Here reigns the sinister atmosphere.
The village Holmavik in the North-West of Iceland is notable for the Museum of Icelandic sorcery and black magic. In the old days, Icelanders relied on black magic to solve their problems, whether it be changing weather conditions, obtaining wealth, conquest, love or deliverance from enemies. Among the exhibits of this Museum you can see the books of spells, skeletons in cloaks, runes and warlock pants made from human skin.

To create this creature, the woman early in the morning on the day of Pentecost stole a rib sliesarieva corpse, wrapped him in a grey coat, which should also steal (sometimes it is specified that the wool had to be plucked from the space between the shoulder blades of sheep, owned by the widow shortly after the haircut).

Replica nambroca (“necropotence”)
The ritual of making nambroca began with receipt of a living person permission to use his skin after his death. After his funeral it was necessary to dig up the body and tear the corpse of the skin below the belt in one piece, without scratches and cuts. The pants were worn, they are tightly stuck to the skin and become part of the body wearing. Next, it was necessary to steal from the poor widow’s coin (for Christmas, Easter or Pentecost) and stick it in the scrotum with a special solution. According to legend while the coin is in the scrotum, it will attract money. Not to go to hell, the owner had in life to persuade someone to get these pants myself and the new owner had to put the right leg until the former owner took off the left.
