Myth of the Month
Those familiar with Norse myths know of the world-ending battle, Ragnarok. But, the story arc does not end there. As described in the Poetic Edda, those destined to survive Ragnarok will look out upon a new world as it springs fresh and green from the waters. Amidst the grasses, they will see small glints of gold, which they come to find are a vast number of gold game pieces that we have chosen to represent as the gods, goddesses, beasts and heroes that lived in one of the nine worlds before the end of times. The survivors will play with these figures, recounting the glories of the old gods as they remember and honor them.
This story of remembrance and renewal is the inspiration behind the Mini Myth Collection, the most comprehensive collection of figures depicting the gods, goddesses, creatures, and heroes from Norse mythology ever crafted by a single artist. Each Mini Myth stands 2-3" tall (about the size of a chess piece) and is presented in a cold cast brass finish that is hand-weathered and antiqued to appear like something found at an archeological site. Each pieces is accompanied by a mini story card that highlights notable aspects of the character. As your collection grows, you will come to more fully know the depth and breadth of the culture, history and mythology of the Vikings.
