The Hávamál Project – Day 26, verse 27
When I first chose this verse I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I just let the ink fly. With no preconceived notions other than make a mess. Days later when I sat down to work on Verse 27 I immediately saw the face of a man with his mouth sewn shut. This got me thinking of the story of Loki who ends up with his mouth sewn shut. As I thought about the verse and the story the rest of the image came together. I certainly don’t think Loki witless, but often his mouth gets ahead of him. The same can be said of many of us. Even intelligent people can open their mouths when they should keep them shut.
