Freyja’s Due

“Many a fearless swordsman
Received the Tears of Freyja
The more the morn when foemen
We murdered; we were present.”

Freya is gold, her tears are gold. She is often sought after as a prize by giants and the many foes of Asgard. She is valued by many for her beauty, but she is so much more, so much stronger, and so she resists!

My first drawing for “Freya Resists” was done as a part of the “Illustrated Voluspa.” The verse referred to the story of “The Wall of Asgard,” a story were Freya is offered as the prize. At the time I also struggled with feeling the pull of many who wanted my time, often people who didn’t even really know me, but wanted a piece of me none the less.

Freya became an allegory for strength. One so beautiful and desired, yet when one looks deeper they will find she is so much more.

I hope that those who struggle with these feelings see Freya, and remember that they too are so much more. You too can RESIST!
