The Norse Goddess Sif as imagined by English artist John Charles Dollman in the illustration of page 64 of Myths of the Norsemen from the Eddas and Sagas by Guerber, H. A., Harrap, London, 1909.

The figure in the background is usually given as her husband Thor but makes more sense as the god Loki, coming to cut her hair after she sleeps.
