Freyr Sculpture, Handmade Wood Carving Statue
Honor Your Favorite Norse Gods And Goddesses With This Amazingly Detailed Statue!
Freyr was one of the most widely and passionately venerated divinities amongst the heathen Norse and other Germanic peoples. One Old Norse poem calls him “the foremost of the gods” and “hated by none.” The reasons for this aren’t hard to understand; their well-being and prosperity depended on his benevolence, which particularly manifested itself in sexual and ecological fertility, bountiful harvests, wealth, and peace. His role in providing health and abundance was often symbolized by his fylgja, the boar Gullinborsti (“Golden-Bristled”).
The statue is exquisitely crafted from beautiful ash wood with a highly detailed design and a good weight to it. It makes a great gift for anyone with an interest in Norse Mythology.
It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that Freyr was a frequent recipient of sacrifices on various occasions, such as the blessing of a wedding or the celebration of a harvest. During harvest festivals, the sacrifice traditionally took the form of his favored animal, the boar.
