First among the goddesses of the Norse tradition and the wife of Odin, Frigga is generally viewed as the queen of Asgard, and the only one entity aside from Odin permitted to sit aside the high throne of Hlidskjalf. Associated with married women, and viewed as a mother figure, who gave birth to Baldr the famed figure of Norse legend. She was also believed to possess the gift of prophecy, though she kept this gift to herself. Revere her as a figure of love, fertility, and wisdom, for she embodies all of these qualities and more. Here she is portrayed as a lovely woman of motherly age, sitting within the throne that only she and Odin dare rest upon. On one arm is a falcon which Frigga was known to turn into with the aid of a cloak of falcon feathers, while with her other she holds upright the distaff after which constellations were named, and which she was known to use in the spinning of wool. Sculpted of cold cast resin and beautifully painted so as to appear to be a statue of polished bronze, this statue measures 10 1/2" tall and 7" wide. No detail is spared from the Futhark runes that bedeck Frigga`s bared arm and leg to the motherly lines of her face. It is the perfect piece for celebration of this motherly goddess and the Norse pantheon.
