Depictions of Tyr
Yesterday we brought you the facts surrounding Tyr – well, what little we truly know of the god anyway – one of the gods who returns in Aera: The Return of the Ancient Gods by Markus Heitz. Today, we’ve done a little research (read: googling) to bring you a few depictions of this magnificent god.
And how about going back to the source? This is Tyr in a viking depiction from around 700 AD. Frankly, I think the bottom one is the least flattering – I’m not sure he’d be entirely happy with that. Thank god the gods have only manifested in the fictional world of Aera, or I think we’d have some explaining to do . . .
