Made by eight runic staves, Vegvisir represents the cardinal and the intercardinal. Some people believe that a nail placed right in the middle of the Vegvisir would point to directions through its shadow’s position at certain times a day. It is believed that the Vegvisir was used by the Vikings as a compass to help them navigate the seas and find their way back to their lands.
