Hugin and Munin were two mythical ravens that were sent out by Odin to fly around the world every day. They would return by breakfast, whispering what they had seen into his ear. Thus, he learns many things.
Hugin (Old Norse Huginn) comes from the word 'hugr', which means thought. In Skaldic poetry of the Viking age, the raven Hugin is far more common used in various ways, compared to Munin. Warriors were called the 'reddener of Hugin's claws', battles were designated as 'Hugin's feast' and blood were described as 'Hugin's sea'.
This exquisite piece depicts the iconic Hugin resting on a tree branch, while collecting information for Odin.
