Ragnaroek : Odin Picture

Ragnaroek: the dawn of the gods....

The dwarves groan by their stone doors. Surtur, the fire demon advances from the south, his sword brighter than the sun. Rocky cliffs open and the jötnar women sink. People walk the road to Hel and heavens split apart.

The gods go to battle with the invaders, well aware of their destiny: After a terrible fight, Odin is swallowed whole and alive fighting the wolf Fenrir, causing his wife Frigg her second great sorrow after loosing her beloved son Baldr. Odin's son Vidarr avenges his father by rending Fenrir's jaws apart and stabbing it in the heart with his spear, thus killing the wolf.

It sates itself on the life-blood
of fated men,
paints red the powers' homes
with crimson gore.
Black become the sun's beams
in the summers that follow,
weathers all treacherous.
Do you still seek to know? And what?
