“Hel” is the goddess of death in Norse mythology and rules the underworld and is the queen of the realm of the dead. She is the daughter of Loki and a giantess and has a rather harsh and cruel character. However, she is not represented as pure evil. Every person who dies from an illness, age, or is considered a coward or dishonorable by the Gods and Goddesses will end up in her realm called Helheim. This in relation to the Viking Age, meant if you didn’t die in battle you would simply just go to Hel. I created this artwork during the winter months of the Corona pandemic, when I really feared death and felt something powerful we humans have no control over is overcoming us. My interpretation of the goddess Hel is an ambivalent figure – powerful and maybe demonic – but not necessarily bad. I included a lot of symbolism in this artwork (like the moon, or the black flower that grows out of her) to show how meaningful and alive this figure can be.
