Description

Valhalla Icecream is made in the Hobart suburb of Moonah. As seen on this advertising sign, the company’s logo features the side profile of the head of a Viking warrior on a red shield. The warrior wears a helmet with wings, a notion popular in the late 19th century before Vikings with horned helmets became more popular. In Old Norse (Viking) mythology Valhalla was a giant hall where chosen warriors who had died in battle went to join the Norse god Odin. The warriors were led to Valhalla by Valkyries.
