My last painting is this warrior sculpted by Jun-Sik Ahn for Nutsplanet ....

Olga Zernina painted two versions of this sculpture and it is her magnificent painting that made me want to realize this character in my turn.

The small tattoo on his left arm in the shape of 3 crossed triangles is called the Valknut, and is pronounced Val-Knoot. He is one of the most intriguing signs that the Norse peoples have left, but appears to be related to Odin.

Once my character was defined as a shaman and his relationship to Odin by his tattoo, I wanted to continue with this idea of ​​painting Odin's two crows on the shield, but as the sculptor made a half shield, he didn't there is almost only one crow visible. The one below is just indicated by the feathers of a wing and its tail ...

The name of the two crows is Hugin and Munin. It comes from Old Norse, huginn meaning "thought" or "mind" and Munin "memory". At dawn, they set out and travel through the nine worlds and return the next morning to report to the god Odin what they saw and heard, whispering it in his ear.

Completely painted with acrylics and brushes
