FULLA


FULLA FYLLR, FYLLA Bountiful One of the female goddesses, or asynjur, named by 13th century Icelandic writer snorri sturluson in his work gylfaginning. Fulla wore her hair loose, with a golden band around her head. A virgin, Fulla served the goddess frigg by carrying her basket, tending her shoes, and keeping her secrets. Fulla was one of the three goddesses to whom the dead god balder sent gifts from hel. She received a gold ring.Some scholars believe Fulla was an ancient god-dess of fertility modified over time into the smaller role of Frigg's servant.
