Arrow - Boom - Cupid's Eros
Arrow symbolism: Arrows are thrown by a bow or crossbow (an arrow for a crossbow is called a "bolt").
An arrow is a projectile designed to hit a target from a distance using an archery shot. This projectile is characterized by aerodynamic functions, due to which it overcomes a considerable distance in the air in a short period of time, maintaining stability in flight, and penetrating, due to which the effect of defeating the intended target is provided. Bows and arrows were the main weapons of hunting and weapons of many nations of the world from the time of their invention in the Mesolithic era and before they were driven out and replaced by firearms (later Middle Ages and modern times).The symbolism of the value of arrows paid special attention.
An important source for the study of this topic are the materials of folklore of the Turkic and Mongolian peoples. It was noted that the arrows were of different shapes, had different names and purposes, highlighted the mythical "big-eyed" and "magic" arrows, capable of not only hitting enemies, but also healing soldiers from wounds. Also, in various mythical tales of various narrative arrows are of great importance and legend: the arrow of Apollo, with which he killed the Cyclopes; the arrow of Hercules with which killed the eagle and tormented the liver of Prometheus; the Golden Arrow used by Apollo and his priest Abaris who flew upon the arrow; the arrow of mistletoe by which the blind god Hyod killed the Norse God Baldr; the arrow of Paris that hit the heel of the Achaean hero Achilles ("Achilles' heel"); the flight of the arrow was directed by Apollo himself; Arrows Eroth, the son of Aphrodite.
Cupid's Arrow or Cupid Eros
Beautiful Aphrodite reigns over the world. She, like Zeus the Thunderer, has a messenger: through him her will is done. The messenger of Aphrodite is her son Eros, cheerful, playful, cunning, and a sometimes cruel boy.
Eros is worn on the golden wings above the earth and the seas. In his hands - a golden bow, behind his shoulders - a quiver of arrows. No one is protected from golden arrows. Without a miss he hits the target like an archer, he is not inferior to the golden sweater Apollo himself.
The arrows of Eroth bear joy and happiness, but they also bring suffering, torments of love and even death. Apollo and Zeus Erotos arrows caused a lot of suffering. Zeus knew how much grief and evil the son of Aphrodite would bring to the world. He wanted to kill him at birth. But how could she allow this mother! She hid Eros in an impassable forest, and there, in the forest jungle, two furious lionesses fed Erota with milk. Eros has grown up, and is worn all over the world, young, beautiful sowing with his arrows in the world, happiness, grief, good, evil.

Pirate - Pirates - Blackbeard
Edward Teach the Legendary Pirate "Blackbeard"
Edward Teach (Edward Teach), nicknamed Blackbeard, is an English pirate operating in the Caribbean around 1713-1718. Edward Teach was born in 1680 in Bristol. In fact, the pirate we knew was named Edward Drummond, but he went down in history as Edward Tich Little is known about Tich’s childhood and youth. Some historians say that Tich was an orphan, others - illegitimate, and others that in Jamaica, and his parents were very wealthy people. Tich's childhood was bleak and ended in 1692, when Tych, who was barely twelve years old, entered as a cabin boy in the navy. The service in the navy was very difficult, the officers subjected the sailors to severe penalties for the most minor offenses, and the lowest ranks had absolutely no rights. However, it was still better than poverty and hunger on the streets of his native city. Over the years of his service, Edward Teach perfectly mastered the sea craft. After some time, the young man was tired of military service and began to look for a business to his liking.
In 1713, Edward joined the pirate team of Benjamin Hornigold, who worked on the islands of the Caribbean. Hornigold at that time had official permission from the English king to attack the merchant ships of hostile countries. The recruit was very quickly selected among all the other members of the team. Edward Teach thoroughly studied marine science, was hardy, brave and tireless in battles. Tich quickly got his own ship, Revenge of Queen Anne, and from 1714 to 1718 became a famous pirate.
The ship of Edward Tich was called "Revenge of Queen Anne", and the mystery of his name has not been solved until now. Some historians believe that in this way he made a very cunning move - he pretended that he had absolutely no idea about the elimination of piracy and still continued to act with the permission of the queen. While Captain Edward Teach began robbing the ships, Queen Anne had already died. That is why many believe that he named his ship in honor of another Anna, who was unjustly executed by her husband a century and a half before the captain's birth.
According to some documents, pirate Edward Teach, who terrified foreign traders, was never a bloodthirsty and dangerous killer. In 1717, when he was just starting his own robbery, the captain seized the ship, selected the cargo on board and released the entire crew along with the vessel. In this battle, absolutely no one was hurt.
A little later, the pirates under the leadership of Blackbeard captured several more merchant ships. They only took away valuable cargo. As a result, Tych attacked the "Concord", which was then renamed to his famous "Revenge of Queen Anne". The team landed on the island and left them food and boats.
According to eyewitness accounts and preserved records, Blackbeard always tried to avoid bloodshed. If the ships immediately surrendered, the pirates only took away the cargo, part of the provisions and released the crew. One day, a legendary captain seized a frigate with officials on board, took them prisoner, and then sent a ransom request to interested parties. He did not ask for money and jewelry, but only a chest with medication drugs. Requirements were met, but the boat capsized. When this became known, they sent the second boat with a ransom. However, the pirates did not kill the prisoners, but patiently waited for the ransom and then let them all go.
It is worth noting that Blackbeard released only those who did not resist. If the opponents wanted to take the fight, they were killed. And in his team, Tych did not tolerate disobedience. Those who tried to go against the captain or incited the team to revolt were sent to feed fish.
The career of the pirate Blackbeard, from the moment of its beginning to his death, lasted less than 2 years, but this was enough to make Tich forever history. Glory brought him boarding attacks, accompanied by special effects designed to intimidate their potential victims and suppress their will to resist.
Edward Teach was one of the few pirates who raged at that time off the islands of the Caribbean. His career was very bright, but rather short, as other pirates managed to rob merchant ships much longer. However, it was Blackbeard that became a legend. First of all, this was facilitated by the rather bright appearance of Ticha and his tendency to use frightening special effects. Many legends about the life of a pirate are widespread thanks to former members of the team who were lucky enough to escape the gallows. For a long time they told various pirate stories and fables.

Mjolnir - Mjølner - Myolnir - Melorner
The Norse Mjolnir - "Crusher" the correct pronunciation of "mjölnir" - in the German-Scandinavian mythology Thor's hammer. Easy as a feather and after throwing returns to the hand of the thrower. Only Thor and his son Magni could raise Mjölnir. Thor put on special mittens to touch the hammer, and a special belt that doubles the wearer's strength. Mjölnir’s blow caused thunder.
It is made by the dwarves Brock and Sidri in a dispute with Loki about the skill of blacksmiths. The hammer was recognized by Asami as the best creation of the dwarves, and Loki lost the argument. At one time, Thor’s hammer was stolen by the Oetun Trim, but thanks to Loki’s cunning and Heimdall’s wisdom, Thor brought his hammer back. Mjöllnir was considered a symbol of Thor.
Hammer copies were popular in Scandinavia, people wore them as an amulet around their neck, and they were also used in sacred ceremonies: weddings, sacrifices to the Alves, etc. They were placed under the bed of the newlyweds so that they would have many children. After the adoption of Christianity, people still wore a cross and an amulet-copy of Mjöllnir for a long time.
The Vikings were not representatives of one people, it was a motley group of soldiers, travelers and traders under the leadership of the leader. At the time of the Vikings, Scandinavia was not divided into large states (Denmark, Norway, Sweden), but consisted of many areas under the leadership of such groups. In general, the Old Norse word "Viking" is not tied to any locality, and means a person participating in a campaign to the sea.
Most of the Vikings lived peacefully on the lands where Iceland and Greenland are now located and were considered sophisticated traders who dealt with representatives of different nations and countries of the world.
Mjolnir Product Details
Thor's Hammer in silver from the Viking period from around the year 1000. Found by Rømersdal on the island Bornholm. Where the Christians used the cross as a symbol, pagans used the powerful God Thor's hammer as theirs. The hammer belonged to Odin's son Thor, who used it in his fight against the giants. It always hit its target and then returned to him. The original is on display at the National Museum in Copenhagen.
About 50 specimens of Mjølner amulets have been found widely dispersed throughout Scandinavia, dating from the 9th to 11th centuries, most commonly discovered in areas with a strong Christian influence including southern Norway, south-eastern Sweden, and Denmark. Due to the similarity of equal-armed, square crosses featuring figures of Christ on them at around the same time, the wearing of Thor's hammers as pendants may have come into fashion in defiance of the square amulets worn by newly converted Christians in the regions.
An iron Thor's hammer pendant excavated in Yorkshire, dating to ca. AD 1000 bears an uncial inscription preceded and followed by a cross, interpreted as indicating a Christian owner syncretizing pagan and Christian symbolism.
In the story of Mjølner, Loki bets his head with Sindri and his brother Brokkr that they could never succeed in making items more beautiful than those of the Sons of Ivaldi (the dwarves who created other precious items for the gods: Odin's spear Gungnir.)
Sindri and Brokkr accept Loki's bet and the two brothers begin working. They begin to work in their workshop and Eitri puts a pig's skin in the forge and tells his brother never to stop working the bellows until he comes and takes out what he put in. Loki, in disguise as a fly, comes and bites Brokkr on the arm. Nevertheless, he continues to pump the bellows.
Then, Sindri takes out Gullinbursti, Freyr's boar with shining bristles. Next, Sindri puts some gold in the forge and gives Brokkr the same order. Again, Loki, still in the guise of a fly comes and, again, bites Brokkr's neck twice as hard as he had bitten his arm. Just as before, Brokkr continues to work the bellows despite the pain. When Sindri returns, he takes out Draupnir, Odin's ring, which drops eight duplicates of itself every ninth night.
Finally, Sindri puts some iron in the forge and tells Brokkr not to stop pumping the bellows. Loki comes a third time and this time bites Brokkr on the eyelid even harder. The bite is so deep that it draws blood. The blood runs into Brokkr's eyes and forces him stop working the bellows just long enough to wipe his eyes. This time, when Sindri returns, he takes Mjølner out of the forge. The handle is shorter than Sindri had planned and so the hammer can only be wielded with one hand.
Despite the flaw in the handle, Sindri and Brokkr win the bet and go to take Loki's head. However, Loki worms his way out of the bet by pointing out that the dwarves would need to cut his neck to remove his head, but Loki's neck was not part of the deal. As a consolation prize, Brokkr sews Loki's mouth shut to teach him a lesson.

Wolf - Wolves - Odin's Wolves
In myths, folklore and fairy tales, the wolf personifies not only ferocity and deceit, but also courage and victory. In addition, the wolf could become a mighty defender of helpless creatures. Common to many mythologies is the story about the upbringing of the ancestor of the tribe of the she-wolf. There are many stories about the progenitor wolves, for example, the Roman legend of the Capitoline she-wolf who raised Romulus and Remus. A wolf could serve as an emblem of warriors and act as an attribute of the god of war. An important role was assigned to the wolf in the cult of Mars in Rome and Odin in Norse mythology. In many traditions, the warriors, reflecting the idea of a wolf pack as a symbol of a single squad, were called wolves and often dressed in wolf skins. The wolf is the sacred animal of Odin in Norse mythology and Apollo in Greek. The mother of Apollo and Artemis turned into a she-wolf, and Apollo himself could turn into a wolf, therefore in the Delphi sanctuary of Apollo there was a copper sculpture of the sacred wolf. Dedicated to Mars in ancient Rome, the wolf served as a symbol of victory if he was noticed before the battle. In Serbia, it was believed that the wolf brings good luck and can predict the harvest. In Mexico and among American Indian tribes, the wolf was a symbol of dance, associated with spirits and accompaniment to the realm of the dead.
