Monstrosities of the dark realms

When total darkness falls on Midgard...
Here we see scenes from Ragnarök, the end of the worlds. On top Odin is depicted in the moment of his death, getting eaten by Fenriz, the giant wolf. The black ship symbolizes Naglfar, the ship of the doomed, made from the fingernails of the dead. The bird symbolizes the rooster Fjalar " The one who knows everything" who warns the giants, that the final battle has started.
