During one of the Byzantine ceremonies Halfdan a Varangian Guardsman must have carved his name in to the then church Basilica!!! Incredible!!

 "Varangian Guard- JomsVikinga" by Leon Goodman

This rare and incredible painting illustrates also some of the most feared of all Vikings the mercenary Jomsvikinga with their blueteeth. The JomsVikinga were feared all over Europe they came from Jomsborg on the Baltic which is now the town of Swinoujscie in Poland which was the town of Wolin in Prussia. Jomsborg was founded by the most famous of all JomsViking Harold Bluetooth. The JomsVikinga were a brotherhood that were particularly fierce and only accepted the best warriors. They carved chunks/grooves out of their teeth and placed blue dye in them to give them distinctive sharpened blue teeth!!!

"Varangian Guard- JomsVikinga" by Leon Goodman

The Jomsviking were so notorious they spawned their own sagas!! It was written that when aband of them were once captured they asked to be beheaded facing their executioners. The recent uncovering of 54 Vikings in Dorset England (Ridgway Hill near Weymouth) were almost certainly a band of mercenary JomsVikings as they had the distinctive grooves in their teeth and they were beheaded facing their executioners so having a warriors death to enter Valhalla!!

 

 

The JomsVikings pictured were part of the Varangian Guard which was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army in 10th to the 14th centuries, whose members, mainly Vikings, served as personal bodyguards of the Byzantine Emperors. The Varangian Guard was formed in 988 by Emperor Basil II when Vladimir I sent 6000 Vikings as part of a military assistance agreement. Basil II distrusted native Byzantine guardsman so he went on to use the Vikings as his personal guardsman!! Over the years new recruits from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland kept a predominantly Viking cast to the organisation until the late 11th Century. So many Scandinavians left to join the Guard that a medieval law from Västergötland stated that no one could inherit while staying in Byzantine!!! The Guard also recruited large amounts of Anglo-Saxons especially after the Norman Viking invasion of England in 1066. The Saxons shared with the Vikings a tradition of faith till death and many fighting saxon men who had lost their lands looked to live elsewhere!! The Guard was also involved in many local wars and played a crucial role. The Varangians had an awesome reputation and were greatly feared. The Varangians were still in Constantinople until its fall to Ottoman invaders under Mehmet II in 1453!!!

 Leon Goodman has been a professional artist for the majority of his working life. His work has been sold at The Omell Gallery, Ascot, as well as Christies, the fine art auction house in London. Many of his works have sold for thousands of pounds to the U.S.A. Since seeing his work, Risborough Art Gallery have made him a regularly featured artist. Leon’s philosophy is that it is not the delineation of the subject which is important, but its fragmentation. He believes a strictly photographic image does not allow the viewer to participate in the painting. If the image is fragmented, the viewer can imagine for himself the missing parts and involve himself in the creation of the whole image. The viewer has seen his own interpretation of the fragmented images; the next viewer may see something different.
