Artwork Explained: Loki

This week we are dropping the exciting and highly anticipated Norse inspired Loki apparel range designed by the super talented Pyros! We love to make designs that our audience ask for and we had quite a few requests for a design based on the Norse trickster Loki and today we are so excited to introduce this collection to you! Let's explore the Norse character who inspired this collection below. 

Loki was a trickster God who was considered not to be good or evil who had the ability to change his shape and sex. Although Loki's father was a giant Loki was still included in the Aesir.

Loki was portrayed as a companion of the great Gods such as Odin and Thor and aided them with clever plans but also caused a lot of difficulty and embarrassment for them and got himself in tricky situations. Loki was also considered an enemy to the gods, attending events uninvited and demanding their drink. 

Although Loki is considered a major villain in Norse mythology, it is actually Loki's children who were some of the most terrifying characters in viking mythology. The children Loki had with the giantess were Fenrir the terrifying wolf, Jormangandr the great serpent, and Hel the goddess of death and queen of Niflheim.

These children were feared by the Aesir Gods and were also prophesied to be the cause of their destruction, the Ragnarok. Loki had other children with his Aesir wife Sigyn, Narfi and Vali but unlike the other children these children were destined to pay for their father's mistakes. Loki also had one final child with the great stallion Svathlifari, an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir which he mothered when he turned himself into a mare. 


We hope you love this range just as much as we do.
