Spring conquers winter in its symbolism.

Siegfried is a descendent of the Volsungs, reared in the wild by a foster parent, but destined to become a pure and great hero, who could break the curse of the dwarf-gold. He is told of the gold and encouraged to take it from the dragon (Fafnir) who guards the horde. Siegfried is without fear and confronts and slays Fafnir. The battle leaves Seigfried covered in dragon's blood, which he tastes and becomes invulnerable and able to understand the voices of the birds. Siegfried's future is filled with adventure, peril and calamity.
