Nine Days | Art Print
This is The Saxon Storyteller's take on one of the most well known tales of Norse mythology - Odin's sacrifice of himself to himself.
In his relentless pursuit of wisdom, the one eyed god is depicted wounded by spear and hanging upon Yggdrasil with the severed head of Mimir among its roots. It is said that he remained hanging for 9 days and 9 nights and was rewarded on the final day with the knowledge of runic secrets and magic.
"9 Days" is available as a standalone print or as part of Saxon Storyteller's Second Print Series.
Material & Make
The artwork you will receive was printed locally using high quality inks and paper to maintain the clarity of colour and image intended by the artist.
Your piece will arrive on 250gsm uncoated art board and should be handled with care (it’s preferable to only touch the edges of your print) and we recommend mounting these in a frame behind glass.
About The Artist
The Saxon Storyteller is an illustrator known for his incredible ability to capture the character and theme of artefacts and historical figures. Reminiscent of Saxon and Viking iconography, his subject matter ranges from members of the lore (such as Ragnar Lothbrok) to those of Tolkien (like Gandalf and other members of the Fellowship). You may also recognise his work as the key illustrator of the Nordic Mythology Podcast, where his images appear unique to each episode and its content.
On Northern Fire, you can find the artwork of Saxon Storyteller on clothing, prints, and pins.
