This brooch is said to depict Skíðblaðnir - a two-headed ship in Norse mythology.
It was the fastest and second biggest ship in the mythological cosmos, and with its center mast and dragon heads on both sides, it was able to sail in any direction and always found wind in its sails. And if the owner had to cross over land, it could be folded up like cloth, small enough to fit into a pocket.
This item of the gods was made by the dwarves, called “Sons of Ivaldi” and gifted to Frey, after they were dared and tricked by Loki (who had to get out of trouble for pranking Thor´s wife Sif by cutting off her hair).
Whenever I feel lost, this is a symbol for me of being able to go where I want to be, to find my way again and to get some "wind in my sails".
The original brooch is dated to the early Viking age and was found on the island of Fyn, Denmark. Now the brooch is part of the collection of the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen.
