A Winged Figure From Uppakra

Helmbrecht, Michaela LU (2012) In Fornvännen 107(3). p.171-178
Abstract
During excavations at Uppakra in Scania, Sweden, an exceptional copper alloy mount in the shape of a winged human was found. The figure is unique not only in its exquisite craftsmanship, but also in its iconography. It is argued that the mount was made in the loth century AD and that it depicts Wayland the Smith.
