Entry Description

Standing under the ancient night sky of Scandinavia, the magical Light of the North dances upon the snow covered landscape of Sweden. The forefathers believed the Aurora Borealis was light shed from the armor and shield of Valkyrie- the "chooser of the slain". It is as if you can still see the spirits of the fallen warriors dancing gallantly in the Northern sky.
