Herron re-living (or dying) the dream that was the only time that war was ever glorious. Depicted here collecting Her entitled half of those that died in battle to receive in Her hall, Odin would always let Freyja get the first pick before He consented to the Valkyries escorting the rest of the fallen to Valhalla. The dead warriors did not mind either way. Christian warriors on the other hand, may be in for a surprise as to Whom awaits them at this place where Ends Meet.
“The Fair One” of Norse mythology, Freyja is a goddess associated with love, sexuality, beauty, fertility, seiðr (Norse magic), gold, fine possessions, war, and death. She is a passionate seeker after pleasures and thrills. Accompanied by two blue cats that can change in size and pull Her chariot at times. Wearing the magical necklace Brísingamen proudly (which She promiscuously slept with four dwarves to attain), She also dons a cloak of falcon feathers that enables Her to fly in bird form.
