Default Images of the Divine

I just found this amazing image of Wotan, and I thought a thread depicting artistic expressions of the Norse gods might be fun.

Isn't this a great image? I am somewhat taken aback by how drawn I am to Wotan - after three decades as a Pagan and no real connection to any male deity - suddenly, I am enamored of one.

This is all cool, but why is it in Norse Paganism? I think we have a general "Images of the Divine" somewhere else?

Yeah, when it pops up on the Recent Posts bit, you don't tend to notice what forum it's linked to.

Oh my God, those are both so wonderful!!

This is silly, but I have to admit, I found it pretty funny.
