"Nú var Loki tekinn griðalauss ok farit með hann í helli nökkurn. Þá tóku þeir þrjár hellur ok settu á egg ok lustu rauf á hellunni hverri. Þá váru teknir synir Loka, Váli ok Nari eða Narfi. Brugðu æsir Vála í vargslíki ok reif hann í sundr Narfa, bróður sinn."

Prose Edda

I love the one eye is an X on that little grey-bearded puppet. That's how you know it's Odin! And there's a Thor puppet in the basket. Let's see... Who is Odin attacking there? And there's a dog puppet on the floor. Is that supposed to be Fenris? This is adorable.

Yes that supposed to be Fenris, Odinn is not attacking anyone, he is actually kicked by Sleipnir ;-)

Hellanim, this is by far the cutest illustration you've made of Loki <3<3<3<3<3 and I love seeing him so happy with the family he truly loved ! So sad the gods were so cruel to Loki and Sigyn by taking their sons' lives so horribly :cries:

Oh, that is so very lovely! My friends and I are writing many Norse Mythology based stories (and even a novel!) with Loki as one of the characters. He quite enjoys to tell stories, especially the one when he and Thor had to dress up for Thrymr's wedding. If his kids are lucky, he will even add magical fire effects. I really love this painting.

My friend Luned Cadwallader is writing a new novel, with 'The Winter Skald' as a working title. It's about Loki and Skadi as they were when they were young, on a quest and stuff like that. Can't reveal any more! Glad you're interested.
