Legends (Scandinavian mythology)

I came across this 2002 Absolut Legends Collection, by Jean Baptiste Mondino, when I was looking for fairy tale inspired ads for Fairy Tale Week. It contains ads inspired by the myth stories of Old Sweden and since I feel pretty uninspired today I thought I would share them.

Valborg - The fire that chases evil spirits away

Viking - Conqueror of the seven seas

Valkyria - The beautiful godess of the battlefields

Oxdan - The fighter of the matting bulls

Nacken - Virtuoso violinist and stealer of souls

Midsommar - The pagan mistress of Swedish Summer Nights

Lucia - Brings light to the darkest night

Ava - The enchanting dancer in the mist

I tried to look up more information about each myth featured, but I actually had a really hard time finding anything. Something else to add to my list of things I'd like to know more about I suppose.

  2. fuck liquor companies, and love the mythology
