Wise Mother of the Ironwood by WintersKnight Wise Mother of the Ironwood by WintersKnight
Angrboda is the consort/wife of Loki and the mother of Hel, Fenrir, and Jormungandr. She is known as the Hag of the Ironwood and is of the Jotun race. She is considered to be a sort of wolf-mother goddess by many.

The spikes on her crown are bones, and I chose to depict her pregnant.

I finally got some better image editing programmes to get the colours to work out. Hooray!

If it helps you any with Frigg.. The on-line traditional poems I read say that "necklace-glad" could very well be an aspect of Frigg. So.. Mengloth might be an aspect of her that you can better relate to. I've always had trouble with her because I revel in correspondences and they compare Friday to Venus ... and I totally despise Aphrodite/Venus . with a PASSION!!!   But the more I read about Frigg the more relaxed I'm getting about her -- I put her back on my "Friday"
And as for the lovely 'Boda, she is the main character in my current, personal "fan-fic" .. and I am writing about her being with child with Hela.
so, thanks for the pic of my beloved "mother" character.
(btw- her other kids are "Fen", twin girls (all 3 shape-shifting wolves) and a rather moody 16 year old boy named Zachary (Zack) who can see psychically, but feels a little out of place at home)
:-P
(I like Mucha's style, too...)

Thank you! Drawing this really upped my opinion of her and made me not as scared of her. She is definitely a wicked baddass, her.

Indeed. She never really scared me to begin with for some reason. Actually, I felt kind of bad for her, what with her having her babies taken away from her.
