Baldr Statue, Norse God Wood Carving Sculpture
In Norse mythology, Baldr (also spelled Baldur) was the fairest, wisest, and most gracious of all the Aesir. He had a dream of his own death and, since dreams are prophetic, became so depressed that his mother Frigg made every object on earth vow never to hurt Baldr. All objects made this vow except mistletoe.
Frigg had thought it too unimportant and non-threatening to bother asking it to make the vow. When Loki, the mischief-maker, heard of this, he made a magical spear from this plant. He hurried to the place where the gods were indulging in their new pastime of hurling objects at Baldr, which would bounce off without harming him. Loki gave the spear to Baldr`s brother, the blind god Hoor, who then inadvertently killed his brother with it.
His death is seen as the first in the chain of events that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the gods at Ragnarok. Baldr will be reborn in the new world, bringing goodness and peace to all.
The figurine is made of environmentally friendly materials, covered with oil and beeswax, such a coating is not only environmentally friendly, but it is also very pleasant to the touch and gives a magnificent look to the tree. It makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in Norse Mythology.
