Description

Vikings were great traders, but often they used the simple bartering system, a pig for a goat or three chickens for two geese. However they recognised that gold and silver were great tradeing commondities and also symbols of wealth and power, so they would loot villages and towns and churches and monasteries if they could find them. This was all carried back to their homeland and divided up amoung the raiders, with a percentage given to their liege, or Jarl for his protection. If a Viking died in the raid, his family would get his share of the loot.

This made the Vikings very motivated explorers and were master navigators and they traveled from Russia all around Europe and the English Isles down as far as Constantinople. Valuable artifacts were chopped up with axes and their artistic value was meaningless to the Vikings as their mineral worth was what mattered. A gold plate, no matter how beautifully inscribed, if too big to give to one person, would be split into pieces and shared that way.

This mould will cast a 40mm scale fully round Viking holding on his shoulder a chest of valuables. He is taking this back to his longboat. Such figures are essential to accurately show in any battle scene or diorama how Vikings behaved.

On average you should be able to cast 3 to 4 figures from a bar of metal. The chest will take up more metal than normal.
