At Ragnarok Thor does battle with the Midgard Serpent. Thor defeats the mighty snake, but due to its poison, Thor dies after taking nine steps away. Hlothyn is another name for Jord (Earth Mother). Thor is the son of the Earth. This is quite a gruesome image. I wanted to depict the horror of battle mixed with the ooze of poison.
