Thomas Dellert,
FIRE the Sword of Siegfried

Description of the Piece
Oil painting on canvas 1984 made from oil paint burnt onto the canvas with small flame thrower and with an inter antique sword representing the sword of SIEGFRIED in the Wagner Opera Der Ring des Nibelungen In mythology, legend or fiction, a magic sword is a sword with magical powers or other supernatural qualities. Renowned swords appear in the folklore of every nation that used swords. In some traditions, the sword is ascribed no powers of its own. It is famous because it is the hero's sword, or because of its origin, as when a god gives it to the hero. Other swords keep their wielders safe or destroy their enemies. A more localized motif is the sword that has been broken and must be reforged, commonly found in Northern Europe. Such a sword symbolizes the initial defeat and loss of honor of its wielder. Subsequent victory and the restoration of honor is achieved by reforging it, either at the wielder's hand or that of his heir. In the Nibelungenlied, Sîfrit (the Middle High German version of "Siegfried," the equivalent to Norse Sigurd) discarded Gram in exchange for another magic sword, Balmung (= "destruction"). Wagner's version of the story calls the sword Nothung ("child of necessity/distress"), rather than Balmung.
