The Punishment of Loki Picture

This sculpture was made in 1905 by Ida Matton, and is today part of Stockholm City Hall. It's a difficult subject, but I think I got the angle right. It's also a very erotic subject: a naked and muscled man with his hands tied behind his back, the serpent in front of him looking very much like a flaccid penis... Of course, as the myth goes, he is tied with the entrails of his own son, the moral of the story probably being "don't screw with the gods".
