Artist's Description

July 2008

Digital painting

Every morning the two ravens Huginn and Muninn, are loosed and fly over Midgard. They travel as spies across the land and sea before returning at dusk to their master Odin. They perch on his shoulders and whisper to him the events of the day. When translated ‘Huginn’ becomes Thought and ‘Muninn’ becomes Memory. The moral of the story is to pass on the memories and wisdom that we accumulate over the years. Thus preventing our stories, achievements and teachings from being forgotten. It also suggests that we should be well informed of the events of the world in order to become wise and avoid misfortune.
