Also Sigunn, Sigryn. She is the faithful wife of Loki and the mother of his sons Narvi and Vali. After Loki contrived the murder of Baldr, the gods bound him in a cave, to 3 huge stones using Narvi's entrails as rope. The frost giantess Skadi (Njord's wife) fastened a serpent above Loki's head.
The venon that dripped from the serpent's fangs was meant to fall into Loki's eyes, but faithful Sigyn sat beside her husband and caught the venom in a wooden bowl. When she goes to empty it, Loki shakes with pain, causing earthquakes.
