There probably isn't anything much more bad-ass than a Norse Valkyrie. Beautiful, godlike, warrior-woman who descend from Valhalla and decide which warriors will live and and die upon the battle field. Their name, Valkyrja, literally means "chooser of the slain." Kind of a bitter-sweet thing, really, to have a beautiful woman choose you, only to learn that you've been chose to die. Well, it ain't all bad. You get to party in a great heavenly mead hall with all the warriors who have died before you. Until Ragnarok, the war at the end of the world, when all the dead warriors and the Valkyries will ride into battle as the earth is destroyed. Such a cheerful theology.

This statue is a gorgeous reproduction of the Valkyrie named "Mist." She is caught in mid-leap, clouds exploding from her heel, body taut and ready for a fight. A long spear rests in her right hand, angled expertly, a battle-scarred shield held in her left. The sculpt is masterful, with rich details and beautiful, Norse embellishments on most of her gear.

The Valkyrie Rising statue is sculpted from a high-quality poly-carbonate, which is then bronzed using a cold-cast technique that retains even the most minute of details -- from the feathers of her winged helmet to the scrollwork on the dagger sheath on her hip.

But... but in a *good* way.
I think.
