"CANOLA" IS THE IRISH GODDESS OF MUSIC AND DANCE. THOUGHT TO BE ONE OF THE OLDEST OF THE IRISH DEITIES, SHE HAS BEEN WORSHIPPED SINCE AS EARLY AS 2,300 BC. "CANOLA "WAS THE MYTHICAL INVENTOR OF IRELANDS LONG CHERISHED SYMBOL, THE HARP, AND HAS BEEN WORSHIPPED AS A GODDESS OF MUSIC MAGIC, WATER MAGIC, DREAMS AND INSPIRATION. A PATRONESS OF MUSICIANS AND BARDS, "CANOLA "AIDS THEIR INSPIRATION AND CREATIVITY.

THE LEGEND OF THE HARP'S CREATION RELATES THAT "CANOLA", FLEEING FROM HER HUSBAND, WAS WALKING ALONG THE SHORE WHEN SHE HEARD A SWEET MURMUR AS THE WIND PLAYED THROUGH THE SINEWS THAT WERE STILL CLINGING TO A WHALES SKELETON. LISTENING, SHE FELL INTO A DEEP SLEEP, AND WHEN HER HUSBAND, FINDING HER THUS, LEARNED THAT THE SOUND HAD LULLED HER, HE MADE A FRAMEWORK OF WOOD FOR THE SINEWS. ON THIS HE PLAYED, AND THE PAIR WERE RECONCILED.

Hel The Norse Goddess Of The Dead Image
HEL IS THE NORSE GODDESS OF THE UNDERWORLD KINGDOM OF HELHEIM. SHE IS THE DARK HAG WHO WALKS THE LINE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH AND THINS THE VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLDS. SHE PRESIDED OVER THE DEAD, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO WERE KILLED IN BATTLE. THOSE WHO DIED HEROICALLY IN BATTLE ENDED UP IN VALHALLA, THE HALL OF HEROES. THE LEGEND GOES THAT WITH A SIMPLE WAVE OF HER HAND SHE COULD CAUSE DISEASE, DECAY, AND DEATH. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER YOUNGEST CHILD OF THE THE TRICKSTER GOD, LOKI AND THE EVIL GIANTESS WHO WAS CALLED ANGERBODA. HER BROTHERS WERE FERRIS (THE EVIL GIANT WOLF) AND JORMUNGARD (THE MIDGARD SERPENT). IT WAS HEL WHO GIFTED ODIN WITH HIS TWIN RAVENS OF PROPHESY AND WISDOM.

HEL HAD QUITE A DISTURBING APPEARANCE, AN UGLY HALF-DEAD HAG WITH GANGRENE LEGS AND A HIDEOUS FACE. IT IS SAID THAT SHE IS BOTH BLACK AND WHITE AND HER BODY WAS SAID THAT HER BODY REPRESENTED BOTH SIDES OF THE SPECTRUM. THE OTHER GODS WERE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH HEL'S APPEARANCE AND AVOIDED HER. THIS MADE HEL VERY UNHAPPY AND LONELY, AND SHE ASKED ODIN IF SHE COULD LEAVE ASGARD. IT WAS THEN THAT ODIN GAVE HER THE WORLD OF HELHEIM TO RULE OVER. SHE WOULD JUDGE OVER THOSE WHO WERE GOOD AND EVIL AND GIVE THEM THEIR JUST REWARDS...THE LEVELS OF 'HEAVEN' OR HELL'.
