Frigga is the goddess of marriage and motherhood.

She often accompanies Eir, a goddess with medical skills, and her handmaids Hlín, Gná, and Fulla. The origin and etymology of the term Frigg can be found in many Nordic cultures, both in the Scandinàve ones as in the Old Norse (genitive Friggjar) or in the Swedish word friacandidate for marriage” or in the Icelandic frjáto love“, either in the Old Saxon Frilady“, or in the English Frig, or in the Germanic Frijo. Furthermore, Frigg is a word related to Sanskrit, in which the definition priyatil appears, which means “wife“.

Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue

This Viking God Tyr Statue with his hand in Fenrir‘s mouth is made of cold cast resin, and has a beautiful metallic bronze finish that gives it the look of metal. The statue has hand painted accents to show off the wonderful detail. It makes a great gift for lovers of Norse Mythology. Tyr is the invincible warrior of the Nordic pantheon, and far older than all the others of Asgard. Tyr is the god of single combat, victory and heroic glory in Norse mythology. He is said to have sacrificed his right hand to help bind Fenrir, the wolf who, when set free, is destined to devour the Sun. Týr is a god in Germanic mythology, a valorous and powerful member of the Æsir and patron of warriors and mythological heroes. In Norse mythology, which provides most of the surviving narratives about gods among the Germanic peoples, Týr sacrifices his hand to the monstrous wolf Fenrir, who bites it off when he realizes the gods have bound him. Týr is foretold of being consumed by the similarly monstrous dog Garmr during the events of Ragnarök. The interpretatio romana generally renders the god as Mars, the ancient Roman war god, and it is through that lens that most Latin references to the god occur. For example, the god may be referenced as Mars Thingsus (Latin “Mars of the Assembly Thing“) on 3rd century Latin inscription, reflecting a strong association with the Germanic thing, a legislative body among the ancient Germanic peoples. By way of the opposite process of interpretatio germanica, Tuesday is named after Týr (Týr’s day), rather than Mars, in English and other Germanic languages. In Old Norse sources, Týr is alternately described as the son of the jötunn Hymir (in Hymiskviða) or of the god Odin (in Skáldskaparmál).

Due to the etymology of the god’s name and the shadowy presence of the god in the extant Germanic corpus, some scholars propose that Týr may have once held a more central place among the deities of early Germanic mythology. In wider Germanic mythology, he is known in Old English as Tiw and in Old High German as Ziu, all stemming from the Proto-Germanic theonym Tiwaz, meaning “the God“. Little information about the god survives beyond Old Norse sources. Týr is the eponym of the Tiwaz rune, a letter of the runic alphabet corresponding to the Latin letter T. By way of the process of interpretatio germanica, the deity is the namesake of TuesdayTýr’s day” in Germanic languages, including English. Various place names in Scandinavia refer to the god, and a variety of objects found in England and Scandinavia seem to depict Týr or invoke him. The name of a Gothic deity named Teiws (later Tius) may also be reconstructed based on the associated rune tyz. In Old Norse poetry, the plural tívar is used for “the gods“, and the singular týr, meaning “a god“, occurs in kennings for Odin and Thor. Modern English writers frequently anglicize the god’s name by dropping the proper noun’s diacritic, rendering Old Norse Týr as Tyr. The Proto-Germanic masculine noun tiwaz (tiwoz) means “a god, a deity“, and it probably served as a title that came to be associated with a specific deity whose original name is now lost. It stems from Proto-Indo-European deywós, meaning “celestial, heavenly one“, hence a “god” (Sanskrit deváheavenly, divine“, Old Lithuanian deivas, Latin deusa god, deity“), itself a derivation from dyeus, meaning “diurnal sky“, hence “daylight-sky god” (Sanskrit: Dyáus, Ancient Greek: Zeus, Latin: Jove).

The Germanic noun tiwaz is further attested in the Finnic loanword teivas, found as a suffix in the deities Runkoteivas and Rukotiivo. The Romano-Germanic deity Alateivia may also be related, although its origin remains unclear. Due to linguistic evidence and early native comparisons between Tiwaz and the Roman god Mars, especially under the name Mars Thingsus, a number of scholars have interpreted Tiwaz as a Proto-Germanic sky-, war- and thing-god. Other scholars reject however his identification as a “sky-god“, since tiwaz was likely not his original name but rather an epithet that came to be associated with him and eventually replaced it. Fenrir instead, (also known as Fenris in Old Norse), is a giant wolf from Norse mythology, born from the union between the god Loki and the giantess Angrboða, together with the queen of the dead Hel and the Miðgarðsormr. Fenrir’s name, which probably means “Wolf of the moor“, or “Wolf of the swamp“, is also used metaphorically to indicate giants, compared to wolves in several texts. His other names are Fenrisúlfr, that is “Fenrir’s wolf“, Hróðvitnir that is “wolf (enemy) of fame“, Þjóðvitnir that is “wolf (enemy) of the people“, Vánargandr that is “wolf (demon) of the river Ván” where this is the river that is created from its saliva. Fenrir is generated in the JárnviðrIron Forest“, where the 2 wolves Skoll and Hati also come from. Like his father, he has an out of the ordinary intelligence and even manages to speak thus making himself a strong opponent both physically and mentally. Viking God Tyr and the Binding of Fenrir Statue measures: 9.5 inches / 24 cm x 7.5 inches / 19 cm x 9 inches / 23 cm.

This beautiful Thor statue depicts Thor Odinson Wielding the Mjolnir Hammer, fully clad in armor and battle attire. It is a bust statue so he will a gorgeous decor for your home. In Norse mythology, Thor is a Hammer-wielding God associated with lightning, thunder, storms, sacred groves and trees, strength, the protection of mankind, hallowing, and fertility. Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic peoples, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the Germanic expansions of the Migration Period, to his high popularity during the Viking Age, when, in the face of the process of the Christianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjolnir, were worn and Norse pagan personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his popularity.

Due to the nature of the Germanic corpus, narratives featuring Thor are only attested in Old Norse, where Thor appears throughout Norse mythology. Norse mythology, largely recorded in Iceland from traditional material stemming from Scandinavia, provides numerous tales featuring the god. Thor wields the Hammer Mjolnir, wears the Belt Megingjörð and the Iron Gloves Járngreipr, and owns the Staff Gríðarvölr. Thor’s exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr, and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök, are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology. Into the modern period, Thor continued to be acknowledged in rural folklore throughout Germanic-speaking Europe. Thor is frequently referred to in place names, the day of the week Thursday bears his name (modern English Thursday derives from Old English Þunresdæg, “Þunor’s day“, and names stemming from the pagan period containing his own continue to be used today, particularly in Scandinavia. Thor has inspired numerous works of art and references to Thor appear in modern popular culture. Like other Germanic deities, veneration of Thor is revived in the modern period in Heathenrycontemporary Germanic Paganism“.

The English weekday name Thursday comes from Old English Þunresdæg, meaning “day of Þunor“. It is cognate with Old Norse Þórsdagr and with Old High German Donarestag. All of these terms derive from the Late Proto-Germanic weekday ÞonaresdagDay of Þunaraz“, a calque of Latin Iovis DiesDay of Jove“, modern Italian giovedì, French jeudi, Spanish jueves. By employing a practice known as interpretatio germanica during the Roman period, ancient Germanic peoples adopted the Latin weekly calendar and replaced the names of Roman gods with their own. Beginning in the Viking Age, personal names containing the theonym Thórr are recorded with great frequency, whereas no examples are known prior to this period. Thórr-based names may have flourished during the Viking Age as a defiant response to attempts at Christianization, similar to the wide scale Viking Age practice of wearing Thor’s hammer pendants. The Mjolnir so, is the hammer of the thunder god Thor in Norse mythology, used both as a devastating weapon and as a divine instrument to provide blessings. The hammer is attested in numerous sources, including 11th century runic Kvinneby amulet, and the Poetic Edda, a collection of eddic poetry compiled in the 13th century, and the Prose Edda, a collection of prose and poetry compiled in the 13th century.

The hammer was commonly worn as a pendant during the Viking Age in the Scandinavian cultural sphere, and Thor and his hammer occur depicted on a variety of objects from the archaeological record. Today the symbol appears in a wide variety of media and is again worn as a pendant by various groups, including adherents of modern Heathenry. The etymology of the hammer’s name, Mjolnir, is disputed among historical linguists. Old Norse Mjolnir developed from Proto-Norse melluniaR and one proposed derivation connects this form to Old Church Slavonic mlunuji and Russian molnija meaning “lightning” (either borrowed from a Slavic source or both stemming from a common source) and subsequently yielding the meaning “lightning-maker“. Another proposal connects Mjolnir to Old Norse mjǫll meaning “new snow” and modern Icelandic mjalli meaning “the color white“, rendering Mjolnir as “shining lightning weapon“. Finally, another proposal connects Old Norse Mjolnir to Old Norse mala meaning “to grind” and Gothic malwjanto grind“, yielding Mjolnir as meaning “the grinder“. Thor Odinson Wielding Mjolnir Hammer Bust Statue measures: 15 inches / 38 cm x 15 inches / 38 cm x 10 inches / 25.5 cm.
