Norhalla has joined with artist Micke Johansson of Sweden and has commissioned several pieces of his work. Micke's artwork is unique with intricate designs with a classic knot-style Nordic flare. Each piece he creates tells a story all on its own. We saw his fantastic art and contacted him to produce several works.
We think Micke's magical artwork would be a nice fit to the classic tale "The Children of Odin" by Padraic Colum.
"The Children of Odin" is a classic telling of the Norse sagas and myths as stated in the opening preamble:
"Master storyteller Padraic Colum's rich, musical voice captures all the magic and majesty of the Norse sagas in his retellings of the adventures of the gods and goddesses who lived in the Northern paradise of Asgard before the dawn of history."
This easy to read mythical telling of the Norse stories, with exciting new artwork by Micke Johansson would compliment each other nicely. Each chapter will be illuminated with phenomenal Nordic stylized depictions.
We hope that you will enjoy the wondrous intricate designs highlighting these stories as much as we do!
