„Hel the Goddess of Death at Ragnarok“

from the gallery of Inda Art

Hel the goddess of death is the ruler of the dead in the realm of the same name in the land of Niflheim. She is known from the norse mythology and is one of 3 siblings, the other two being Fenrir the Wolf and The Midgard Serpent, all children of Loke, the trickster who will eventually go to war with the gods and cause the end of the world. Hel is both living and dead at the same time giving her a twisted and horrific look.

The picture show her, when Ragnarok starts (Armageddon in norse mythology) as she leaves her realm and sails with an undead army. She will go alongside her father Loke to fight the gods. The world will eventually be destroyed and a new one will arise.

The old mythology was popular in viking times especially in Scandinavia and has since inspired many comics, movies and computer games.
