Fenrir Devours the Sun
In this portrait, Gloria of Dyrs Hjarta Art depicts the great wolf breaking from his chains and unhinging his jaw to swallow Sunna - a moment that defines the proceedings of Ragnarok.
As the gods and their enemies devour one another, the battle will claim each warrior and beast in turn, as is foretold by the seeress in Völuspá.
Gylfaginning describes the vast sacrifices the gods went through to bind Fenrir in an attempt to restrain his destruction. But the Völva’s prophecy assures us that his ultimate deed, the destruction of Odin, will occur during Ragnarok nonetheless.
There’s no denying there are different understandings of Sköll and Fenrir (and Garmr) at Ragnarok - Gloria was inspired by Vafþrúðnismál and it’s mention of a great wolf for this piece, which is why it’s titled “Fenrir.”
