Wagner's Ring Cycle was inspired by Norse mythology. Odin is known as the Norse All-Father, and carries souls to the unseen realms. A patron of warriors, he was skilled in magic and a master of primal forces. Known as the One-Eyed God, Odin sacrificed his eye to gain wisdom from the fountain of Mimir. His most commonly noted familiars were wolves and ravens, the Germanic beasts of battle. This bust of Odin beautifully represents the Norse God wearing a winged helm, eye patch, braids in his long beard and with a pair of ravens. Made of cold cast bronze (a process of mixing bronze powder with resin), giving it the look of metal and intricately sculpted details.
A great gift for mythology enthusiasts and Wagnerites alike.
