VESTIGES OF JÖRMUNDGANDER IN LOKI’S ARMOR???
The first time I saw this picture (loki standing sideways with the armor on a black background) and saw the piece of armor that covers the shoulder and arm part, reminded Jörmundgander, the sea serpent son of Loki and thought “will Jörmundgander the decorative motif of the armor? “…but I am left with the question and not look around. However, every time I saw the same image appeared again the question, so I started looking.
The first thing to note is that the belt across the chest armor Loki is a shape very similar to the one in the shoulder. Then I noticed that the top of the helmet has clearly the form of a snake’s head and looking better, the triangle that covers part of the front, as the language of the creature. But what I found irrefutable is a snake, is the figure of the armor that covers the top of the right shoulder … a snake showing his tongue bipedal.
Would not surprise me is why they had chosen to design the costume…the snake was thrown by Odin to the sea surrounding Midgard, knowing the damage that was intended to cause, and on the other side, is the rivalry with Thor, which led them to the final battle in which both died…that sound familiar? Loki pushed into exile for their actions and forever vying with Thor?
