Goddess Freyja Overlooking the Fólkvangr

Goddess FryjaGoddess Fryja

In Norse mythology, Fólkvangr (Old Norse "field of the host" or "people-field" or "army-field") is a meadow or field ruled over by the goddess Freyja where half of those that die in combat go upon death, while the other half go to the god Odin in Valhalla. Fólkvangr is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. According to the Prose Edda, within Fólkvangr is Freyja's hall Sessrúmnir. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the implications of the location.

 

I have no idea where to put this next painting, so I'm going to stick it here...

Earlier  this year I found out that I am to become a grandfather for the first time. Following my daughter's 'gender reveal' party I decided to do a Dumboesque painting for her  nursery. Once our grandson is born I'll fill in his name and birth time / date in the banner and it can then be  framed and hung over the crib.
