Frigg (Frigga, Freyja, Holda) is the mother Norse Goddess and wife of Odin. Frigga's tender, nurturing side was widely recognized. Her sacred animal was the goose. In Germany she was worshiped as the goddess Holda or Bertha and was the original Mother Goose. When she shook out her blankets, it began to snow.
In addition to being a protector of women in labor, Frigga ensured fertility and was also the goddess called upon to bring a woman love and marriage. She was also called upon by those who were dying, to ease their transition into the after-life. Frigg was hand carved in basswood.
