Hand-carved large statuette of the god Thor made of cherry wood
Hand-carved large statuette of the nordic god thor made of cherry wood. Thor (also spelled thor or tor, old norse rr) or thunor (old english unor), in younger, especially german sources, mentioned under the name donar (onar, rune) or even more archaically thunraz (pragerman unraz) is in germanic and norse mythology god of thunder, rain, heaven and fertility of the earth. He is the guardian and executor of justice.

Protects blacksmiths, sailors and fishermen, peasants. Most information about it comes from late icelandic sources and many of them may not relate to other germans and older periods. He is the second most important god after odin, who is his father.

His mother is fjörgyn, the goddess of the earth. Thor's wife is sif, with whom he has a daughter, trd. He also has two sons, mdi and magni, but with the giant jrnsax. Also referred to in the literature as sathr ("thr vozka") or thunderlord. Thor is a classic depiction of a strong and brave viking warrior with the figure of a hulk.

Dressed in furs with reddish red hair and a beard braided in his braids, he usually holds a powerful hammer in mjöllni's hand. One of the attributes of thor is the powerful hammer mjöllni, forged by the dwarves brokk and sindri. The hammer is so heavy that only thor and his son magni can lift it. But mjöllni not only uses thor to fight the giants, which are his main enemies, but also to plow the land and thus improve the crop. In order for thor to rule the hammer safely, he has two more magical items: gloves that hold the hammer back, and a belt of strength that increases its already enormous strength tenfold.

In addition to the inseparable hammer, god is often accompanied on his journeys by the goats tanngnjst and tanngrisni, who pull his chariot to make the rumble of his wheels sound like thunder. When thor eats them in the evening, he keeps his bones and skin, and in the morning the goats are whole again. His servants are tjlfi and röskva. Another of his frequent companions and whisperers is loki, odin's blood brother. He is, in fact, the source of most of thor's troubles, from which he then helps him again under the threat of violence.

This item is made of cherry wood.
