Thor and the Midgard Serpent by Emil Doepler, #ThrowbackThorsday for 2/5/15

Thor and the Midgard Serpent (by Emil Doepler, 1905). In the battle between Thor and Jormungandr at Ragnarõk, neither survives:

Against the serpent goes Odin’s son.
In anger smites the warder of earth,—
Forth from their homes must all men flee;—
Nine paces fares the son of Fjorgyn,
And, slain by the serpent, fearless he sinks

Völuspá of the Poetic Edda, translation by Henry Adams Bellows, 1923
