From the water emerges Ymir. He is a giant in human form.
Two other giants come out of Ymir's armpit. They could reproduce better than he could.
A cow licks the ice down and the god Odin emerges.
Odin and his brothers kill Ymir. They use the remains of his body to create the world.
Odin builds a home for himself and all the other gods. It is linked to earth by the rainbow. Odin then gives life to two tree trunks, making them the first humans. Their names were Ask and Embla.
