Hel, goddess of the Underworld in Norse mythology. Half dead, half alive, rules over Helheim, a realm of cold, hunger and famine where those who die of sickness and of old age go. Carvings on her throne present her siblings: the wolf Fenrir, and the world serpent Jörmungandr, all of them children of the god trickster Loki and giantess Angrboða. Digital ink in Painter.
