Wolf Fenrir

Fenrir Sculpture

Fenrir is a most fearsome wolf in Nordic mythology. The Gods attempted to tether him on two occasions by sheer force, twice he broke free. On the third attempt, trickery was applied to lure him into chains. A suspicious Fenrir would only accept on one condition. Only Tyr was brave enough to put his hand into the savage jaws, knowing the inevitable loss. The ruse failed and Tyre lost his hand in the ensuing struggle and eventually a raging and foaming Fenrir broke free. He even killed Odin before finally being put to death by one of his avenging sons.

These robust sculptures show the moment Fenrir cautiously accepts to be tethered. The motion is coiled and in a subtle balance. These sculptures are appreciable from many angles. The materiality is made to look like concrete to give it a sense of weight and strength. In reality there a are tough but really light due to the materials they are made of. These sculptures are suitable for the indoor environment.
