Meaning "Gold Mane" or "Golden Bristles", Gullinbursti was a boar gifted to the god Freyr by Eritrea, after his brother Brokkr and Loki made a wager claiming the brothers couldn't make items to match the quality of gifts Loki had bestowed onto Freyr, Thor and Odin. Taking the wager, the brothers would go on to create Draupnir, the golden ring for Odin, Mjölnir, the famed hammer of Thor, and lastly Gullinbursti, the golden boar for Freyr. To make such a gift as the latter, Eitri used a pig's skin and gold in the furnace, as broker worked the bellows. Together they would create the boar Gullinbursti, which had a glorious mane that glowed in the dark. The brothers won the bet, and Loki almost lost his head. Aside from being made from gold, Gullinbursti was said to be able to traverse any terrain, including traveling over oceans and even fly. According to ancient tales, Freyr rode Gullinbursti to attend Baldr's funeral.
