Odin - figure of a god, carved by hand from fruit wood.
He is the god of the Ases, supreme and first deity, god of poetry, knowledge, magic, god of heaven, war and death. As a storm god, he is the leader of Wotan armies. Odin the finder of the runes, god of rune wisdom and god of protection of the skalds.
Odin, the Allfather, son of the Burr and the Giantess Bestla. Together with his brothers Hönir and Lodur, Odin created the first couple, Askr and Embla, and gave them a soul.
He sits on his throne Hlidskialfin in - Walaskialf Hall in Asgard Castle - and can watch the whole world from there. He is all-seeing and knows what is said and done. At Odin's side are the ravens Hugin (thought) and Munin (memory), who come back every morning from their trip to Odin to report the news of the world. The two wolves Geri (greedy) and Freki (voracious) also accompany him. With his eight-legged stallion Sleipnir, Odin rides against the forces of darkness!
Odin pawns his uncle Mimir to drink the Met Odrörir from the Truth Fountain. He owes his wealth to his golden ring Draupnir, from which eight more rings drip every nine days.
In the fight, he relies on the spear Gungnir, which never misses the target.
The mythical wife of Odin is Frigg, whose old German name Frijamit is identical to the Norse goddess Freyja. Frigg is also identified with Freyja in the Edda. His wife bore him the sons Thor, Baldur and Tyr.
Thus Odin is not only the god of the fallen in Valhalla, but generally the leader of the dead - as the older myth of the wild hunt expresses it, in which all spirits of the dead ride under the guidance of Odin through the night.
His entourage are 13 ghost warriors, the Valkyries (Valkyrjar) as well as the souls of the fallen warriors, the Einherians who live in Valhalla (Halleder fallen).
This gleaming hall stood in Gladsheim, in front of it the Glasir grove, the trees of which bore golden leaves. Above the main door of the hall - which was so high that you could hardly see its gable - hung a wolf as a symbol of war, an eagle above it. The hall itself - covered with shields over spearshafts - had 540 doors through which those 800 people went through when it came to the great battle with the Fenriswolf (the warriors gathered for Ragnaröck).
He was destined for these brave men who came to Odin on the Walstatt after death. Under Odin's chairmanship, the Valkyries pour out the mead.
