SIGYN

Extremely patient long-suffering wife of LOKI

She married a bad'un. The wife of LOKI and the mother of VALI(2) and NARVI, she remained faithful even after he committed adultery, stayed out all night and killed BALDUR.

As punishment for that, he was bound with the entrails of his own son under three flat stones with a snake dripping poison.

Now SIGYN has the thankless task of catching every drop in a bowl before it falls on him. Every so often she has to nip off to empty the bowl — and he gets it right in the face.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Sigyn graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Sigyn movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Sigyn statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Sigyn. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
