Ratatoesk by daniellieske Ratatoesk by daniellieske
In Norse Mythology the squirrel Ratatoesk lives on the world tree Yggdrasil and delivers the insults between the dragon Nidhogre, who gnaws on the world tree's roots, and the eagle, who lives in the crown of Yggdrasil.

Squirrels belong to my favorite animals. I love their quick and elegant moves. When I learned about the squirrel Ratatoesk I just had to paint it.

Red squirrels are oddly docile for squirrels.
They come down from trees and just hug people here.

Have sympathy's for Dragon honestly, Yggdrasil is such a troller. Would make a great movie about this squirrel though...I think Jim Henson.
