Skadi is the Norse Goddess of winter, and the hunt, and is spoken of in the Norse sagas as being a jotunn, or spirit or goddess of nature. This wonderful statue embraces Skadi the huntress, portraying her as a woman of winter, clad in a sweeping fur cloak and high boots as she hunts with a bow and a wolf by her side. Girded in leathers for the hunt, with a quiver of arrows slung over her shoulder, she holds aloft a flame in her free hand, while the arrow she keeps knocked at her bow burns at its tip. No detail is spared in the portrayal of Skadi, from the laces on her boots to the padding and rivets within her leathers. It is all beautiful worked from the cold cast resin from which she is sculpted to portray her stepping over the stones of some mountain stream, in a manner that vividly captures both the beauty and grace of the huntress as well as lending an impression of a deeper wisdom that the Jotunn possesses. The statues stands 9 1/2" tall and 6" wide, and has been hand painted so as to lend the impression has been cast of copper and bronze.
