Lewis Chess Pieces

Transcript: By: Taylor Dubinski What Is Norse/ Viking Art? Deeper Look Into The Lewis Chess Pieces Viking art was most commonly found on everyday objects. The Lewis Chess Pieces incorporate all major social classes found during the Middle Ages. The origin of the word Viking comes from both Old Norse and Old English The Lewis Chess Pieces represent a symbol of European culture. The Lewis Chess Pieces test the boundaries of what is considered Norse/Viking art. Due to multiple raids Norse/ Viking art incorporates many different art forms from many different cultures. • The King- Represents both the English and Norse Kings both of which were very important. Norse Kings fought in battle with their men to show them that they all were on the same social level. • The Priest- Represents the Christian priests. Many of them believed the Vikings were illiterate and evil. The Norse culture did not have priests, instead they had oracles. Oracles could be found in every village. They had powers that would let them contact the gods and see the future. People would often visit them to see if they would be accepted into Valhalla and what their future looked like. • The Knight- Represents both Viking warriors and everyday people. In Norse society everyone could own a weapon and fight. This goes for men, women and slaves. The type of weapon a person had told what social class they belonged to. History of The Lewis Chess Pieces The Viking Age officially started in the year 793 and ended in the year 1500. The Vikings (a part of the Norse Culture), lived in an area of Europe called Scandinavia. 1. Norway 2.Sweden 3. Denmark 4. Finland 5. Scotland ( Considered a part of Norway during the Viking Age. ) The Vikings raided Northern, Southern, Western, and Eastern Europe. As well as North America, Byzantine Empire, Russia, Asia, and the Middle East. Wicing- A person who raids. (Old English) History of Vikings with a background of Viking Culture. Deeper Look Into The Lewis Chess Pieces • The Vikings are often known as a barbaric culture who fought and waged war both for conquering purposes as well as pleasure. • Fighting was a part of everything they did. Even when it came to religion. • They believed in a polytheistic religion (many gods), who fought and were as equally barbaric as the vikings themselves. • Unlike many other religions the Norse people believed that their gods were meant to be worshiped but not to be fully trusted. Many of the Norse Gods had two sides to them a good side and an evil one. • The ultimate goal in a Vikings life was to go to Valhalla. Valhalla was similar to heaven. The only way to go to Valhalla was if Odin ( The Alfather) believed that you had died heroically in battle and represented a true warrior when you were alive. Viking Culture Lewis Chess Pieces Found in the sand dunes of Uig. Which is located on the Western coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles). Located in Scotland. Year found 1831 They were created sometime in the 12th-13th century. Around the years 1150-1200.

Originally, the pieces were stained red, but have since turned a white oak color. Height: 60-100 mm Carved out of walrus teeth and ivory. Historians believe that the Lewis Chess Pieces were created by a merchant living in Norway (present day Scotland) and planned on selling his creation in Ireland. Physical Link between Norway and the Western Isles • Viking Art had many influences from other countries especially England and Rome. • The Lewis Chess Pieces are a great example of an art style called Romanesque. • Romanesque art is a mixture of art styles from the fusion of Roman, Carolingian, Ottonian, Byzantine, and Germanic art. • It is very different from Norse art because it deals with linear lines and shapes. • Every Piece in the Lewis Chess Pieces represents a social class Víkingr- Pirate (Old Norse) 3 Important Facts and Ideas • The Queen- Represents the English Queens, these queens did not fight like the Norse ones did. Origin Of Vikings • The Standing Warders- Represent Berserk warriors. These warriors are a apart of Norse mythology.
