Freya is often among the most famed and revered goddesses of the Norse traditions, and is popularly revered among modern adherents to the Norse faiths. She is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, war, and death, and is said to rule the field of Folkvangr, a realm of the afterlife, where half of those who die in battle go. Indeed, it is said that she is chief among the Valkeyries, who go among the fallen and choose those who will go to Folkvangr or Valhalla. As a goddess of magic, prophecy, and fertility, she is frequently invoked for assistance in all manner of things, and was said to be much sought after among the Jotun, who frequently tried to make her their wife.
Depicting her as a figure lithe, feminine beauty, this statue shows Freya cloaked and girded for war with sword and dagger, with a shield leaning by her side, with the rest of her armored attire leaving little to the imagination. She is exquisitely detailed, with no fold of fabric or armor's buckle left forgotten in the artist's rendering, with the statue's hand painted surface appearing as though it were crafted of bronze or copper, though the entire piece is sculpted of cold cast resin. The staute stands approximately 10 1/2" in height and 4" in diameter.
