This stave (or symbol) was in ancient times believed by some to have the power to make one invisible.  I noticed several months after drawing this version of it that it is not exactly correct to historical representations.  Magical staves such as this were typically drawn in ink mixed with the blood of a human or animal and very particular instructions are associated with it's use.  Please visit the Icelandic Museum of Sorcery and Witchcraft's website for more information.
