Friday Finds 06

Today I am introducing PantheonSkulptur. Stina lives in Sweden and makes resin statues of the Norse Gods and goddesses, which she then gilds with brass leaf.

The Freya, Frigga, Thor, Skadi and Jord/Gerd statues have already sold, but maybe if you messaged Stina she would be able to make another.

Edit: Hella statue is now mine. Channelling Gollum: come to me my preciousss.

Friday Finds 05

Today I’m introducing Samantha J Chilton. She is an artist living in the UK. She does paintings and makes mini statues, including Norse Deities. Her Odin Allfather piece is a limited edition of 30, so if you want him you’d better not leave it too long to order.

She has an Etsy shop and an ebay shop.

We have a gravel driveway and I’ve found some interesting pieces on it over the time we’ve had it. Yesterday I found some belemnite remnants, some fossilised shells and a hole-y stone. Dad also found a couple of bits of ammonite for me. I thought the belemnites and shells would be perfect for Aegir, Ran and their daughters, being the remains of ancient sea creatures. The ammonites would be a good representation of Jormungand, and the hole-y stone for Odin since in the Mead myth he turned himself into a serpent to wriggle through a hole.
I also found a perfectly round natural bead, and Sigyn has claimed it for Herself. I haven’t photographed it though because I hope to make a necklace or some other offering with it.

Iceland to have its own temple to Thor, Odin and Frigga!

Iceland is to have a temple dedicated to Thor, Odin and Frigga built overlooking Reykjavik.

“The temple will hold weddings and funerals and observe Blót, a traditional ritual involving drinking to the gods using a drinking horn before holding a feast.”
