After seeing Marisa's versions the Norse gods Loki and Thor , I got inspired to make some of them myself.



* BALDER *
(or Baldr, Baldur; ”The Glorious”)

The god of innocence, beauty, joy, purity, and peace.

Brage was son of Frigg and Odin, and the fairest and most handsome of all the aesirs.
His wife was called Nanna and his son was Forseti .

Balder owned the largest ship ever built, named Hringham (or Hringhorni), and a hall called Breidablik.

Balder's death was caused by his brother, the blind Hod, who got tricked by Loki to aim at him with misteltoe; which was the only plant their mother Frigg hadn't made swear not to harm her son.
The gods grieved inconsolably over his death.

At Balder's funeral; where he was ceremonially burned on his ship; Nanna died from a broken heart and was put to rest on the funeral fire beside him.

:jaw: :banana: :yippee: I saw this post and wanted to comment SO BADLY because Balder is my favorite from Norse mythology (and I want one in real life, thankyouverymuch!) and you did so wonderfully with him, but I couldn't think of anything to say! There were so many compliments I wanted to give you, but they're all jumbled together in my head and won't come out, so I hope you can dicipher my pure adoration of your work from all of this.

Thank You!!!! *yayheehee* :elephant: :bow2: :blow:

Actually, it was the poison from a misteltoe(yep, it's poisonous) that killed him.

But either way, you got him really good ^^
