Frigg Photos

    Aegir's Feast
    Here we all are at Aegir’s feast (I’m to the left of Odin, in the middle). Not the greatest picture of me. As I recall, I was quite miffed that Loki had just implied I slept with Odin’s brothers. [The Poetic Edda poem Lokasenna (1895) by Lorenz Frølich. Published in Gjellerup, Karl (1895). Den ældre Eddas Gudesange, page 185.]


    Frigg and Her Ladies
    I quite like this shot of me with my three BFFs, Fulla, Gná, and Hlín. Best maids ever! Love you, girls! [Wägner, Wilhelm. 1882. Nordisch-germanische Götter und Helden. Otto Spamer, Leipzig and Berlin. Page 124.]


    Frigg and Fulla
    Here I am with Fulla. She was helping me choose some jewelry for a banquet. [Murray, Alexander (1874). Manual of Mythology : Greek and Roman, Norse, and Old German, Hindoo and Egyptian Mythology. London, Asher and Co. This illustration is from plate XXXVI.]


    Frigg and Odin
    Date night! We went rowing on the River Iving. [Lorenz Frølich. Published in Gjellerup, Karl (1895). Den ældre Eddas Gudesange.]


    On Her Throne
    Don’t I look regal here? Love the action shot of Gná, riding off on Hófvapnir to do my bidding! [Anonymous. Wägner, W. MacDowall, M. W. Anson, W. S. W. (1902). Asgard and the Gods: the Tales and Traditions of Our Northern Ancestors. London: Swan Sonnenschein & Co., Lim. Page 97.]


    Official Portrait
    Odin and I had our official portraits painted for the throne room. Here, I’m holding my distaff. I like the way this turned out, although I have no idea why the artist thought he needed to include cuddling rams in the foreground. [Uncredited. Guerber, Hélène Adeline (1895). Myths of Northern Lands: Narrated with Special Reference to Literature and Art. The American Book Company. Page 48-B.]


    Spinning Away
    Odin snuck up on me to get this shot; I’m hard at work at my favorite hobby. [John Charles Dollman, “Spinning the Clouds”. Guerber, H. A. (Hélène Adeline) (1909). Myths of the Norsemen from the Eddas and Sagas. London : Harrap. This illustration facing page 42.]


    A Tribute
    A Middle-Earthling subject made this pendant in my honor! [Welschingen-B bracteate (IK 389). c. 6th century. old photograph, original publication unknown.]


    Marital Spat
    Odin and I disagree here about which tribe to favor in the Winnili/Vandal War. [Doepler, Emil. ca. 1905. Walhall, die Götterwelt der Germanen. Martin Oldenbourg, Berlin. Top portion of page 12. Photographed by Haukuruth and cropped by Bloodofox.]


    The Saddest Day
    Here I support my darling son, Balder, as he struggles to overcome an injury from mistletoe. Still can’t believe he’s gone. [Lorenz Frolich. Published in Gjellerup, Karl (1895). Den ældre Eddas Gudesange.]
