Huginn (meaning thought) and Muninn (meaning memory) are the mythical crow companions of the Norse god Odin. They would fly around the world each day and at night return to Odin’s shoulders to tell him what they saw.
This design features the birds and a NASA Earth Observatory image. This image “Earth’s City Lights” was created from data used to map the locations of permanent lights on the earth’s surface.
Captured in 2010, the image inside the bird’s bodies illustrates urbanization as light pollution in the night sky.
