About Sif (Siv) the Golden-haired

Sif

by Micha F. Lindemans

The golden-haired wife of the god Thor. There is not much known about her, except that she could originally have been a fertility goddess. Neither does she appear often in the myths.

The best know myth, however, is when Loki the Trickster sneaked into Sif's bedroom and lopped off her hair. Furious, Thor threatened to smash him unless Loki managed to replace the hair. He went to a great cave, the home of the sons of Ivaldi, and told them the reason of his journey. He then asked the dwarfs to spin gold as fine as Sif's hair and imbue it with magic that it will grow on her head. The dwarfs agreed and made a long wave of fine golden strands, which Loki gave to Sif.

Sif

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Sif" (1893) by Jenny Nyström.In Norse mythology, Sif (Old Norse "In-law-relationship"[1]) is a goddess with golden hair and is the wife of the god Thor. Sif is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Sif, is the wife of the god Thor and is known for her golden hair. In the Prose Edda, the euhemerized prologue details that Sif was the most beautiful of women, in Gylfaginning as the mother of the god Ullr (whose father's name is not given), and in Skáldskaparmál as once having had her hair shorn by Loki. Scholarly theories have proposed that Sif's hair represents fields of golden wheat, methods of farming, fertility, and or that she is connected to rowan. Sif Mons, a mons of the planet Venus, is named after Sif.
