Description

May I present to you: “Hel.”

She is the Ruler of Niflheim and Helheim, Queen of the Dead and the Underworld. Hel was a daughter of Loki and Angrbodr in the Norse Viking Folklore.

She was the one who kept Baldr in her dominion. Hel says the love people have for Baldr that Hermóðr has claimed must be tested, stating:

If all things in the world, alive or dead, weep for him, then he will be allowed to return to the Æsir. If anyone speaks against him or refuses to cry, then he will remain with Hel.

It is said that then it was Loki who appeared and disguised as the last person in the world who did not weep for Baldr and so Baldr was to remain in her dominion.

In Dutch and Germanic cultures Hel was perceived as less cruel and brutal in contrary to the Viking Folklore.

 

Materials

This wallpiece is made out of Epoxy clay. Many of the attributes are taxidermic. The Ravenwings and the Cobra on the crown in her head are real. Also the feathers on her back are. On her chest I have placed the Raven skull with the Viking Compass. In the dark this ravenskull lights up in blue when it has been in the daylight. On her solaris plexis I have placed a shield with the sunwheel. Her dress is made out of real cobraskin and ravenfeathers.

 

Further information

The reason why I have given her white agate eyes is as follows: It gently shows you the truth of situations. This stone helps with emotional balance, offering courage, balance, endurance to body, mind, spirit. It smooths and stabilizes the aura and helps precision of inner sight. Agate helps to get in touch with the inner self including the Shadow. It transmutes dark emotions, such as jealousy, bitterness, and resentment, and promotes self-acceptance and self-forgiveness. Hel is simnply the way she is.

I have given Hel attributes like raven wings and a cobrahead, because Hel is a dauntless and intimadating giantess. The Jotun were a family that were noted as highly dangerous and notorious as they often disputed the Norse gods. ( for me that means questioning the regular moral and correctness) Yet the Raven is a messenger and often stands for the sentinel and the Shadowsoul and Vardoger ( Guardian) for those who dare to set foot in more uncharted territories in life.

 

For me this is a piece of initiation and her creation is a stand alone. She is entirely unique because I do not repeat my creations!

 

The wallpiece has been designed in such a way that she can be hung flat to the wall and it looks like she is coming right out of it. Beautiful for homedecors with spice and dark tones and she is for the dauntless owner who knows how to wield her!


Once a year I make 1 to maximal 2 large busts or wallpieces. These initiatory creations take time, carefully selected materials and accuracy as they are detailed and handmade.
