Skadi as depicted on the Skadi Forum.

I have been thinking a lot about the Norse goddesses of late, having just written a short essay on Hel for an online course I'm doing, and I am especially drawn to Skadi, goddess of Winter and the Hunt, amongst other things. Something about the cold remoteness of the Scandinavian landscape that so shapes Norse mythology speaks to me. This wonderful song by Hagalaz Runedance - "Wave Skadi" - captures her exactly as I see her in my mind's eye.
