A giant boar covered in golden bristles that pulled the chariot of Freyr across the sky in Norse mythology. He had the ability to travel faster than nay horse across water and air. Some believe that the Gullinborsti was made entirely out of metal. He was crafted by the Dwarf Brokkr whose name means ‘one who works with fragments’. The emblem of Gullinborsti was used by Swedish Kings as a sign of unstoppable progress.
