Odin Statue

$109.00

Standing 10" tall and 8 1/2" wide, this statue is perfect for any who revere the Norse pantheons.
Sculpted of cold-cast resin and painted in muted tones that give the appearance that he is sculpted of brass, is depicted the ruler of the Norse pantheon, Odin. His very name is related to the word oor, meaning fury and excitation, as well as poetry and mind. forging a complex origin paves the path for his complicated role as chief of the Norse Gods. The lord of wisdom, war, battle, and death he was also known to have held sway over magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt; a complex mingling of many of the virtues that the Norse people held sacred. It was he who received the souls of valiant warriors that died in battle and the women he favored become the legendary Valkyries, who strode among the battlefields and brought the valiant dead to the halls of Valhalla, where they would wait, training and feasting. Then, when Ragnorok came, they would take up arms again and fight for Odin in the battle that was foretold to mean his death. Here he is shown sitting regally in his throne set upon Hlidskjalf, a place from which he could perceive everything that happened in the universe. Girded for battle, he seems as though he could be overseeing a council of war, with his expression painted into an image of stern contemplation. Close at hand are his ravens Huginn and Munninn (Names that translate into Thought and Memory), who fly around the earth daily and report the happenings of the world to Odin at night, and the wolves Geri and Freki rest close by his feet, to whom he feeds the food of his table for Odin, in his might, requires nothing but mead.
