  1. "En Loki hafði þá ferð haft til Svaðilfara, at nökkuru síðar bar hann fyl. Þat var grátt ok hafði átta fætr, ok er sá hestr beztr með goðum ok mönnum." "But Loki's relations with Svaðilfara [the horse of a giant] were such that a while later he gave birth to a colt. It was grey and had eight feet, and this is the best horse among gods and men." -Snorri Sturlason, Edda (written around 1220 CE, the latter line a translation by Jesse Byock) This is a conversion of two Unicorn figures into Sleipnir, the horse of the Chieftain of the Norse Gods, Odin. I used the extra legs from the second figure to give Sleipnir the eight legs as indicated by Snorri's Edda, one of our major sources for Norse Myth. I have the whole conversion and painting thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/53558-scandinavian-contest-entry-sleipnir-and-odin/ Since the gods and Jotun (Giants) conflict is often seen as Spring versus winter, I depicted Sleipnir as bringing the spring where he steps. The runestone on the base was made entirely by me. It uses runes from the Elder Futhark and reads the second sentence of the quotation above, save the words "ok monnum" (and men.) I didn't have quite enough room to fit it, and I felt it was expendable. Pity, though. Questions and comments welcome! Feel free to peruse the whole process....
