God of War Fan’s Mimir Head Sculpture Is a Complete Work of Art
A sculptor shows off their impressive rendition of Mimir’s severed head from God of War, and even gains the attention of the game’s developers.
A skilled God of War player has just revealed an impressive sculpture of Mimir’s talking severed head. Kratos’s recent journey across the Nine Realms of Nordic mythology earned widespread critical acclaim when it launched on the PlayStation 4 a few years ago, and excitement for the upcoming sequel God of War Ragnarök builds with every passing day and rumor. In the meantime, talented fans have celebrated the God of War reboot by recreating Kratos’ signature Blades of Chaos and the God of War version of Thor’s legendary Mjolnir with an impressive level of detail, in addition to great fan art and cosplays of characters like Kratos and Freya.
Kratos acquires plenty of useful weapons and items as he travels with his son Atreus to spread his late wife’s ashes across the highest peak in the Nine Realms in God of War, as well as meeting a wide range of memorable characters – friend and foe alike. One of Kratos and Atreus’s most helpful allies is Mimir, a former advisor to Odin and the Gods of Asgard who is sealed inside a tree by the vengeful All-father for aiding the Giants of Jötunheim before the events of God of War (2018). He is later found by Kratos and Atreus, and the former cuts off Mimir’s head to take with them on their quest. From here, the disembodied head of Mimir provides guidance and stories of the old Gods, much to Atreus’s wonder and Kratos’ annoyance. In this role, Mimir became quite popular with fans and has inspired fan-made Christmas ornaments and PlayStation 5 console accessories in the years since his gaming debut.
Earlier this week, Twitter user and sculptor SChepashov posted a pair of images of their latest work: a life-sized sculpture of Mimir’s severed head from God of War (2018). This impressively detailed bust features a striking gold and dark gunmetal grey finish, and can even light up with a foreboding orange glow as depicted in some of SChepashov’s previous posts detailing the work they put into bringing God of War’s Mimir to life. In the comment section, several users have praised SChepashov for their skill in capturing Mimir’s likeness, with some of the positive messages and reposts even coming from Sony Santa Monica’s official account.
Fans will likely get to hear more of Mimir’s jokes and stories in God of War: Ragnarök, the highly-anticipated follow-up that is set to launch later this year on both current PlayStation consoles. While the exact release date for God of War: Ragnarök is still unknown, there are plenty of rumors hinting that the game could arrive sometime in November – assuming that it isn’t being delayed until next year. Insider accounts have suggested that this might not be the case though – God of War director Cory Barlog recently noted that God of War Ragnarök is already playable, and voice actor Ryan Hurst revealed that he wrapped up his recordings as Thor earlier this month.
As the gaming world waits for Kratos’s next (and final) adventure through the Nine Realms of Asgard, talented fans like SChepashov continue to impress with detailed artwork and sculptures of God of War‘s most memorable allies – even gaining the attention of developer Sony Santa Monica in the process. While SChepashov’s highly-detailed bust of Mimir might not provide players with memorable tales of the Gods, it perfectly captures the charming dismembered head that provided some of God of War‘s most humorous moments.
