This is Seth Insua's take on the throne room of Hrothgar, King of the Danes, who welcomes Beowulf, come to save the people from the threat of the monstrous Grendel, with a lavish banquet.
Meanwhile, Grendel stalks ever closer to Heorot Hall...

 

"It was a great wonder that the wine-hall withstood the bold fighters; that it fell not to the ground, the fair Earth-dwelling; but it was too firmly braced within and without with iron bands of skilled workmanship. There, many a mead bench decked with gold bent away from the post, as I have heard, where the foe-men fought... A sound arose, passing strange. Dread fear came upon each of the North-Danes who heard the cry from the wall, the lament of God's foe arise, the song of defeat; the hell-bound creature, crying out in his pain. He who was strongest in might among men held him too closely."

- Beowulf
