This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Christian Frederick Nicklaus, the artist behind Art for Valhalla, where he makes beautiful shields, axes, and other weapons. Together with the boys he'll be discussing his own artistic process as well as the unique challenges of criticism and creating art in the age of social media. Other topics include: An upcoming presentation of tattoos by Mathias in Iceland, naming conventions in the Viking age, and the difficulties of shipping axes to foregin countries (even when they are a work of art).
