Wikipedia states: "In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of female figures which soldiers die in battle and which live". The myth continues that the Valkyries bring the fallen to Valhalla; this, the hall of the slain, ruled over by Odin. The myth has inspired countless artists, from the music of Wilhelm Richard Wagner, with Walkürenritt, commonly known as Ride of the Valkyries in English, to the Romantic paintings of Peter Nicolai Arbo with his work, Valkyrie.
