Such a cute and intrigues look for someone who just hacked something to death.

They never actually wore horns or wings on their helmets, you know.

In 19th Century illustrations, it was hard to tell Saxons from Vikings, so the artists added wings & horns to the Vikings' helmets.

But they never used them in real life.

see the other comments for more info the helmets. :)

but it's not a realistic painting, so why be bound to those ugly helmets they really wore? :) (you wouldn't wear a skirt in the mountains either but there she is). thanks for the info tho...I didn't know that was why they came up with the horns in the old paintings.

Very cool illustration. Maybe if she was a Viking mascot we'd actually win a Superbowl.

I wonder, are you aware that the horned helmets were actually an invention of popular fiction? Folks didn't actually were those. Not even in Minnesota.

You do realize that this is a fantasy illustration. Right?

Easy, easy! No need to get sharp at me. It was just a question. I DID favorite the picture after all.
