Illustration Friday-- Primitive



I've been reading a book on the Ancient Celts this week, and so have taken my subject choice from the stories. This is an image of Cernunnos, Celtic god of the forest and abundance. I've based this on a cave drawing of a human-stag figure from 13,000 BC. It predates stories of Cernunnos, but fits nicely from a symbolic angle.

With the forest greening around us, and the fruit trees giving every indication of making this year abundant-- he seemed like the logical choice!
