Description

An image of the giant Viking head statue located outside Miss Maud's Swedish restaurant and bakehouse on Fitzgerald Street in Perth, WA.

The figure has a long, bushy beard and is wearing a horned helmet. It appears to be made of limestone.

Along with Denmark and Norway, Sweden was one of the Viking homelands. Despite their enduring popularity there is no certain evidence that Viking warriors wore horned helmets.
