Poster with the painting Thursday's battle with the giants by Mårten Eskil Winge from 1872.

According to Old Norse mythology, lightning and thunder are heard from heaven when the god Asa becomes angry. He then drives forward in his chariot, pulled by the goats Tanngnjóstr and Tanngrisnir, in search of evil in the form of giants. In the fight against them, he swings his hammer Mjölner and tightens the belt on his power belt Megingjord, which makes his strength grow. Psychologically, Tor is quite simple, unlike Odin. He was worshiped mainly by peasants and slaves.

In Mårten Eskil Winge's interpretation, Tor is strong, determined and fearless. The painting received a very positive reception when it was first shown at the National Museum in 1872. The interest in Old Norse history and the world of gods lay in time. Winge was one of several Scandinavian artists who painted the Asa gods during the 1870s. 

Winge's contemporaries interpreted the painting as a general depiction of the good fight against evil.
