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.[1] 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.
