Odin Statue - Swedish 7th Century : Deity Statue for Altars and Decor
"Lord of widsom, death and magic."
Odin sacrificed an eye to obtain wisdom, hanged himself for nine days to learn the magical use of runes and suffered death in the underworld. This image shows him wise-bearded and one-eyed. His stalwart stance reminds us to be strong and seek wisdom.
