Description

A portrait of the Norse version of "Mother Earth", the giantess Jörð (Earth) and her son Þórr (Thor). OK, she probably wasn't understood as looking like this--in fact, apparently the giants could be visualized as quite beautiful when the story demanded it, and Snorri tells us she was included among the gods and goddesses--but I thought this would be a fun way to imagine her. [Edit--replaced with a scanned copy--did some editing to it as well, hopefully all for the good...]
