The 'Lady of the Mountain' (Fjallkonan) is the female incarnation of Iceland. While she symbolised what Icelanders considered to be genuine and purely Icelandic, in her purity she reflected a deep-seated, but unattainable, wish of Icelanders to be a totally independent nation. Fjallkonan is thus not only a national symbol, she also represents the national vision, the nation's ultimate dream.
Hreðe is a warrior goddess, who gave her name to the month Hreðemonað, the Anglo-Saxon name for March. This is the time when winter is making its stormy transition into spring. This pic is actually of Ðryð(Þruðr), daughter of Ðunor(Þorr), but it is my UPG, that Ðryð and Hreðe are one and the same.
