Hela mask


Hel is a giantess and/or goddess who rules over the identically-named Hel, the underworld where many of the dead dwell. Her name’s meaning of “Hidden” surely has to do with the underworld and the dead being “hidden” or buried beneath the ground.

I had the wood and drawing for this project laying around for quite some time now. And today was the day to make her, to get her from the wood, cause you don't just make a god or goddess (at least I don't, fore every god there is a time).
And there she is, beutiful and frightening at the same time.

Made from a piece of limewood she is 36x16CM.
