In Norse mythology, the Norns are like the Fates. They are female beings who rule the destiny of gods and men. Something about this painting of a mysterious and beautiful blue woman with her eyes closed, reaching out her hand into the twilight is completely entrancing.
This lovely, square print of a painting on canvas would fit perfectly on an altar, fireplace mantle, or on the wall of any room where you want to add a touch of mystery. This magical work of art would make a phenomenal gift for the witch, writer, or artist in your life, or anyone who is mourning or in a place where they need to be reminded that sometimes, you have only to reach for the light, and it will find you.

According to Norse-mythology.org, “In Völuspá, the Norns are mysterious beings who don’t seem to come from any of the recognized kinds of beings who populate the Norse otherworld. They seem to be a category unto themselves. There are exactly three of them, and their names suggest their ability to construct the content of time: one is Urd (Old Norse Urðr, “The Past,” and a common word for fate in and of itself), the second Verdandi (Old Norse Verðandi, “What Is Presently Coming into Being”) and the third Skuld (Old Norse Skuld, “What Shall Be”). They live in a hall by a well (Urðarbrunnr, “Well of Fate”) beneath Yggdrasil, the mighty tree at the center of the Norse otherworld, which holds the Nine Worlds in its branches and roots.”
