Loki's Brood by the German artist Emil Doepler, illustration from page 43 of Walhall, die Götterwelt der Germanen, Martin Oldenbourg, Berlin. 1905.

The drawing depicts the Norse god Loki's three children by the giantess Angrboda (shown in the background): Fenrir the wolf, Jörmungandr the serpent, and Hel the jötunn and Queen of the Dead in the realm of Hel. All three children, abused by the gods of Asgard, contribute to Ragnarök, the Twilight of the Gods.
