Odin stone

In the last post I quoted words attributed to the Norse god Odin. Father of the slain, god of battle with roots in shamanic traditions he's an enigmatic figure for sure. This little carving was inspired by the shape of the stone, then came the crown. On the reverse I envisioned a raven - which became the two ravens, Huginn and Muninn (thought and memory). So there we have it, Odin on his throne waiting for warriors in Vahöll! 

Odin will be the subject of another future post.
