Odinn, Sleipnir, and the Valknut
Sleipnir was Odinn’s eight-legged horse. It was born from Loki when the trickster god transformed into a hare for tricking a giant and his magic horse.
He is probably depicted in the Gotlandic image stone at Tjängvide (G 110, c. 700-900 AD), which shows a warrior riding an eight-legged horse.
Another Gotlandic image stone at Tängelgårda, Lärbro (Gotland), depicts a warrior – arguably Odinn – in a horse, with a Valknut beneath.
The Valknut is a symbol found among many Germanic peoples in the Late Antiquity and Medieval Ages. The scholar Hilda Ellis Davidson suggested it has had a connection with Odinn.
Kurlandly offers a minimalist tee inspired by both image stones, depicting Odinn and his 8-legged horse with a Valknut beneath.
