FIGURES OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY: LOKI The son of two Jotuns and blood-brother of Odin, Loki represents the ambiguous relationship between the gods and the Jotuns. He is dynamic, unpredictable, and a direct opposition to the fixed order. He is known as the Sly One, the Trickster, and the Shape Changer. However, Loki’s mischievous nature gradually darkens, resulting in the death of Balder. Loki will remain bound until the coming of Ragnarok.
The Norns of Norse-German-Scandinavian mythology spin the threads of fate at the foot of Yggdrasil, the tree of the world. The Norns introduce the last act of Gotterdammerung, Wagner's fourth opera of the Ring cycle
The Norns (Three Wyrd Sisters) The Yggdrasil tree is tended by the NORNS, who live near it. Each day, they water it with pure water and whiten it with clay from the spring to preserve it. The water falls down to the earth as dew.
