The Stone of Stora Hammar is a stone decorated with images from the Viking age.

On the stone are several images of mythological and religious nature as well as martial acts. Also, a sacrifice, possibly the blood eagle, is probably depicted with a falcon (a mythological symbol suggesting a relationship with the god Odin) above the altar. In addition, Viking ships with warriors are depicted.

The stone was originally located in the town of Stora Hammar, and is currently located in the bungemuseet.
