Sylvan Spirit
by Ulf (2022)

In the murky depths of the Nordic forest... A beautiful maiden - pure as the light of the sun... perhaps her body IS the light of the Sun, Shining in the Darkness...

Ancient Germanic culture speaks of mysterious women, often called wood-wives or wish-wives, who dwell in the dark depths of the forest...

The old sacred forest must surely be her favorite abode as that is where the Gods and Goddesses sit enthroned in the groves and in those ancient trees...

Is she of the Aesir or the Vanir? Or merely a Human in Goddess form? perhaps an Elf, made of light? Or the Curse of the Devil as some fore warn...

Is she one of Odin's Valkyries? A maid of war, haunting the dark woodlands...

...or is she the spirit of the woodlands itself?

Do you think you know...

Who is this beautiful and mysterious maiden?
