Freya by Holley Bakich
Freya is the Norse goddess of beauty, love, and fertility. As queen of the Valkyries, she is also the goddess of war and death. I show her with her flaming spear, helmet, and robin-feather cape, which gave her the ability to change into any bird. According to myth, cats drew her boar-formed chariot. The two cats I carved were mine--Salvatore and Wanda (the one-eyed wonder cat).
