Sif, goddess of fertility and harvest, is the second wife of Thor, the god of thunder. Her magnificent long blonde hair, like a golden harvest, was believed to help crops grow. One day Loki, the trickster, being in a mischievous mood cut off Sif's long golden hair. Facing an enraged Thor, Loki convinced Thor to spare his life on the condition that he find an even fairer head of hair for Sif, made by the elves from strands of gold and as thin and numerous as the hairs from her head.
