Celtic Symbol of BOAR


Celtic Symbol of BOAR

The wild boar is ubiquitous in the iconography and mythology of Celtic, with the bristles bristling on the back, is engraved on coins, trumpets, helmets, caps, from England to Hungary and Romania.

His ferocity made him a natural icon war, but its symbolic value was much larger: the main prey animal of the Celtic people enjoyed a privileged relationship with the gods of the hunt, as Ardwinna, huntress goddess of the Ardennes, for example, where it is shown with a dagger in his hand and a wild boar on the side.

Its delicious meat naturally associated the holiday banquets.
