Is it meant to have the Buddhist wheel of reincarnation in it?

It's called ∆gishjŠlmur and means "Helm of Awe".
It's a viking age rune that was used to curse the enemy and protect you in battle

It's origin is Middle eastern though, absorbed through the vikings trade of plunder for silk, spice, food & knowledge. It's an interesting use and shows there heavily underestimated wisdom.
