Greece
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

Freyja by elven21
Freyja
IMPROVED VERSION

Coloured pencils on A4 paper, February 2009.

Freyja is the Nordic goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Blonde, blue-eyed and beautiful, she is described as the fairest of all goddesses. She is also associated with war, battle, death, magic, prophecy and wealth. She wears her enchanted necklace, Brísingamen, made of gold and amber. She often rides on a chariot drawn by a pair of large cats, called Gib-cats. Being a warrior goddess, among her many roles, Freyja is cited as receiving half of the dead lost in battle in her hall, Fólkvangr, whereas Óðinn would receive the other half at Valhalla.

I used Norwegian Forest Cats as reference for the Gib-cats.
