BTW if he wanted runes, he can only pick one these days. Of course the
arrangement is modern for that futhark.
As an honest piece of advice, since he wants "EARLY" viking, my guess is with
this runic usage and such that probably the best inspiration for adapting early
pictorials to heraldric ones is to look at Vendel art. Some of those could very
easily be blazoned into period heraldry and then drawn as the client wishes. By
Vendel I mean even check out the Sutton Hoo stuff, and even earlier like
Illerup,etc. where the shield have been reconstructed and are high status and

I have a client that wants an unusual device. Looking at it have have two
questions right of the bat. First being, is this even legal. The next being if
it is legal then how do I blazon it. I know that two wolves yin-yanged is not
going to fly. Below is a link to an image of the device.
The client is going for EARLY Norse.
