The Jelling style (or Jellinge style)

... one of the six known Norse art styles, prevailed from the beginning of the 10th century up to approx. 975. This particular Viking Age style is characterized by the recurrence of human and animal representations, plant motifs (tendrils and leaves) and geometric figures. While the preceding Oseberg and Borre styles featured animals of rather squat, stocky build, the Jellinge animals are depicted with particularly slender, elongated, ribbon-shaped bodies.
