Copper Boar Pendant
Boars are found in Celtic art across the ages. They appear in the stone carvings of ancient Pictland, the warrior helms on the Gundestrup cauldron, and are even splayed across the shining La Tène Witham Shield. Many carnyces of the Iron Age Celts (instruments designed for organised intimidation) also intentionally bear the faces of these beasts.
It is no wonder that boars, known for their determined attack and fierce protective qualities, were affiliated with wartime strength of the ancients.
Seán Fitzgerald brings this beast into a modern context as a copper talisman to protect and imbue strength upon the wearer.
