Norse, Germanic and Slavic Mythologies and Legends

From 2020 to 2022, I produced a collection of dreamlike stories, in the style of Dada and surrealist poets. Each was associated with a mythological or legendary character, which I then illustrated.

  • Ægir (“sea” in Old Norse) is a giant or god of Norse mythology, the personification of the sea.
  • Cailleach is a divine witch, mother goddess and weather deity, and possibly an ancestral deity of Gaelic mythology.
  • Raven: In Norse mythology, the ravens Hugin and Munin sit on the shoulders of the god Odin and report to him everything they see and hear.
  • Glaur, in Norse mythology, is the mother of the Sun and the Moon.
  • Hoder is a fighting and murdering god, blind, son of Odin according to the Eddas.
  • Svarog is the god of fire and metalworking in Slavic mythology.
  • Vesna is the Slavic goddess of spring, youth, nature and abundance.
  • Yorick is the deceased jester character in Hamlet, the skull that Hamlet talks to at the graveyard.
