[history meme] seven pairings [1/7] - Loki and Sigyn 

Loki, responsible for the death of Baldr, the wisest of all the gods and was punished for his deeds, Their son Váli was turned into a wolf and killed their other son Narfi (sometimes called Nari). Loki, in an attempt to escape disguised himself as a salmon. However he was caught, imprisoned into a cave bound to a rock with the entrails of his son. Above him hangs a venomous snake that drips poison down upon him. 

Sigyn catches the venom in a bowl, protecting Loki from harm. But when the bowl is full she must empty it into a rock basin in the cave. During those moments, the venom drops onto his face where he writhes in pain. According to Norse legend, this is the cause of earthquakes. Loki will remain bound until Ragnarök when he will lead the monster and giants into battle against the gods.
