Odin Norse Mythology Supreme God Sculpture Statue Bust – Odin boasts a horned helmet and braided beard. Cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted in faux white bronze as a collectible work of art. Odin is considered the chief god in Norse paganism and the ruler of Asgard. Homologous with the Anglo-Saxon W?den and the Old High German Wotan, it is descended from Proto-Germanic *W??inaz or *W??anaz. The name Odin is generally accepted as the modern translation; although, in some cases, older translations of his name may be used or preferred. His name is related to ?ðr, meaning “fury, excitation,” besides “mind,” or “poetry.” His role, like many of the Norse gods, is complex. He is considered a principal member of the Aesir (Norse Pantheon) and is associated with wisdom, war, battle, and death, and also magic, poetry, prophecy, victory, and the hunt.
