A custom character design I did for my friend Svarta Perlan.
She asked for a viking Icelandic goat and this is what I came up with.
XD Apparently it went over well. His name is Þór (Thor) I look forward
to seeing what artwork she commissions of him! I’ll be making a few more
refs of him.
Goats play a special part in witchcraft. For example; Aphrodite, goddess of passionate and sexual love, often rode a buck goat. Athena, protectress of warriors, bore a shield made of goat skin. Even Zeus, head of all the other gods, owed his life to a goat, having been nursed by a goat named Amalthea.
The Horn of Plenty we see at the Thanksgiving table harkens back to Amalthea’s broken off horn from which all good things stemmed.
