The Stag in Celtic Culture
In early history, the Scots and Irish knew the stag to be a powerfully strong animal. In order to become a leader, one had to hunt and kill a stag using only a knife made from a stag’s horn. Candidates completed this rite in order to gain the wisdom and strength necessary to lead.
Celts have been depicting the stag on their artifacts since as early as the 4th Century BCE. To this day, traditional Scottish dancers often imitate stags by stretching out their arms over their heads like antlers, and forming horns with their fingers. This buckle exemplifies the continuing importance of the stag in Scottish culture. By wearing it, one taps into this long held Celtic tradition.
