Hermod rides up to Hel's gate where Balder sits imprisoned beside Hel. From an 18th-century copy of Snorri's Edda. The box contains verses that read: "Hermod rode to the goddess Hel / and met her on Corpse Shore; / never before had such a one ridden / into the jaws of the Inferno. / Though Hel was of that hue, / and hooded in death's black cloak, / Hermod was not afraid / of her body's half-blue color."
