Hel Goddess Wood Carving / Statue

  • Sale
  • Regular price £125.95


Carved from Ash Wood, this statue represents the goddess Hel accompanied by her dog who guards the entry to the underwold, Cerberus (as he's referred to in Greek mythology).

Hel, in Norse mythology, was originally the name of the world of the dead; but later came to mean the goddess of death. She is the daughter of the trickster god Loki and the giantess Angrboda (according to the thirteenth-century Icelandic scholar Snorri Sturluson) and ruled the kingdom called Niflheim, the World of the Dead.

The only surviving myth in which she features prominently is that of The death of Baldur.
