Odin, der nordische Obergott, kommt hier in der Form einer schwarzen, androgynen Figur im Anzug daher. Mit einem Schneckenhaus, aus dem eine Hand herauskriecht, und einem ganz normalen Dachs versehen, steht er/sie starr zum Betrachter schauend inmitten von surrealen Bergen. Meisterliche Farbgebung und starke Bilder zeichnen Amalia Mourads Werk aus.
