Illustrated Norse Cosmos

This is a poster commission I did for a folk band ( ). They sent it to buyers of their newest CD this month.
It is a self-contained illustration of the world according to Norse mythology. The places and characters are all labeled in this image; I will be uploading a text-free version soon.

I like the idea of Asgard being a little high up, as it is often depicted, however Odin himself says in the Prose Edda that Yggdrasil's three roots lead to three places, one of them being at Asgard. However, in the Poectic Edda poem of Grímnismál Odin says that under one root Hel lives (Helheimr), under another the jötnar (Jötunheimr) live and under the third lives mankind (Midgardr).
