Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Auðhumla is the name of the primeval cow which is created out of the melting primeval hoar-frost. Four streams of milk flowed from her udders and fed the giant Ymir, whilst Auðhumla licked Buri, who is the progenitor of the gods, free from the salty ice. [1]
