MYTHOLOGY

In Norse mythology, Midgard is the realm where humanity resides, nestled between the domains of the Aesir and the giants. The name itself signifies a sheltered or safeguarded area at the heart of creation. Encircling Midgard is an impenetrable ocean inhabited by the colossal sea serpent Jörmungandr. Forming a protective barrier around Midgard is a wall crafted from the colossal giant Ymir’s very brows. The formidable Norse gods can access Midgard by traversing the ethereal Bivrost, a bridge that spans the Northern Lights and is watched over by the vigilant god Heimdall.
