@Historystudentlife If you were to recommend a work of Viking art from this period to a curious internet stranger, what would it be?
Also welcome to the fediverse. That too :3
@detondev I would recommend first going to see the exhibition on the Viking Age in The Museum Of Cultural History in Oslo (their artwork and artifacts are available online). Seeing the Vikings Ship museum in Oslo (it's a part of the Museum of Cultural History) may also be interesting, especially to see their decorations of ships.
The image shows the animal head from Oseberg, thought to represent the first era in Viking Art.
