Freya Runestone

As part of this year’s 2nd annual Winternights Festival a runestone commemorating the Goddess Queen Freya was created and dedicated. Many thanks to Danjul and Norsewind for helping with the dedication ceremony and performing their music for it.

The carving of the image of Freya was completed in time for the festival but the remaining rune scripts were not. They have since been carved and then painted in the old traditions. Across the top of the stone are the first 8 runes from the Elder Futhark or “Freya’s Aett” . Below that in the main area of the runestone is a symbolized representation of her. Immediately below that in rune script are the words “Freya the Fair”. It stands just under 70″ high and varies from 34″ to 32″ across being about 35″ deep.
