Binding Of Loki | Organic T-Shirt
The piece depicts the mischievous Loki’s punishment for killing the god Baldr. For his crime, the gods tied him to a stone. A snake was placed above him to drip its venom onto the mischievous god for the rest of time, ensuring his perpetual suffering. His wife holds a bowl above his head to catch the venom and spare her husband from a portion of the torment, but whenever she must empty the bowl the poison reaches Loki and he shrieks in pain.
The specific design is based on a stone carving which can be visited in Kirkby Parish Church, local to Villkat Arts and his home. This inspired his design, which depicts this episode within Nordic mythology in a very specific style, with Loki's horns.
The design by Villkat Arts has been hand printed in the Northern Fire studio.
