Yggdrasil

£9.99


Description

A2 poster depicting  Yggdrasill,  in Nordic mythology  the world tree,  a giant ash supporting the universe. One of its roots extended into the underworld; another into Jötunheim, land of the giants; and the third into Asgard the  home of the gods. At its base were three wells: Urdarbrunnr  (Well of Fate), from which the tree was watered by the Norns (the Fates); Hvergelmir (Roaring Kettle), in which dwelt Nidhogg, the monster that gnawed at the tree’s roots; and Mimisbrunnr (Mimir’s Well), source of wisdom, for the waters of which Odin sacrificed an eye. After Ragnarok  (Doomsday), the world tree, though badly shaken, was to be the source of new life.
