Artist's Description

11×14 acrylic and ink on masonite panel

Freyja is the Norse goddess of love, beauty, fertility, death, war and magic. That alone is quite fascinating considering she is both the goddess of fertility and death. She is quite a contradiction. She was also thought of as the Queen of the Elves. She ruled over the Valkryies who often took the shape of ravens and took the bodies of dead warriors to the afterlife. She was very skilled at magic and many women of Midgard (Middle Earth where we live) were her devotees and practiced seidr (magic) for Freyja. These women were shamaness/seeresses known as Volva or sometimes anglicized as Vala. An interesting sidenote is that J.R.R. Tolkien called his Angelic creator beings of Midgard the Valor (singularly known as Vala). I am completely geeking on Tolkien right now getting ready for the Hobbit to come out :)
