Pronunciation: Owd-hoom-lah
Audhumla is the primeval cosmic cow who came into existence at the beginning of time through shaping of the melted Ginnungagap ice. She lived off the Niflheim ice, licking pieces of salt and hoar frost. The frost giant Ymir lived off of her milk.
While licking the original Ginnungagap Ice, Audhumla formed the shape of a man which became Buri, who later fathered Bor, and the grandfather of Odin, Vili and Ve.
