In Valhalla, Odin sat on his throne called Hlidskjalf from where he watched over all the Nine Realms. Odin looked for further knowledge in the runes and in order to achieve this, he hung himself from Yggdrasil with a spear in his side for nine days and nights without food or drink.

The artwork features depictions of Odin surrounded by Knotwork, ships and also a depiction of Fenrir.
