This House Shield is Aegishjalmur, or the “Helm of Awe”. Aegishjalmur is invincibility in battle, but also a major protection symbol that addresses all levels of existence; all 3-D directions including up and down, in and out, each angle, side-to-side, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, seen and unseen. It’s an eightfold radiating rune, the Algiz rune, projecting outward in all directions on a 3-D platform.

Algiz/Elhaz was and still is traditionally seen as the horns of the Elk, spreading and protective.

It is truly a powerful energy to help attract potent protective energy to anyone’s home!


Holding to the traditions of my Norse, Dane and Helvetian genetics I enjoy creating House Shields or Rune Shields. These are 1x17.75” laminated pine shields. Each slat of pine is cut and sanded, then glued to adjacent pieces, allowed to dry and then sanded again to create a round shield.

Once I layout the design I woodburn the shield. After the front and back are finished I apply numerous coats of water based polyurethane to protect the wood from exposure to elements. I use the water based poly because I don’t enjoy the toxic fumes of regular poly.

House or Rune Shields are created using ancient symbols from the peoples of Scandinavian, old Teutonic and Helvetian lineage. Sometimes along with the symbols runes from the 24 Elder Futhark are also placed on the shields as well as filler designs to tie the elements together.

Traditionally they are placed on a door or wall of a house or other building where gatherings take place, like a talisman, for protection or amplification of other energies from the natural elements found in this life; prosperity, health, friendship, fertility, happiness and so on.

Please note that though the shields are coated if they are exposed directly for long periods to time to rain and snow they will gray out. Mine are displayed on the front of my house under my porch roof away from direct water contact and they hold up great!
