These two fellows are a part of a crew on a boat on the Vitlycke panel. The image is very reminiscent of the famous Grevensvænge find from South Zealand in Denmark (2nd pic, by Marcus Schnabel, 1779.). The find consists of small bronze figures, including two men with horned helmets and broad-axes. One idea is that the figures were mounted on a now lost boat. The pair, or twin, theme is something we find in many cultures from different epochs and parts of the world. Examples include Frey and Freya from Norse mythology, Castor and Pollux from Greek and Roman mythology, and Hinduism’s Ashvins, who were the twin gods of medicine.
