Description

The second piece in my series of layered reliefs that started with "Odins Ravens: Hugin and Munin," I present another pair of iconic creatures from Norse mythology, the "Wolves of Ragnarok: Skoll and Hati." Just as Odin's Ravens are a symbol of curiosity, wisdom and the thirst for knowledge, The Wolves of Ragnarok are a symbol of mortality, endings and the importance of seizing every moment of life and living it to its fullest.

Wolves appear in many mythologies but nowhere are they more central than in ancient Scandinavian tradition and few events in Norse myth are as central as Ragnarok, the end of the world (literally "Twilight of the Gods") where several wolves play key roles.

Skoll and Hati, the offspring of Fenrir, run through the heavens chasing after the sun and moon. When Ragnarok is upon the world, they will finally catch their prey and swallow them whole marking the end of the world we know and ultimately paving the way for a new world to begin.

However, this sobering tale is not as bleak as it appears at first glance. Consider that the Gods know Ragnarok is inevitable. It will come no matter what they do and they too will cease to exist - pulled back into the chaotic void of Ganungagap from whence our universe was created. Yet they do not allow this fact to stop them from working hard to delay it, building up their world, finding joy, love and friendship while engaging in every adventure life has to offer. In this sense, Ragnarok and the symbol of Skoll and Hati as harbingers doom stand as a reminder that all things end and that we should use every moment we have on earth to the fullest.

FRAMING OPTION: This piece comes in your choice of black or walnut frame.

-----

This layered relief is created from four separate castings using cold-cast nickel silver, brass & copper and stone-infused resin. Patinas, stains, inks and/or paints are applied and the pieces are buffed to bring out highlights. They are then hand assembled, covered with a clear coat and mounted in a beautiful black no-glass shadowbox frame measuring 13" x 13" x 1.5". I find the no-glass frame brings out the true depth of the sculpt, eliminating the glare often associated with traditional glazed framing. Piece can be lightly dusted if needed.

"Wolves of Ragnarok: Skoll and Hati" is limited to 150 signed and numbered pieces.

For advanced information on upcoming projects, shows and exhibits as well as occasional giveaways and exclusive pieces, I invite you to follow my blog (jivotica.com)

** I am making a small number of matched sets available under a separate listing. There you can order one "Odin's Ravens" and one "Wolves of Ragnarok" as a pair and they will come with matching edition numbers. This will also entitle you to purchase the corresponding matching number of any future pieces in this series you may choose to purchase.

Digging a little deeper into the story of Skoll and Hati...

The names of these wolves is well accepted, Skoll means "one who mocks" and Hati means "one who hates." One chases the sun and the other the moon, though there is some debate among academics as to which chases which. More information on this debate can be found at: http://norse-mythology.org/skoll-hati/

The Eddic poem Grímnismál has a few passages that refer to Skoll and Hati. Here is the one that inspired me to create this piece:

Skoll is the name of the wolf
Who follows the shining priest
Into the desolate forest,
And the other is Hati,
Hróðvitnir’s son,
Who chases the bright bride of the sky.

It is worth noting that "Hróðvitnir" is one of the names used for Fenrir, Loki's son, the enormous wolf who himself will be the death of Odin at the time of Ragnarok. It is therefore Hróðvitnir's (Fenrir's) children (Skoll and Hati) who will swallow the sun and moon.

I’m so absolutely in love with these pieces, I just had to include “Freyja’s Cats” and an Yggdrasil to boot! My pieces are a beautiful addition for my new home. Pictures truly can’t show how amazing these pieces are made.

Aric, your craftsmanship and obvious love for your art shows and it’s brilliant. Thank you so much for these beloved pieces. They’ll one day be passed down in my family, because they’re ‘timeless’ pieces of my family’s heritage. You have a loyal customer who definitely will be purchasing more pieces in the near future, and I’m excited to begin receiving the miniatures of the month; I had to subscribe because I enjoy your work. Thank you so much!
