Thor In Battle With Jormungand Sculpture, Norse God Wood Carving Statue
Thor is the famous Norse god associated with thunder and lightning. His other claim to fame is that the weekday Thursday (Thor’s day) was named after him.
His most famous possession, which is depicted in this carving, is his hammer, Mjöllnir (“Lightning”). For the heathen Scandinavians, just as thunder was the embodiment of Thor, lightning was the embodiment of his hammer-slaying giants as he rode across the sky in his goat-drawn chariot.
This statue is carved from ash wood that represents the god Thor in battle with Jormungand, the enormous sea serpent who encircles Midgard, the world of human civilization and his worst foe. Thor and Jormungand are destined to finally face each other during Ragnarok, when the two will put an end to each other.
