Freyja, alternatively spelled as Freya or Freja, literally means “the Lady” in Old Norse, and is likely the most known and prominent goddess in Norse mythology, and she is commonly associated with numerous areas of influence, including love, fertility, beauty, sex, war, and seiðr magic.
She is the only female Vænir deity named in the primary Norse sources, and is considered to be a pre-eminent goddess, renowned for her beauty, charm, and sensuality.
This print, however, relates to her association with the halls of the dead in Norse mythology. When warriors die on the battlefield, half are taken to Valhall, while half are taken to Freyja’s Folkvangr.
This is how Freyja is described in the Prose Edda:
“The sixth is Freyja, who is ranked with Frigg. She is wedded to the man whose name is Odin; their daughter’s name is Hnos, and she is so fair that all things fair and precious are called, from her name, Hnos. Odin went far away. Freyja weeps for him, but her tears are red gold. Freyja has many names, and the reason therefor is that she changed her name among the various nations to which she came in search of Odin. She is called Mardol, Horn, Gefn, and Syr. She has the necklace Brising, and she is called Vanadis.”
