Depicting Tyr, this special Viking figurine is ideal for your altar, home decoration or just to have the Lawgiver of the Norse Gods by your side!
Tyr is the ancient god of War and the Lawgiver of the gods. The bravest of the gods, it is Tyr who makes the binding of Fenrir possible by sacrificing his right hand. At one time he was the leader of the Norse Pantheon but was supplanted by Odin much later.
Tyr was the son of Odin though he is made out to be the son of the giant Hymir. Like Odin, he has many characteristics of the earlier Germanic gods of battle. Parallels in other mythologies along with archaeological discoveries relating to a one-handed god suggest that this character is very old and was known in Northern Europe somewhere between one and two thousand years before Snorri Sturluson included it in his Prose Edda. Similarities can be found in the one-handed Naudu in Irish mythology and in Mitra, just god of the day, in Indian mythology.
The statue is exquisitely crafted from beautiful ash wood with a highly detailed design and a good weight to it. It makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in Norse Mythology.
