The name “giraffe” has its earliest known origins in the Arabic word zarāfah perhaps borrowed from the animal’s Somali name geri. The Arab name is translated as “fast-walker“. In early Modern English the spellings jarraf and ziraph were used, probably directly from the Arabic, and in Middle English orafle and gyrfaunt, gerfaunt. The Italian form giraffa arose in the 1590s. The modern English form developed around 1600 from the French girafe. “Camelopard” is an archaic English name for the giraffe, it derives from the Ancient Greek (kamēlopárdalis), from (kámēlos), “camel“, and (párdalis), “leopard“, referring to its camel-like shape and leopard-like colouration.

Alucard Statue, Video Games & Castlevania Statues, Alucard “Castlevania: Symphony of The Night” Statue

Alucard Statue, Video Games & Castlevania Statues, Alucard "Castlevania: Symphony of The Night" Statue

Alucard “Castlevania: Symphony of The Night” Statue

This Alucard Statue is highly detailed and capturing the Gothic fantasy style from the Castlevania series, “Castlevania: Symphony of the Night“, and a die-cast sword, plus an authentication card. Adrian Fahrenheit Țepeș (Adorian Fārenhaitsu Tsepeshu), better known as Alucard (Arukādo), is a fictional character in Konami’s Castlevania series of video games. His first appearance in the series was in the 1989 game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, but he is best known for his role in the critically acclaimed Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, released in 1997. In the series, Alucard is the son of Dracula, the antagonist of the Castlevania series. Due to his human mother, Lisa, Alucard is a dhampir, a half-human, half-vampire. His mother’s death and admonition not to hate humanity caused him to take up arms against his father. In Dracula’s Curse and Castlevania Legends, he fights against his father alongside the vampire hunters of the Belmont clan, and he is featured as the protagonist of Symphony of the Night. As the offspring of an unnatural bond between Dracula and a human woman named Lisa, Alucard had special powers and was destined to be stronger than any human but not potentially as strong as his father. After Lisa was killed, having been mistaken for a witch, Alucard grew up under the influence of his father, whence he was taught in the dark arts and molded into a warrior who would one day fight for the side of evil.

Alucard‘s existence did not come without quirks, as the gentle, human side of his mother always seemed to cloud his “better judgement“, as Dracula would have put it. At her death, Alucard was by his mother’s side. She insisted that he not take his anger at her death out on the humans, as their lives are already full of hardship. With those words, she had a profound influence on Adrian’s thinking. His mind wandered as he questioned his father’s will. After standing by for as long as he could, he broke away from his father’s army and disappeared. Understanding that Dracula was going to impose his wrath on the people, Alucard would turn his efforts toward destroying his father’s army, hopefully encouraging him to reconsider. Furthermore, he chose to go under the name “Alucard“, Dracula’s name in reverse, to represent that he stood for beliefs opposite those of his father. Alucard is an adept swordsman and typically wields one-handed swords. Alucard’s other attacks use dark magic. As a shapeshifter, Alucard can change himself into a bat, a wolf, or even mist.

A Flower Bouquet is a collection of flowers in a creative arrangement. Flower bouquets can be arranged for the decor of homes or public buildings, or may be handheld. Handheld bouquets are classified by several different popular shapes and styles, including nosegay, crescent, and cascading bouquets. Flower Bouquets are often given for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or funerals. They are also used extensively in weddings as well as Olympics Medal Ceremonies. Bouquets arranged in vases or planters for home decor can be arranged in either traditional or modern styles. Symbolism may be attached to the types of flowers used, according to the culture.

The arrangement of flowers for home or building decor has a long history throughout the world. The oldest evidence of formal arranging of bouquets in vases comes from Ancient Egypt, and depictions of flower arrangements date to the Old Kingdom (2500 BCE). The sacred lotus was often used, as were herbs, palms, irises, anemones, and narcissus. In some cultures, ancient practises still survive today, for example in Ikebana, the art of flower-arranging that comes from Japan. The oldest known book on flower-arranging is Japanese and dates from 1445. Simplicity and linear form are core features of Ikebana, which has had a great influence on Western flower arranging since the late 19th century. Flower-arranging as an art form was brought to Japan by Buddhist Monks, who learned it while in China. In Ancient China, flower-arranging developed into a highly refined art form, based on the principle that life is sacred, including the life of plants, therefore cut flowers were used sparingly in carefully planned arrangements. Flowers were a traditional ritual offering among Buddhists, however, and remain so. In Europe, flower arranging as a formal art was first documented among the Dutch, who “in particular, painted wonderful informal arrangements of flowers. In the 18th century, arrangements were used to decorate the houses of the wealthy families and the aristocracy”. 24k Gold Plated Flowers Bouquet Vase “with Colorful Crystals Butterfly” Statue measures: 4 inches / 10 cm x 1.5 inches / 4 cm x 1 inches / 2.5 cm.

Rise Kujikawa (Arabian Armor Version) Statue, Video Games & Persona Statues, Rise Kujikawa “Persona 4: Dancing All Night” Statue

Rise Kujikawa (Arabian Armor Version) Statue, Video Games & Persona Statues, Rise Kujikawa "Persona 4: Dancing All Night" Statue

Rise Kujikawa “Persona 4: Dancing All Night” Statue

The Persona series is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and from the popular rhythm game in the series Persona 4: Dancing All Night comes this Rise Kujikawa (Arabian Armor Version) Statue, known to her fans as Risette, dressed up in her Arabian Armor outfit! The intricate accessories that adorn her clothes have all been carefully sculpted giving Risette an elegant appearance even while wearing a rather revealing outfit. Rise Kujikawa is one of the main characters from Persona 4. She is a popular idol who returns to Inaba for a brief hiatus. She is a first-year student at Yasogami High School. She quits her job, citing health reasons, and moves to Inaba during the course of the game. After you rescue her, she will obtain the Persona Himiko and join your cause. Rather than fighting alongside you, however, she will aid you by providing you with the location of future victims. Rise Kujikawa is a cheerful girl and one of the most popular idols in Japan known as “Risette“. Supposedly, she had even performed in Iwatodai (the setting of Persona 3) 2 years in the past, though a blackout implied to be caused by the Arcana Hermit boss ruined that particular concert. However, she quits her job and moves to Inaba to live with her grandmother, tired of the spotlight. Shortly after arriving to Inaba, Rise is kidnapped and taken to the TV world, where her other self is manifested.

Rise’s Shadow represents her anger at being stereotyped as an airheaded popstar, represented as a sex symbol. When the protagonist and his friends come to rescue her, Rise accepts her Shadow as part of herself, stating she does not have a real self. Immediately after, she gains the Persona Himiko, a black humanoid in a white dress with a satellite dish in place of a head, which she uses to help the Investigation Team to stop Teddie’s Shadow. In an interview, Atlus’s Masaru Nanba noted that “Risechie” would not translate well into roman letters for the west, and that the French-sounding “Risette” was chosen instead. This also changed her catchphrase from “Rise-Cheese” to “Push Risette” (as in “push the reset button“). Recovering from her experience in the TV world, Rise joins the Investigation Team to track the culprit behind the murders in the town, taking Teddie’s spot in fights, analyzing enemies and advising her comrades. During Yu’s interactions with Rise, she is initially happy for leaving behind the title Risette. However, numerous reminders of her time in the spotlight, a new replacement idol and a letter from her biggest fan, make her regret her departure. Depending on the player’s actions, Rise may end having an intimate relationship with Yu. Realizing that Risette is also part of her true identity, she voices her plans to return to her idol job by spring.

Following this, Himiko evolves into Kanzeon, a white humanoid with a more complex satellite dish than Himiko. In Persona 4 Golden, Rise’s Persona can evolve once more into Kouzeon, gaining a head resembling a telescope instead of a satellite, 2 more pairs of arms, and green skin. In Golden, Rise also takes more of an active part in battle, enabling her to directly support the party by giving powerful buffs or picking up fallen fighters. Rise is the player’s Social Link to The Lovers, in the animated series, her friendship with Yu is symbolized by his Persona Leanan Sidhe. She is also shown to have a not-so-subtle crush on the protagonist, who she simply refers to as Senpai throughout the game, and flirts with him consistently, regardless of social standing. She appears in Persona 4 Arena as a commentator, with an impostor teasing the main characters across the story. She becomes a playable character in the console version of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax using a microphone as her weapon, and during these events, her support Persona, Himiko, was transformed for combat during her confrontation with Elizabeth as a result of Rise’s resolve to be able to fight on her own. Rise Kujikawa “Persona 4: Dancing All Night” Statue measures: 6 inches / 15 cm x 4 inches / 10 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm.

Blizzard Overwatch Reaper Statue, Video Games & Overwatch Statues, Reaper Ultimate Death Blossom Statue

Blizzard Overwatch Reaper Statue, Video Games & Overwatch Statues, Reaper Ultimate Death Blossom Statue

Blizzard Overwatch Reaper Ultimate Death Blossom Statue

Celebrate the dynamic universe of Overwatch with this premium, polystone Blizzard Overwatch Reaper Statue sculpted by Dominic Qwek. “Death walks among you“. This ruthless mercenary cannot be reasoned with or even bound to the grave. Gaze upon the herald of the end. Behold the Reaper. No detail has been lost in recreating Reaper’s Ultimate Death Blossom. Reaper is one of the heroes in Overwatch. He is a wraith-like terrorist who sets out to kill his former comrades to feed his desire for revenge. His Hellfire Shotguns, the ghostly ability to become immune to damage and speed increase, and the power to step between shadows make Reaper one of the deadliest beings on Earth. Some speak of a black-robed terrorist known only as the Reaper. His identity and motives are a mystery. What is known is that where he appears, death follows. The Reaper is an extremely volatile mercenary, a ruthless and remorseless killer responsible for terrorist attacks across the world. He has fought in many armed conflicts in the last decades, showing no loyalty to any cause or organization.

Survivors have described a black shadow ghosting unscathed through the most hellish battlefields. The few bodies recovered of those he kills are pale, empty husks drained of life, their cells showing signs of intense degradation. It is possible that he is a byproduct of failed genetic alteration which forces his cells to simultaneously decay and regenerate at a hyper-accelerated rate. Those attempting to track his movements have begun to see a pattern in his appearances. They believe that Reaper is hunting former Overwatch agents and systematically eliminating them. Reaper is a tall man with a muscular build, dark skin, and brown hair with a facial beard. After joining Talon, Reaper wears a black robe with a hood, shoulder pads, dark gloves, and boots. He wears a reaper-shaped mask to hide his identity and scarred skin. In Overwatch 2, Reaper now dons a more detailed dark robe with a collar and red accents. He maintains his hood and mask, which is now silver instead of bone-white. Reaper Ultimate Death Blossom Statue measures: 8 inches / 20 cm x 8 inches / 20 cm x 12 inches / 30.5 cm.

Viking God Tyr Statue, Animals, Wolves, Vikings & Mythological Statues, Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue

Viking God Tyr Statue, Animals, Wolves, Vikings & Mythological Statues, Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue

Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue

This Viking God Tyr Statue with his hand in Fenrir‘s mouth is made of cold cast resin, and has a beautiful metallic bronze finish that gives it the look of metal. The statue has hand painted accents to show off the wonderful detail. It makes a great gift for lovers of Norse Mythology. Tyr is the invincible warrior of the Nordic pantheon, and far older than all the others of Asgard. Tyr is the god of single combat, victory and heroic glory in Norse mythology. He is said to have sacrificed his right hand to help bind Fenrir, the wolf who, when set free, is destined to devour the Sun. Týr is a god in Germanic mythology, a valorous and powerful member of the Æsir and patron of warriors and mythological heroes. In Norse mythology, which provides most of the surviving narratives about gods among the Germanic peoples, Týr sacrifices his hand to the monstrous wolf Fenrir, who bites it off when he realizes the gods have bound him. Týr is foretold of being consumed by the similarly monstrous dog Garmr during the events of Ragnarök. The interpretatio romana generally renders the god as Mars, the ancient Roman war god, and it is through that lens that most Latin references to the god occur. For example, the god may be referenced as Mars Thingsus (Latin “Mars of the Assembly Thing“) on 3rd century Latin inscription, reflecting a strong association with the Germanic thing, a legislative body among the ancient Germanic peoples. By way of the opposite process of interpretatio germanica, Tuesday is named after Týr (Týr’s day), rather than Mars, in English and other Germanic languages. In Old Norse sources, Týr is alternately described as the son of the jötunn Hymir (in Hymiskviða) or of the god Odin (in Skáldskaparmál).

Due to the etymology of the god’s name and the shadowy presence of the god in the extant Germanic corpus, some scholars propose that Týr may have once held a more central place among the deities of early Germanic mythology. In wider Germanic mythology, he is known in Old English as Tiw and in Old High German as Ziu, all stemming from the Proto-Germanic theonym Tiwaz, meaning “the God“. Little information about the god survives beyond Old Norse sources. Týr is the eponym of the Tiwaz rune, a letter of the runic alphabet corresponding to the Latin letter T. By way of the process of interpretatio germanica, the deity is the namesake of TuesdayTýr’s day” in Germanic languages, including English. Various place names in Scandinavia refer to the god, and a variety of objects found in England and Scandinavia seem to depict Týr or invoke him. The name of a Gothic deity named Teiws (later Tius) may also be reconstructed based on the associated rune tyz. In Old Norse poetry, the plural tívar is used for “the gods“, and the singular týr, meaning “a god“, occurs in kennings for Odin and Thor. Modern English writers frequently anglicize the god’s name by dropping the proper noun’s diacritic, rendering Old Norse Týr as Tyr. The Proto-Germanic masculine noun tiwaz (tiwoz) means “a god, a deity“, and it probably served as a title that came to be associated with a specific deity whose original name is now lost. It stems from Proto-Indo-European deywós, meaning “celestial, heavenly one“, hence a “god” (Sanskrit deváheavenly, divine“, Old Lithuanian deivas, Latin deusa god, deity“), itself a derivation from dyeus, meaning “diurnal sky“, hence “daylight-sky god” (Sanskrit: Dyáus, Ancient Greek: Zeus, Latin: Jove).

The Germanic noun tiwaz is further attested in the Finnic loanword teivas, found as a suffix in the deities Runkoteivas and Rukotiivo. The Romano-Germanic deity Alateivia may also be related, although its origin remains unclear. Due to linguistic evidence and early native comparisons between Tiwaz and the Roman god Mars, especially under the name Mars Thingsus, a number of scholars have interpreted Tiwaz as a Proto-Germanic sky-, war- and thing-god. Other scholars reject however his identification as a “sky-god“, since tiwaz was likely not his original name but rather an epithet that came to be associated with him and eventually replaced it. Fenrir instead, (also known as Fenris in Old Norse), is a giant wolf from Norse mythology, born from the union between the god Loki and the giantess Angrboða, together with the queen of the dead Hel and the Miðgarðsormr. Fenrir’s name, which probably means “Wolf of the moor“, or “Wolf of the swamp“, is also used metaphorically to indicate giants, compared to wolves in several texts. His other names are Fenrisúlfr, that is “Fenrir’s wolf“, Hróðvitnir that is “wolf (enemy) of fame“, Þjóðvitnir that is “wolf (enemy) of the people“, Vánargandr that is “wolf (demon) of the river Ván” where this is the river that is created from its saliva. Fenrir is generated in the JárnviðrIron Forest“, where the 2 wolves Skoll and Hati also come from. Like his father, he has an out of the ordinary intelligence and even manages to speak thus making himself a strong opponent both physically and mentally. Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue measures: 9.5 inches / 24 cm x 7.5 inches / 19 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm.

Scorpion Bust Statue, Busts, Video Games & Mortal Kombat Statues, Mortal Kombat 11 Scorpion Legends Bust Statue

Mortal Kombat 11 Scorpion Legends Bust Statue

This killer Scorpion Bust Statue is inspired by his earliest video game appearances, the bust features detailed sculpting and paint applications. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge is a 2020 American direct-to-video adult animated martial arts film based on the Mortal Kombat franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. South Korean studio Mir animated the film and was produced by Warner Bros. Animation. The film centers around the titular character seeking his revenge on those who murdered his family and clan after being resurrected by Quan Chi, while Johnny Cage, Liu Kang and Sonya Blade are chosen to participate on the Mortal Kombat Tournament for the fate of Earthrealm. Scorpion, pseudonym of Hanzo Hasashi (name confirmed in Mortal Kombat X), is a wandering undead who leads his life devoured by anger and tormented by pain. Scorpion died from the original Sub-Zero, only to be resurrected by the sorcerer Quan Chi who, in exchange for a new life, asked him to be his trusted and faithful servant. Scorpion, however, wanted above all to take revenge on Sub-Zero and in the end he succeeded, killing his arch-enemy.

Sub-Zero‘s younger brother, however, took on the clothes and name of his older brother, and swore revenge on Scorpion. Having been the subject of many machinations and conspiracies, Scorpion has no allies and is wary of anyone who presents himself as such. He is a ninja and his particular ability is the use of the kunai, with which he grabs or kills opponents. The weapon often wielded by Scorpion is a katana, the “Mugai Ryu“. The distinctive features of the character are the ninja clothing of gold and black color, outwardly appears a young man of average height, medium complexion and eyes without pupils, and it is unknown if he has hair and what color. Under this aspect there is a now skeletal body, with a skull engulfed in flames. In Mortal Kombat X, Scorpion is freed from the magic of Quan Chi and appears as a young man, with oriental features, bearded and with a ponytail. In Mortal Kombat 11, he keeps roughly the same characteristics. Mortal Kombat 11 Scorpion Legends Bust Statue measures: 6 inches / 15 cm x 5 inches / 13 cm x 10 inches / 25.5 cm.

Mortal Kombat 11 Raiden Statue, Video Games & Mortal Kombat Statues, Raiden God of Thunder and Lightning Statue

Mortal Kombat 11 Raiden Statue, Video Games & Mortal Kombat Statues, Raiden God of Thunder and Lightning Statue

Mortal Kombat 11 Raiden God of Thunder and Lightning Statue

The Mortal Kombat continues! The next entry in the knockout Raiden Statue is none other than Raiden himself, protector of Earth. Based on his appearance in the original 1992 video game, this statue sees him drawing up electricity from the earth to launch a lightning attack. Made of high-quality PVC, it features detailed sculpting and paint applications. Designed by Nelson Asencio, sculpted by Salvador Gomes. Raiden is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series by Midway Games and NetherRealm Studios. Based on the Japanese deity Raijin, he is depicted as the god of thunder who possesses control over lightning. He debuted in the original 1992 game and has appeared as a playable character in every main installment except Mortal Kombat 3 (1995) and its first update. One of the franchise’s central characters, Raiden has appeared in various related media outside of the Mortal Kombat games, including guest appearances in NBA Jam Tournament Edition (1995), NFL Blitz (1997), Unreal Championship 2 (2005), and Injustice 2 (2017). He has received a positive reception and remains among the series’ most popular characters. Raiden is another iconic character in the Mortal Kombat series. The god of thunder and lightning, is very strong in the newest installment, Mortal Kombat 11.

Using his special skills, he can perfectly control the course of the fight and keep the enemy at bay. Exceptional mobility during combat allows him to teleport and use the Electric Fly. Raiden is the god of thunder and lightning and, as such, he is immensely powerful and has complete control over electricity. Raiden’s movements in combat are stated to be as fast as lightning in the Konquest Mode‘s lore in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. He can summon lightning bolts with a thought, project electricity from his hands that can paralyze, incapacitate, kill, or force an opponent’s body to move wherever he chooses, create forcefields and blades made of electricity, summon electric orbs that act as shocking traps, use electricity in conjunction with telekinesis to move objects without physically touching them, form massive thunderstorms that shapes the weather and channel electricity through his limbs to strengthen his strikes. He usually keeps behind the scenes in the games and rarely fights, although one notable exception was in Deception, where he fought both Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, and was able to hold his own for most of the fight. Raiden has a plethora of other abilities that are not suited for combat such as creation of interrealm portals, project blinding light from his eyes, raise fallen beings from the dead, take flight and summoning objects such as ships as shown in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. The thunder god is gifted with foresight, and has the ability to see the future in his dreams or simply viewing it in his mind. His precognition can be enhanced by Kamidogu daggers infused Blood Magik, although this prevents his wounds from healing for a while once he has slit himself with the dagger.

He has a degree of enhanced senses as he can track energy signatures and locate the presence of others, preventing stealth attempts on him or simply finding someone who is lost. In Mortal Kombat (2011), it is shown that he can also use electricity to heal and resurrect others. He also has the ability to teleport to another destination by transforming his body into an ethereal state. Despite his godly status, he is not indestructible and has limits. Raiden, like any other god, will have his powers taken away should he enter a domain not native to him, with Outworld being the most prominent example of this. His powers can return to him once he returns however. It is also because of his godly status that he is forbidden to directly participate in any Mortal Kombat Tournaments unless he takes on a mortal form. It should be noted that even without his godly power, Raiden has a millenia of experience coupled with knowledge on 750 forms of Jujitsu and 3 other martial arts and is not to be taken lightly, even in mortal form. He is well versed in the art of Bojutsu, the art of wielding the bo staff in combat. Throughout the years, Raiden has consistently carried his trusty staff with him through the years, although he has wielded other weapons such as Warhammers. Raiden God of Thunder and Lightning Statue measures: 9.8 inches / 25 cm.

Thor Odinson God of Thunder Statue, Vikings & Busts Statues, Thor Odinson Wielding Mjolnir Hammer Bust Statue

Thor Odinson Wielding Mjolnir Hammer Bust Statue

This Thor Odinson God of Thunder Statue is made of designer composite resin, hand painted and polished individually. In the battle of Ragnarok, Thor will defeat the midgard serpent Jörmungandr with the swing of his Mjolnir Hammer. Thor is seen in battle outfit, with crossed long swords, his horned helmet and fearsome mail armor. The prince of Asgard shows his quality, strength and bravery in this ill fated war. This beautiful Thor statue depicts Thor Odinson Wielding the Mjolnir Hammer, fully clad in armor and battle attire. It is a bust statue so he will a gorgeous decor for your home. In Norse mythology, Thor is a Hammer-wielding God associated with lightning, thunder, storms, sacred groves and trees, strength, the protection of mankind, hallowing, and fertility. Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic peoples, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the Germanic expansions of the Migration Period, to his high popularity during the Viking Age, when, in the face of the process of the Christianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjolnir, were worn and Norse pagan personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his popularity.

Due to the nature of the Germanic corpus, narratives featuring Thor are only attested in Old Norse, where Thor appears throughout Norse mythology. Norse mythology, largely recorded in Iceland from traditional material stemming from Scandinavia, provides numerous tales featuring the god. Thor wields the Hammer Mjolnir, wears the Belt Megingjörð and the Iron Gloves Járngreipr, and owns the Staff Gríðarvölr. Thor’s exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr, and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök, are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology. Into the modern period, Thor continued to be acknowledged in rural folklore throughout Germanic-speaking Europe. Thor is frequently referred to in place names, the day of the week Thursday bears his name (modern English Thursday derives from Old English Þunresdæg, “Þunor’s day“, and names stemming from the pagan period containing his own continue to be used today, particularly in Scandinavia. Thor has inspired numerous works of art and references to Thor appear in modern popular culture. Like other Germanic deities, veneration of Thor is revived in the modern period in Heathenrycontemporary Germanic Paganism“.

The English weekday name Thursday comes from Old English Þunresdæg, meaning “day of Þunor“. It is cognate with Old Norse Þórsdagr and with Old High German Donarestag. All of these terms derive from the Late Proto-Germanic weekday ÞonaresdagDay of Þunaraz“, a calque of Latin Iovis DiesDay of Jove“, modern Italian giovedì, French jeudi, Spanish jueves. By employing a practice known as interpretatio germanica during the Roman period, ancient Germanic peoples adopted the Latin weekly calendar and replaced the names of Roman gods with their own. Beginning in the Viking Age, personal names containing the theonym Thórr are recorded with great frequency, whereas no examples are known prior to this period. Thórr-based names may have flourished during the Viking Age as a defiant response to attempts at Christianization, similar to the wide scale Viking Age practice of wearing Thor’s hammer pendants. The Mjolnir so, is the hammer of the thunder god Thor in Norse mythology, used both as a devastating weapon and as a divine instrument to provide blessings. The hammer is attested in numerous sources, including 11th century runic Kvinneby amulet, and the Poetic Edda, a collection of eddic poetry compiled in the 13th century, and the Prose Edda, a collection of prose and poetry compiled in the 13th century.

The hammer was commonly worn as a pendant during the Viking Age in the Scandinavian cultural sphere, and Thor and his hammer occur depicted on a variety of objects from the archaeological record. Today the symbol appears in a wide variety of media and is again worn as a pendant by various groups, including adherents of modern Heathenry. The etymology of the hammer’s name, Mjolnir, is disputed among historical linguists. Old Norse Mjolnir developed from Proto-Norse melluniaR and one proposed derivation connects this form to Old Church Slavonic mlunuji and Russian molnija meaning “lightning” (either borrowed from a Slavic source or both stemming from a common source) and subsequently yielding the meaning “lightning-maker“. Another proposal connects Mjolnir to Old Norse mjǫll meaning “new snow” and modern Icelandic mjalli meaning “the color white“, rendering Mjolnir as “shining lightning weapon“. Finally, another proposal connects Old Norse Mjolnir to Old Norse mala meaning “to grind” and Gothic malwjanto grind“, yielding Mjolnir as meaning “the grinder“.

This Cat is the union of Good and Evil, and inside of this cat appears to be a Vampire Spirit. Cast in high-quality resin and carefully hand-painted this figurine is likely to be the cutest Occult Cat you’ve ever seen. Many cultures have negative superstitions about cats. An example would be the belief that encountering a black catcrossing one’s path” leads to bad luck, or that cats are witches’ familiars used to augment a witch’s powers and skills. The killing of cats in Medieval Ypres, Belgium, is commemorated in the innocuous present-day Kattenstoet (cat parade). In mid-16th century France, cats would be burnt alive as a form of entertainment. According to Norman Davies, the assembled people “shrieked with laughter as the animals, howling with pain, were singed, roasted, and finally carbonized”. (ANGER)

James Frazer wrote that “It was the custom to burn a basket, barrel, or sack full of live cats, which was hung from a tall mast in the midst of the bonfire, sometimes a fox was burned. The people collected the embers and ashes of the fire and took them home, believing that they brought good luck. The French kings often witnessed these spectacles and even lit the bonfire with their own hands. In 1648 Louis XIV, crowned with a wreath of roses and carrying a bunch of roses in his hand, kindled the fire, danced at it and partook of the banquet afterwards in the town hall. But this was the last occasion when a monarch presided at the midsummer bonfire in Paris. At Metz midsummer fires were lighted with great pomp on the esplanade, and a dozen cats, enclosed in wicker cages, were burned alive in them, to the amusement of the people. Similarly at Gap, in the department of the Hautes-Alpes, cats used to be roasted over the midsummer bonfire“. All this for Pure Fear of Cats! (SO MUCH ANGER)

According to a myth in many cultures, Cats have multiple lives. In many countries, they are believed to have 9 lives, but in Italy, Germany, Greece, Brazil and some Spanish regions, they are said to have 7 lives, while in Arabic traditions, the number of lives is 6. The myth is attributed to the natural suppleness and swiftness cats exhibit to escape life-threatening situations. Also lending credence to this myth is the fact that falling cats often land on their feet, using an instinctive righting reflex to twist their bodies around. Black Cat Vampire Statue sizes: 7 inches / 18 cm x 5 inches / 13 cm x 4.4 inches / 11 cm.

Spyro the Dragon with Detailed Base Statue

Styled with highly accurate details from the hit Skylanders series and eponymous video games, this Spyro the Dragon Statue is a perfect addition to the lineup for fans and collectors alike. This Spyro is accompanied with his iconic horns, wings, and spiked mohawk, on a round base with purple cobblestone details. His right front paw rests on a large red gem, hinting at the adventure of his games. Modeled off of the character’s design from many video games, this statue is made from durable PVC painted in a cartoon style. The material is strong enough to survive a few accidental bonks or falls and resists deterioration over time. The base allowing this Spyro The Dragon Statue to stand out as a centerpiece in a prized collection. Spyro is one of the playable Skylanders in the Skylanders video game series, who first appeared in Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure as the title character. He also has a Dark, and a Legendary counterpart, who are available in the 3DS Starter of Spyro’s Adventure and in the Toys R Us Legendary Pack with Legendary Chop Chop and Legendary Bash respectively.

Spyro has a series 3 counterpart called Mega Ram Spyro. Spyro the Dragon is also the main protagonist and titular character of the Spyro the Dragon series and video game and a former mascot for the Sony PlayStation. This iteration is the most prolific, having starred in 10 games (11 if one counts the Reignited Trilogy, and 13 if one counts it as 3 separate games), with one prominent featuring role and a couple of cameos in Crash Bandicoot games. After committing countless heroic deeds and adventures in his world, Spyro was invited by the great Portal Master, Eon, to become a Skylander. The young dragon accepted the offer and agreed to fight for Skylands, a world that holds the potential ability to jump to any point of the Universe through portals. Impulsive and headstrong, he struggled to work in a team at first with his fellow Skylanders, but as time passed, Spyro became one of Master Eon’s strongest leaders in the fight against evil.

He is good friends with two fellow Skylanders, Gill Grunt and Trigger Happy. Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. It’s been said that the Scrolls of the Ancients mention Spyro prominently, the old Portal Masters having chronicled his many exciting adventures and heroic deeds. Finally, it was Master Eon himself who reached out and invited him to join the Skylanders. Now calling Skylands his home, Spyro remains one of its most valued protectors, with evil facing a new enemy, and the Skylanders gaining a valued ally. Spyro the Dragon with Detailed Base Statue measures: 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm x 7 inches / 18 cm x 10 inches / 25.5 cm.
