor is the God of Thunder… guardian of the world – both of gods and men. His mighty hammer Mjöllnir is a short-handled weapon (the dwarf who forged it was interrupted in his work by a gnat stinging him on the eyelid). It is with this weapon that Thor maintains the stability of the world and keeps forces of chaos in check. Thor’s name is the basis for our modern day Thursday (Thorsdag). Frey is the god of fertility. He is the noblest of gods. He controls rain and sunshine and the natural increase of the earth and the good fortunes of men. Frey was revered as the divine ancestor of their kings. (His twin sister, Freyja, is the most excellent of the goddesses and was the mistress of Odin for a time. Her name is the basis for our modern-day Friday.) In contrast to the crude art of the Viking era, the Valhalla Collection is portrayed in the technical expertise of Guilloché engraving and the artistic mastery of Hard Enamel. The Collection incorporates three levels of Guilloché and three colors of translucent and opaque hard enamel on each Collection piece. The fountain pen is enhanced with an 18kt gold nib, available in M, F and B. Cartridge/converter fill.
