Heimdall ~ Norse god of foreknowledge, keen senses👂🏼👁
He is the watchman at the base of Bifrost, the rainbow bridge, where it meets Asgard🌈
He is one of the Aesir gods and from his home, Himinbjörg he watches for the onset of Ragnarok, the doom of the gods.
He requires less sleep than a bird. His eyesight is so keen he can see a hundred miles by day and night.
His hearing is so acute that he can hear grass growing on the ground and the wool growing on sheep🌾🐑
He possesses the horn, Gjallarhorn “resounding horn”, which he blows when intruders are approaching. It can be heard throughout heaven, earth and the lower world.📯
He would sound the horn to summon the gods at Ragnarok when their enemies, the giants, storm Bifrost and enter Asgard to kill the gods. Loki is amongst the giants and he and Heimdall will slay each other as the world burns and falls into the sea.🌊
Heimdall is the son of Odin and is said to be the whitest skinned of the gods and has golden teeth.
