Sketch of Forseti

Forseti - Giver of Law

A sketch I drew (with, er, some help now and again) of Forseti giving the law. The Wikipedia article on Him describes the scene. Truth be told, this wasn't exactly how I had originally pictured the God I'm closest to, but it seemed to be what He wanted drawn.

The arm tattoo is a bindrune of Tiwaz (justice, honor, rationality, analysis) and Othala (inheritance, group order, property, safety, inherited values).

There may be some blurring, as I did some softening and balancing with my art software, but the bracelet says "Glitnir" in runes. The oath-ring necklace has three inscriptions: helgi ("holiness," discussed below), lagu ("law"), and a traditional bindrune of Gebo and Ansuz, for "gift of the Gods."

The cliffs in the back represent Frisia.
