Description

This photograph shows a sign above the Viking Furniture shop in Mount Compass in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. The sign depicts a Viking dragon ship, or longship, made of wood, featuring a dragon head and tail, mast, and shields along the side of the ship. Unfortunately the shop is empty so no report can be made of the Viking furniture.

One of the most famous dragon ships was the late tenth-century Ormen Lange (Long Serpent) of the Norwegian king Olaf Tryggvason.
