A huge 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 Hildisvini was made entirely out of metal. The dwarf Brokkr whose name means ‘one who works with fragments’ crafted him. Swedish Kings as a sign of unstoppable progress used the emblem of Hildisvini.
