This awesome sketch art card of the goddess Frigga from Norse Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Craig Yeung :iconcsyeung: for our Classic Mythology trading card set.



Frigga (Frigg) - Norse Mythology Frigga was a major goddess in Norse Mythology. She was the wife of Odin, and is the "foremost among the goddesses" and the queen of Asgard. She was also described as having the power of prophecy yet she does not reveal what she knows. Frigga was described as the only one other than Odin who is permitted to sit on his high seat Hlidskjalf and look out over the universe. The English term Friday derives from the Anglo-Saxon name for Frigg, Frige. Frigga is the mother of Balder. Her stepchildren are Thor, Hermr, Heimdallur, Tr, Bragi, Varr, Vli, Skjldur, and Hr. Frigg's companion is Eir, a goddess associated with medical skills. Frigga's attendants are Hln, Gn, and Fulla. The asterism Orion's Belt was known as "Frigg's Distaff/spinning wheel" (Friggerock) or "Freyja's Distaff" (Frejerock). Some have pointed out that the constellation is on the celestial equator and have suggested that the stars rotating in the night sky may have been associated with Frigga's spinning wheel. Frigga also spun the clouds and mist with her spinning wheel. The Norse name for the planet Venus was Friggjarstjarna 'Frigg's star'. Frigga's name means "love" or "beloved one". Frigga's hall in Asgard is Fensalir, which means "Marsh Halls." This may mean that marshy or boggy land was considered especially sacred to her but nothing definitive is known. Frigga was a goddess associated with married women. She was called up by women to assist in giving birth to children, and Scandinavians used the plant Lady's Bedstraw (Galium verum) as a sedative, they called it Frigg's grass).
