What is the advantage of this Veronese Norse God Baldr Bronzed Finish Statue Baldur Brave Bold?
In Norse mythology, Baldr also spelled Baldur was the fairest, wisest and most gracious of all the Aesir. He had a dream of his own death and, since dreams are prophetic, became so depressed that his mother Frigg made every object on earth vow never to hurt Baldr. All objects made this vow except mistletoe. Frigg had thought it too unimportant and nonthreatening to bother asking it to make the vow. When Loki, the mischief-maker, heard of this, he made a magical spear from this plant. He hurried to the place where the gods were indulging in their new pastime of hurling objects at Baldr, which would bounce off without harming him. Loki gave the spear to Baldr s brother, the blind god Hoor, who then inadvertently killed his brother with it. His death is seen as the first in the chain of events which will ultimately lead to the destruction of the gods at Ragnar k. Baldr will be reborn in the new world, bringing goodness and peace to all. This bronze look statue of Baldr has hand-painted accents, and shows exquisite detail. The statue is 8 3/8 inches tall, 4 1/2 inches wide and 3 1/4 inches deep. Made of cold cast resin, it has the look and feel of bronze. It makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in Norse Mythology.
Customer reviewsSmaller than the Others
As you can see I have Bought from this collection many times. 12 to be exact. And I am always very pleased at the quality and detail of each piece. That is why I have continued to purchase my statues From the unicorn studio but I am a bit disappointed in the Baldur statue I just received. It came fast in on time and the overall detail is exactly what I expect and happy with but for the first time this statue does not match in size with the rest of my collection. I stay with the same collection so that all of my pieces match in comparison to size but this one is much smaller. I took a picture with it along side one and then a couple others and you can see a significant difference and not just the height but the overall Reduced body size of the Baldur and his spear to the other. Unfortunately I don t think this is a manufacture mistake and I hope that they are not reducing the size of their statues from here on out because I would hate to have to discontinue purchasing from them in the future.
