Artist's Description

The drawing of Thor was a design originally begun as a picture of Vulcan, God of the Anvil. The further it progress, the image was converted to that of Thor, God of Thunder, from which derived the word Thursday meaning Thor's Day. The original drawing, done on 9" x 12" white 50lb drawing paper, was created using 2b, 4b and 6b drawing pencils. Most surviving stories relating to Germanic mythology either mention Thor or center on Thor's exploits. Thor was a much revered god of the ancient Germanic peoples from at least the earliest surviving written accounts of the indigenous Germanic tribes to over a thousand years later in the late Viking Age. Thor was appealed to for protection on numerous objects found from various Germanic tribes. Miniature replicas of Mjnir, the weapon of Thor, became a defiant symbol of Norse paganism during the Christianization of Scandinavia.
