Freya on Boar

Freya Goddess of Love and Fertility. She ruled Odin's Valkyries and is reputed to have taught him women's mysteries. Together with her consort-brother Frey she was ruler of the Vanir, ancient matrifocal nature deities who pre-existed Norse patriarchy. In this recreation of a 6th century Swedish bronze image she is shown smiling, encircled by her great necklace Brisingamen. Goddess of the moon, of love, and of childbirth, she gave her name to Friday. Note the floreate detail of her headdress and necklace. See Freya On Boar also.
