According to the Ancient Sami Peoples of Northern Europe (Sweden, Norway, Finland and portions of Eastern Russia), ''Horagalles'' was an early form of ''Thunder God'', which pre-dated The Norse ''Thor''. He was personified as a tall wooden Pole (tree), which had a hammer instead of limbs. Spikes (nails) were often portrayed in His personification. Ancients made Icons of Horagalles in very much the same way. By ''banging'' of such Icons, it was thought that Horagalles would lessen violent Thunder and Rain Storms.
