Description

This strangely weapon-less Lego Viking warrior was used as an in-store display piece. The warrior is approximately one metre high and is wearing helmet with the horns associated with the Vikings in popular portrayals. His shield features two inter-twined dragons, a design reminiscent of Viking-Age art found on rune stones, particularly in Sweden.
