       “The next thing, when the rime dripped, was that there came into being from it a cow called Audhumla, and four rivers of milk flowed from its teats, and it fed Ymir.”   Then spoke Gangleri: “What did the cow feed on?”   High said: “It licked the rime stones, which were salty. And the first day as it licked stones there came from the stones in the evening a man’s hair, the second day a man’s head, the third day there was a complete man there. His name was Buri.”—Snorri Sturluson, The Prose Edda (trans. Anthony Faulkes; 1987)
