Odin, the all father, is the sacred chief of the Norse Gods. One-eyed and wise, he was a warrior and a wanderer, who was said to have hung from the world tree in sacrifice for wisdom. The Odin Poster celebrates his wisdom as well as his love of joy and poetry, and his sacrifice, with the words of a prayer written by Travis Bowman and the beautiful illustration by Eliot Alexander. Printed upon an 8 1/2\" by 11\" parchment paper, this poster reads: Hail All-father, Wise Warrior, One-eyed wanderer, Come sit at my fire. Tell me of your wisdom stories, The scenes your missing eye sees. You who chooses the slain, Look on my deeds and when my time comes To run the sky with you, Let my end be worthy of song. In the meantime, let me feel Excitement and poetry and fury and joy, Let me understand sacrifice, Think long, Remember well, And Journey Far.
