The chief Norse god and ruler of Asgard, Odin is depicted here in this fantastic bust. Known as a patron of wisdom, war, poetry, magic and the hunt, he is displayed here as he is often portrayed; a one-eyed god of aged wisdom and valor. Head and shoulders are shown here, with his cloak swept back over the shoulders and concealing the plates of his armor. From beneath his horned helm, his beard and hair flow out, braided in the Norse fashion to rest upon his chest, but not concealing the firm set of his jaw and the stern line of his eyes, one of which is covered with a patch. All of this is displayed with fantastic detail, with wonderful attention paid to the ornamentation displayed upon his helm and patch. Great for the altar or home, this bust stands approximately 11 1/2" tall and 9" wide and is sculpted of cold-cast resin, providing a vivid presence for the Norse chief of Gods where ever you wish to put it.
