Fenrir: The Monster Wolf of Norse Mythology
Fenrir is a large wolf, and the offspring of the god Loki. Fenrir lived with the gods in Asgard, but as Fenrir continued to grow and grow into a monstrously large size, the gods knew he posed too much of a threat to continue his residence in Asgard. So, the gods executed a plot to bind Fenrir and remove him from Asgard.Black t-shirt screen printed with the Celtic Hammer Club "Fenrir: The Monster Wolf of Norse Mythology" artwork.

Fenrir will remain bound by the magical dwarf ribbon seething, his anger growing, until Ragnarök (the Nordic version of the Armageddon and end of days). At which point he will break free and swallow Odin, the god of gods, WHOLE (bad wolf! No treat for you)! This symbol has been interpreted as the idea of darkness taking over the light.
The design depicts this monstrous canine of Northern European lore in a classic Nordic style with knots and patterns everywhere, but with a contemporary twist. The colors are distressed to give an aged appearance almost as if it's a gold or bronze artifact that was dug out of a Scandinavian chieftain's burial mound. The runes at the bottom of the design say "Fenrir".
