Skadi Chooses a Husband
Skadi is a giantess and daughter of Thiassi who was killed while chasing Loki because of a trick. Skadi asks the gods for something in return for the loss of her father. They let her choose a husband by looking at only the gods’ feet. She chooses a pair of white, slim feet which belong to Niord, the wind god.
