RAINBOW


RAINBOW BRIDGE The common name for bifrost, the bridge that stretched between the human world and the world of the gods, between Earth and heaven. This bridge was made by the gods in three colors—red, blue, and green—giving Bifrost its common nickname.Only in the writings of 13th-century Icelandic historian snorri sturluson was the image of the rainbow associated with Bifrost, according to Old Norse experts. Earlier forms of this Norse myth refer to the Milky Way as the bridge that joins heaven and Earth.
