Ægir (Old Norse "sea") is the god of the ocean & king of the sea creatures in Norse mythology. He often appears in art as a thin old man with clutching hands & long white hair resembling sea foam, although he is sometimes shown as a giant. The Norse, a seafaring people who knew the sea & its dangers, valued Aegir highly. Aegir & his wife carried a net with which they could trap seafarers & pull them down to their underwater kingdom. Drowned sailors were said to dine at Aegir's banquet hall.
