This incense dish measures 6 inches across and there are eight holes to place your incense on the top of the piece. This item makes a wonderful altar textile and addition to any existing altar space.
It is made of pine and finished in a black ebony stain. The edges on this piece have been routed out to give it a slightly more ornate look. On the top of it I have used a wood burning tool to engrave the entire Elder Futhark alphebet within the wood.
The Helm of Awe or Helm of Terror (Ægishjálmr) is an Icelandic magical stave. A physical object called "Helm of Terror" is referenced as one item Sigurd takes from the dragon Fafnir's hoard after he slays him in Völsunga saga. This stave is used for protection.
