The Celtic Serpent
Since the serpent is a common motif throughout human history, it’s no surprise that the serpent has its place in Scottish culture. From the Pre-Columbian cultures in the Americas, Middle Eastern religions such as Christianity, creation stories originating on the African continent, to various Asian religions and cultures, such as Hinduism, this animal takes part in many sacred stories across the board. The Celts are no exception. Scholars associate the serpent with the Celtic god Cernunnos. The serpent faces included on this buckle have horns, like the serpent held by Cernunnos in a 4th Century BC stone carving.
