Odin's Secrets

Odin knows things that other Gods and Men cannot fathom. His two ravens fly across the world each day and report back to him on the goings on of Midgard. One of his greatest resources for knowledge is the magical preserved head of Mimir, Dead God of Knowledge and Wisdom.

“He was clad in a blue cloak and gave his name as Grimnir (Hooded One), and said no more about himself though he was asked.” – Lay of Grimnir

Original Painting done in Oil.

I think my favourite part of this picture is actually the ravens. They're really well done. They also seem a little... hmm.. less controlled (I suppose) than the rest of the image, which adds an extra element to something really beautiful.
Though the detail work on the belts are also very lovely =)
