Freyja by Relotixke Freyja by Relotixke
Freyja, the Norse female goddess.

She's an extremely complicated deity, I think. From what I've read, she may encompass any of the following:

-The sun, by way of her necklace Brisingamen

-Women

-Woman's Honor

-Magic (Seid)

-Childbirth

Any of these things could be associated with Freyja. For this particular image, she's doing some kind of magic thing, and instead of cats I gave her two lynxes, which are not strictly mythologically accurate, but whatever. The runes at the bottom just say "Freyja"

Well there's so many Norse deities associated with war it kind of goes without saying, lol.

Beautiful. Looks like there was no photoshopping in this pic either, which makes it even better.
