    In the literature, the Norne of the present day is called "Werdandi" or "Verdandi", meaning: the one who becomes. I could not find anything about "Werdani" as the sculptor called you ....
    After consultation with the artist Eckhard Herrmann, I have learned that it is indeed a spelling mistake, which is quickly eliminated.

    The Nornen (Old Norse nornir) are in Norse mythology fate-destroying female beings, some of which are descended from gods, others from dwarfs or elves. Within the Indo-European religions and mythologies there is a relationship with the Roman fates and the Greek moires.
    Three fateful women are called by name: their names are Urd (fate), Verdandi (the one who is coming) and Skuld (guilt, what should be). Their names are considered Nordic equivalents of popular medieval conceptions of time in the form of personifications of the past (Urd), present (Verdandi) and future (Skuld). Even though their names are young, they seem to go back to an old Germanic notion of a nameless trinity of fateful women.

    Althüttendorf (MOZ) They sit on a throne, as befits goddesses. Urd, Verdandi and Skuld took their seats on huge boulders. There, the Norns await their coronation. This Saturday the sculpture group will be unveiled by Eckhard Herrmann.
