Norse Tales

Norse Tales

The aim of my project is to bring the old Nordic tales of Odin, Thor and Loki to life for children unaware of the colourful stories people once believed in. One way I wanted to do this was by creating a world readers could get absorbed into. A short exercise tasked us to use a shoe box to create a small diorama related to our main project.Inspired by Oliver Postgate's Noggin the Nog series, I created a paper and cardboard landscape, only visible through one small peep hole, allowing you a glimpse of what was inside. I hope viewers felt transported into this old magical time of Norse gods.
