Ride of the Valkyries by LivingHorus Ride of the Valkyries by LivingHorus
Inspired by Wagner's epic Der Ring des Nibelungen. I've tried to capture a sense of forward motion so wonderfully expressed by the music itself.

I thought Valkyries rode wolves to battle.

I don't know where I first heard it from, but I'm certain I did. I just glossed over the Wikipedia article and it looks like they rode horses in some myths and wolves in others.

Oh mein Gott, this is one of the best Valkyrie pictures Iīve ever seen, it looks epic, such beautiful women and Walhalla in the background, isnīt it?^^

Like a dream from Wagner **
