Well-known bronze pin with ornamentation in a form of a snake (or dragon) head.

This find is a part of permanent exhibition in Hedeby Viking Museum / Wikinger Museum Haithabu.

Five carved animal heads were found in the Oseberg burial. One of these is too damaged to be displayed. Some of the heads were found with rope running through their mouths, like reins, and all were found with a rattle and a piece of rope.
