Art Nouveau brooch/pendant
Featuring an elegant and elaborate floral motif, this antique pairs carefully crafted yellow gold with enamel - including an enchanting, transparent plique-a-jour backdrop - depicts a single pink-toned poppy flower.
My take on the king god of Norse mythology. Got a little tired of seeing depictions of him as this old guy with a short white beard and golden armour. In the myths, Odin spent a great deal of his life travelling the world to learn and gain knowledge. The antlers were added because I think an ancient god should be a bit more “primal” than the stories made up by men in the viking age.
This is the design that will be used in a comic I am planning to make called The Eye of Odin.
This reminds me of the Thor in Cornelius Jakkheln’s great book Gudeness Fall (Fall of the Gods), a crazy heavy metal version of Norse mythology :)
I just love this picture!
