This medallion is adorned with an original Boar design combining Celtic and Pictish style elements.
The Boar was among the most widely honored totemic animals among the Celtic tribes (as it has been revered in many cultures worldwide). Boars appear on shields, helmets, carved stones, coins, jewelry, and thousands of other artifacts throughout the Bronze and Iron Age. The Boar was a popular totemic animal for warriors and for these warrior societies, because of its characteristics of aggression, strength, resilience, and indomitability. The Boar was also a staple protein source for the Celts and (along with its female counterpart, the Sow) was revered for fertility, nourishment, and fecundity.
You can wear or display this lively creature to sustain yourself with the strength, fertility and ferocity of the Boar, and to honor these ancient traditions.
Talisman is etched in 18-gauge copper, 1.5″ in diameter. Comes strung on a simple natural leather cord.
Our copper talismans are hand etched in small runs with careful attention. Talismans are individually hand-detailed, so each pendant is slightly different and unique. The artist, Morpheus, personally consecrates all the talismans on her altar.
