(I kind of feel I should be posting my comment somewhere else, but I don't know which thread. So I will simply offer my apologies.)

Okay, connect the dots for me. . .what about the background precludes Muspelheim? Is it the sun streaming in from above? <shrug> Maybe there is a sun over that world. The subsequent picture shows streams of lava and a little bit of sunlight. So I'm not ready to rule out Muspelheim. Otherwise, maybe this is an area on Asgard for trolls? Nidavellir? Svartalfheim? (maybe the dark elves live underground on their world?)

Regarding the little gathering on the rock cliff, of course, not every culture uses white for the bride. (Doing a little poking around, it's not clear the Vikings had a special gown for brides, and I've seen the suggestion of the use of red in medieval times in Scandinavia.) The figure in white could be a priestess arriving for a ceremony, for example, such as some sort of sacrifice.
