Thora is the boss of the village, though visitors assume her husband, Magnus Mucklechopper is the big cheese. She rules him with an iron ladle, and though she has her son, Sven Shortpants, to look after, she still manages to do the cooking, cleaning and longship building without raising a sweat. Her longship building is renowned for its skill as she can carry and split a log that takes two good men to do. Unfortunately her cooking is renowned fi4 al, the wrong reasons. Thora is one of a cast of Peerie Viking characters of my own design, digitally painted and mounted in Ivory to fit any standard 7 x 9” frame.
