Viking art, also known commonly as Norse art, is a term widely  accepted  for  Viking  art  of  Scandinavia  and  Viking settlements further afield—particularly in the British Isles, Ireland and Iceland—during the Viking Age of the 8th-11th  centuries  CE.  Viking  art  has  many design elements in common with Celtic, Germanic, the later Romanesque and Eastern European art, sharing many influences with each of these traditions.               .
Viking art is emblematic of the surprisingly ornate material culture of the Northerners. Vikings loved elaborate decorations and they decorated many of the things they used: weapons, jewellery, runestones, ship woodwork and even their common, everyday items. They loved abstract and intricate animal designs and multiple interlacing lines. The animals depicted in their art include serpents, horses, wolves, birds and unreal, fantastic animals. As the Viking Age progressed, craftsmen varied the designs and six distinct but overlapping art styles developed. The 6 distinct styles, Oseberg, Borre, Jelling, Mammem, Ringerike and Urnes are named for an area where a decorated object was found.
