Gerðr is the beautiful jötunn maiden for whom Freyr gave up his magical dancing sword (the unstoppable weapon that may have allowed him to defeat Surtr at the battle of Ragnarok). Freyr sent his servant, Skirnir, to  woo Gerðr and ask for her hand on Freyr's behalf. Although she initially refused, after a mixture of flattery and threats, she eventually acquiesced. Gerðr is associated with the earth and her marriage to Freyr can be seen as the divine union of earth and sky.


Each Mini Myth stands 2-3" tall and is presented in a cold cast brass finish, hand-weathered and antiqued to appear like something found at an archeological site.
