Tribute to Odin Spell/Keepsake Box
This beautiful box is our tribute to Odin the chief divinity of the Norse pantheon, the foremost of the Aesir. He is called Alfadir, Allfather, for he is indeed father of the gods. With Frigg he is the father of Balder, Hod, and Hermod. He fathered Thor on the goddess Jord; and the giantess Grid became the mother of Vidar.
Odin is a god of war and death, but also the god of poetry and wisdom. He hung for nine days, pierced by his own spear, on the world tree. Here he learned nine powerful songs, and eighteen runes. Odin can make the dead speak to question the wisest amongst them. His hall in Asgard is Valaskjalf ("shelf of the slain") where his throne Hlidskjalf is located. From this throne he observes all that happens in the nine worlds. The tidings are brought to him by his two raven Huginn and Muninn. He also resides in Valhalla, where the slain warriors are taken. The centerpiece of this box is the 'Triple Horns of Odin' with Huginn and Muninn on either side. It measures 8" x 8 1/4" x 1 5/8" and is stained and sealed for protection. We know you will love it!
