The Hornelund Hoard, consisting of two brooches and an armring, found near Varde, are considered amongst the finest examples of 10th Century Danish goldsmithing, with both Norse Ringerike style artwork visible in the animal heads and internals of the brooches, with the outer edges more representative of Christian art of the period.Just the way the pattern twists fascinated me, it's so incredibly intricate.They are on display in The National Museum, Copenhagen.

The plate measures 10 Inches diameter.
