Clock - wall relief "Odin's head" - bronzed and partially colored., made of polyresin (artificial stone).
He is High God of the Aes, highest and first deity, god of poetry, of knowledge, of magic, heaven, war, and god of death. As storm god he is leader of Wotans armies. Odin, the finder of the runes, god of the rune wisdom and god of the skalds.
Odin, the all-father, son of Burr and the giantess Bestla. Together with his brothers Hönir and Lodur, Odin created the first human couple, Askr and Embla, and gave them a soul.
He sits on his throne Hlidskialfin the hall Walaskialf in Asgard Castle and can watch the whole world from there. He is all-seeing and knows what is being said and what is being done. On Odin's side are the ravens Hugin (thought) and Munin (remembrance) who return each morning from their journey to tell Odin about the news of the world. Likewise, the two wolves Geri (greedy) and Freki (greedy) accompany him. On his eight-legged stallion Sleipnir he rides against the forces of darkness!
Odin pledges his uncle Mimir his eye to drink from the truth well the Met Odrörir. His wealth is due to his golden ring Draupnir, from which drip eight more rings every nine days. In combat, he relies on the spear Gungnir, who never misses the target.
Odin's mythical wife is Frigg, whose old German name Frijamit is identical to the Nordic goddess Freyja. Also in the Edda Frigg is identified with Freyja. His wife gave birth to his sons Thor, Baldur and Tyr.
Thus Odin is not only the god of the fallen in Valhalla, but generally the leader of the dead, as the older myth of the Wild Hunt expresses, in which all the spirits of the dead ride under the guidance of Odin through the night.
His entourage are 13 Ghost Warriors, the Valkyrjar and the Souls of the Fallen Warriors, the Monarchs who live in Valhall (Halled Fallen).
This gleaming hall stood in Gladshome, before it the grove Glasir, whose trees bore golden leaves. Above the main door of the hall, which was so high that one could scarcely see its pediment, a wolf was hung as a symbol of war, above it an eagle. The hall itself, covered with shields over spear shafts, had 540 doors through which those 800 Einherjers walk when it comes to the great fight with the Fenris Wolf (the warriors gather for Ragnaröck). He was destined for those brave men who came to Odin after death on the Walstatt. Under Odin's presidency, the Valkyries plentifully give away the mead.
The Vegvísir is shown on the dial of the clock.
The Vegvísir (Icelandic: signpost) is a symbol that comes from the Icelandic magic tradition of the Galdrastafir. The Vegvísir is represented in the grace manuscript from the 19th century. There it says: "If that symbol is carried, the wearer should not get lost in a storm or wind, even if the path ahead is unknown". The symbol is probably not known to the Vikings, at least it cannot be proven. The name Viking compass is therefore wrong, as is the reference to the nine worlds.
Made and cast from polyresin (artificial stone).
