Viking Pyre

There's something about the image of a Viking funeral and a boat being burnt at sea. There's an innate pride and dignity to the proceedings. A natural returning, it's easy to see how a warrior could pause for a moment to look down proudly at his sending off before being carried up to Vahalla.
