Thor's hammer lamp - Skånehammaren

Wooden lamp designed with Skånehammaren

Skånehammaren from Sweden – an iconic find from the Viking Age!

Our wooden lamp is based on the archaeological find of the Skånehammaren pendant – Thor’s hammer – found in Skåne, Sweden.

This unique hammer was made as a necklace and carries many secrets. Most people know that the hammer stands for the god Thor. But there is so much more in this hammer.

Welcome to take part in historical interpretations of Skånehammaren by our fire.

This lamp is a fine piece of art even without the light being on, but when you turn it on the magic happens right in front of your eyes.

It is made entirely of aged oak wood with beautiful grain.

The grain is exposed and highlighted by brushing the wood and giving it a 3D look. The wood is stained with Bismarck Brown stain made by us according to an ancient recipe and protected with 3 layers of hot beeswax. The hammer motif is made in the bas-relief technique and is illuminated by LEDs placed discreetly around the perimeter of the frame. Thanks to this, every detail of the relief is highly exposed, and the play of light gives it a magical character. The light of the lamp is very pleasant and cozy because we can only see the light reflected from the relief.

You can easily take this lamp outdoors and use it wherever you want. Take it out into the garden, on the trip or to the campfire when you are out in nature. Use it at blots, ceremonies or other holidays and make your occasion a little extra magical.

Use it together with a regular USB power supply and experience the lamp’s magical light in the evening and at dawn.

The lamp is not made to withstand water or rain.

The lamp is powered by 5V DC, which means that it can be connected to the USB port of any device or to a telephone power supply. A USB cable is included. LED lifetime is over 5000 hours, but even after this time, the LED strip can be replaced, because the lamp can be easily disassembled and assembled back.
