I drew this one today. This is Yggdrasil, the "world tree" of Norse mythology. The nine planes of existence are on the tree. At the top is the unnamed eagle, and at the bottom is Níðhöggr, the dragon who eats the roots of the world tree, and running between them is, of course, (as I'm sure you all are quite well aware) the squirrel Ratatoskr. Around the central plane, our world (Midgard) is the world serpent (or Midgårdsormen) Jörmungandr.

But I'm sure you already knew all of that.
