In Norse mythology, a valkyrie is one of a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle, the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.
In this stunning work by Hans Makart, we particularly like the vibrancy of the colours which is the hallmark of the artist's painting style. The yellows and reds provide a striking contrast against any dark coloured jacket.
