  1. Let me see if I can help dig out more of those artist credits for you…

    * The carving with Hagalaz Gebo HG is from this page: http://hispaniagothorum.wordpress.com/mitologia/freyala-diosa-del-amor/ although it doesn’t look like they gave credit either to the original artist.

    * The Lokasenna line drawing is by Lorenz Frølich, which is credited in Wikimedia Commons as “Published in Gjellerup, Karl (1895). Den ældre Eddas Gudesange, page 185.” A version that doesn’t crop out the signature is available there: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lokasenna_by_Lorenz_Fr%C3%B8lich.jpg

    * The photograph of the woman with hawk wings is definitely by Maris Pái, who has more such images here: http://marisvision.deviantart.com/gallery/

    * The enthroned Freyja with the blue drape and incense has a signature in the bottom left, but I can’t make it out, and Google isn’t helping this time. ARGH.

    * The picture of Freyr and Freyja riding together is signed Donn P. Crane, which is more clearly visible in larger resolution versions available via Google Image Search.

    * The Line art helmeted Valkyrie with a shield and sword in a frame is listed on another page as (c) Carrie Westfall but I haven’t found confirmation of that.

    * Freyja with a chariot comes in a line art and shaded version, which seem to have different signatures. Jon Gehrls 84 and E. Ade. K. A. seem to be on the line art version. I can’t quite read the signature on the shaded version – J[mumble] K[mumble], but I suspect it’s based on the line art version. As far as I have ever been able to tell, both are out of copyright, being from the turn of the 20th century or so.

    * The Rainbow Bridge image Ukrainian credit is “B. Колінгвуд. «Зішестя північних богів у Мідгард»” which Google translates as “B. Collingwood. “Descent of the northern gods in Midgard”

    * The redhead freyja in the long pale golden dress and girdle is by James Doyle Penrose

    * Blue Freyja with the golden cup and knife is by Kat Harpin according to the Freyja shrine on Northern Paganism.

    * The Freyja with the feather cloak, shield and spear, is from a game… ah, here we go, Age of Empires Ref: http://ageofempires.wikia.com/wiki/Freyja

    * The round modern folk art Freyja is by Sharon McLeod, whose gallery shows it here: http://sharonmcleod.com/gallery/

    Wheee!
