In Viking mythology, ravens were known as Huginn and Muninn. They were the familiars of Odin, the god of war, and were said to fly around the world gathering information for their master. In many ways, they symbolized Odin’s power and wisdom. Their ability to fly gave them a bird’s-eye view of the world and their keen eyesight allowed them to see things that others couldn’t. As such, they came to symbolize knowledge and understanding. Ravens were also associated with death and destruction. Their black feathers were considered to represent the darkness of the underworld, and their harsh cries were thought to foretell doom. In some stories, ravens were even said to feast on the flesh of the dead. Therefore, they symbolized the fear of death and its inevitability. To the Vikings, ravens were powerful symbols of both knowledge and death.
