Freyja, the Norse female goddess.

She's an extremely complicated deity, I think. From what I've read, she may encompass any of the following:

-The sun, by way of her necklace Brisingamen

-Women

-Woman's Honor

-Magic (Seid)

-Childbirth

Any of these things could be associated with Freyja. For this particular image, she's doing some kind of magic thing, and instead of cats I gave her two lynxes, which are not strictly mythologically accurate, but whatever. The runes at the bottom just say "Freyja"

Kat,

I absolutely love this image!  There really isn't a lot (any?) work out there with Freyja being serious and doing the magickal stuff that She is so skilled in.  I've got a request about using this image, and am sending you a DeviantArt note on it. Please let me know if you see the note and what you think.

Warm Regards,

Dan FitzGerald

Well there's so many Norse deities associated with war it kind of goes without saying, lol.

Beautiful. Looks like there was no photoshopping in this pic either, which makes it even better.

Generally I try to avoid doing anything to a painting besides color correction.
