Baldr’s Death


Baldr’s death is very strange to me. For the life of me I can’t figure out why they would kill off the most beloved of their gods. And with mistletoe? Just strikes me as very weird. The image above is of Baldr’s funeral. I thought it was very neat. I wonder who’s bending over him – Odinn maybe? Or Hodr? And the four women in the background could be Frigga, Freyja, Sif and Jord perhaps? Got any ideas?
