The Protectors Of Iceland: My Fantasy Paintings Inspired By Icelandic Myths And Music

I did these paintings for the album “Með Vættum” by the Icelandic metal band Skálmöld. The inspiration comes partly from Heimskringla, an Icelandic Saga, but also from the amazing lyrics written by Snæbjörn Ragnarsson.

The album tells the story of an unknown heroine who grows up with the wights (mythical creatures), protecting the land from harm.
