The design of this pendant has been taken from picture stones from graves found in Stenkyrka, Gotland, Sweden, which date back to the Bronze and Iron ages. Most of the graves are cairns and circular tumuli (mounds). Bases for picture stones have been found in the field of graves. The picture stones have been moved and incorporated in the walls of the Stenkyrka Church. Some of these have later been moved to Gotland Museum. These picture stones are similar to the Pictish stones found in Scotland, telling a story with pictures.
Runes (as on the back of the pendant) are a type of alphabet not only spelling something out but often having a mystical power.
