Larvikite Sea Serpent Carving~CRLARVSS. Sea serpents (or sea dragons) were first described in folklore in 1028 AD when the story of Saint Olaf slaying a giant sea serpent surfaced in Norway. Such creatures were based not only on mythologies but also on occasional sightings of unexplained wildlife in the oceans. Sailors who saw these strange creatures thought they were both the cause and the representation of the sea's violent, unknowable depths. It was believed that dragons inhabited not only the seas but also smaller bodies of water, such as rivers and streams. These creatures, known as dragon kings, were responsible for natural events, including storms, floods, and droughts, which could be prevented or alleviated by offering sacrifice and prayer to the corresponding dragon. The sea itself was overseen by four different dragons, one for each cardinal direction, which would be honored by sailors for safety and good weather when they launched their ships. Larvikite is also known as “Norwegian Moonstone” and “Black Labradorite”.
