Thor Goes Fishing at Mariatorget

See that? Thor’s holding his mighty hammer up above his bushy red head, getting ready to bring it crashing downwards into the Midgård Serpent’s gnarly skull, since that’s simply what Thor does when he goes fishing with giants. But alas, he isn’t perfect, and he lets this catch get away. Serpents are slippery bastards and giants can never be trusted.

Anyway, this grand statue/fountain (Tors fiske) can be found at Mariatorget in Stockholm. It was created in 1903 by Swedish sculptor, Anders Henrik Wissler (and the photos aren’t mine, but rather reproductions of those found at Wikimedia Commons).
