Sacred Source -Brisingamen Disk

Home Order

Brisingamen Disk The Sacred Marriage of Frey and Freya is shown in this pictograph dating from about 500 BCE and discovered in Maltagarden, Denmark. Carved upon the sandstone lid of a cremation urn, Freya's ornate necklace Brisingamen may have symbolized the Sun, whose thawing of winter ice gave its solar disc feminine qualities in the Norse/Germanic traditions. Note the phallic god, and the goddess identified by her crescent moon. The fir tree fertility symbol that adjoins Freya has also been identified as an ear of grain.
