EIKTHYRNIR


EIKTHYRNIR Oak Thorny The fully grown male deer, or stag, that stood on the roof of val-halla, odin's famous palace, and nibbled at the leaves of the great oak tree laerad, around which the hall had been built. Drops of an unnamed fluid dripped from Eikthyrnir's antlers, and from it came all of the great rivers of the world. Besides being named in Norse manuscripts, Eikthyrnir is por-trayed on a 10th-century carved stone cross from Cumbria, England.
