According to Norse mythology, Ymir was a primordial being predating worldly phenomena, and thought to be from whom all living things were descended. He was also the founder of the race of frost giants and the grandfather of the god Odin. Odin and his brothers eventually slayed Ymir and dismembered his body, using it to fashion the cosmos and make the earth, and his blood to make the seas, thus creating the new world order.
I visualised Ymir’s primordial form as something collosal like a mountain; a hard frosty glacier, vaguelly humanistic in form yet also an incomprehensible entity in space.
Unlike the accounts which speak of his dismemberment, I wanted to present his death and destruction on a more symbolic and sombre note. The melting of the ice that is his body is the end of his time.
