Official Portrait

Commissioned by Odin for his portrait hall. I have absolutely no idea why I'm wearing a goat on my head. Official portraitists like the strangest things. [An illustration from Fredrik Sander's 1893 Swedish edition of the Poetic Edda. Reprinted with Erik Brate's 1913 translation which in turn is published by Project Runeberg http://runeberg.org/eddan/ from where the image is taken.] (tagged: )
