Celtic symbol meaning collar torques


Symbols Celtic torques

One of the most remarkable figures depicted on the Gundestrup cauldron is that of Cernunnos, the antlered god, who, around the neck, wears a collar open, the torques, and in the hand is holding another.

Other Celtic deities are depicted with this ornament: it was certainly a symbol of dignity and high rank (important people were buried with a torques).

Archaeological excavations have unearthed many treasures consist of such necklaces and coins, probably buried as an offering to the gods.
