Junner.
 
A giant in Scandinavian mythology, said in the Edda to represent the “eternal principle.” Its skull forms the heavens; its eyes the sun and moon; its shoulders the mountains; its bones the rocks, etc.; hence the poets call heaven “Junner’s skull;” the sun, “Junner’s right eye;” the moon, “Junner’s left eye;” the rivers, “the ichor of old Junner.” (See GIANTS.)   1
