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, what they come to find are a vast number of gold game pieces each in the likeness of a god, beast or hero that had 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. I am endeavoring to create the most comprehensive collection of figures from Norse mythology ever crafted by a single artist.
Every month I create one new Mini Myth, each accompanied by a mini story card that highlights notable aspects of the character. It is my intention to represent every named god/goddess, creature and monster found in the mythology as well as the legendary figures from the sagas and even some of the major historical figures of the age. Each Mini Myth stand 2-3" tall and is presented in a cold cast brass finish, hand-weathered and antiqued to appear like something found at an archeological site.
