Sweden (1981 SG 1066) Odin on 8-footed steed.

Odin is a Scandinavian god. He was said to sacrifice his eye for wisdom. He gave it up 
in order to drink from the Well of Mimir which bestowed great knowledge. Because of 
this, he is typically depicted as having one eye. He is also depicted wearing a wide 
brimmed hat down low over his face to conceal his one-eyed visage.
