First in a series of four paintings of Wagner's Ring des Nibelungen.

Loge, at this early stage of the Ring, knows well that the end of the gods is imminent. Staying behind as the gods cross the Rainbow Bridge into Valhalla, he debates whether to destroy the gods with flickering fire or let their eventual demise occur on its own.
