Artist imagination of Valhalla, Odin's hall of fallen warriors (Einherjar). Unlike Hel that was a rather gloomy and dark place, Valhalla was a blissful after-life location. Here souls were looked after by Valkyries who served them mead.

The image was created in 1896 and was a part of the scenic design of Twilight of the Gods from The Ring of the Nibelungs that was an opera by Richard Wagner (1813-1883).
