Celtic Boar Bracelet Lore
The Campbell clan crest features a boar’s head.
Moccus is a Celtic swine god that was equated to Mercury. The Celtic Lingones tribe, in particular, worshiped this boar god. The boar as a divine symbol became a common sight on standards, coins, altars, and bronze images. Groups of Druids, Wiccan and Celtic polytheists continue to worship the boar god Moccus today.
The pig later became a divine vehicle for a goddess in Britain. This goddess of, perhaps, fertility sits on a boar in a bronze image in altars. This boar may be the “Caledonian monster” from a poem by Claudian.
Magic pigs were also considered the food of the gods. Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of pigs in several Celtic graves in Britain. These pigs might have been sacrifices for the ghost of the person buried with it, or for the god of the underworld.
The boar is not only a sacred animal, but a respected animal for its bravery. Let this Celtic Boar Bracelet be a reminder of your Celtic heritage.
