Astrild - Goddess of Love

Classical mythology has its cupid. In Nordic culture, it's Astrild who sets hearts afire. The delicate lilt of her name first caressed the ears of literature lovers in the 17th century, when Swedish poet Georg Stiernhielm introduced her to northern Europe in his writing. She remains a fabled figure who spreads love, passion and affection.

To get a sense of the beauty and love which Astrild inspires, one need only look to the estrildid finch. It's fitting that this tiny bird from which Stiernhielm got Astrild's name remains devoted to the same partner for life.
