From wikipedia: Borre style evolved at the latest c. 850 and was still used in the late 10th century. This art style was popular in areas settled by the Vikings. Borre style was mainly employed to decorate jewelry, belt-fittings and woodwork.
Its most characteristic motif is the so-called "ring braid" which consists of a symmetrical braiding with two bands, held together by rings that are surrounded by square figures. It frequently featured mask-head like animal heads, pretzel shaped bodies, and gripping paws. Plaited knots and ring-chain patterns are also common. The ridges of designs in metalwork are often nicked to imitate the filigree wire used on the finest pieces.
