Frej Bronsfigur

Also called Fro, Frey was of the Vanir race of Nordic gods (fertility gods). He was the son of Njord, a god of the sea. Frey was, obviously, a fertility god (in a long tradition of phallic gods of other eras throughout history). His sister Freya was god of sex and later of war and death. The faithful made offerings and sacrifices to Frey to ensure good harvests and fertile marriages. The flame giant Surtr killed Frey at Ragnarok, the doom of the gods.

The original of this 11th century statue was found at Rällinge, Sömland, Sweden, here reproduced in bronze. It stands 3-1/2 inches tall and weighs 12.7 oz. Made in Sweden
