Cernunnos

Cernunnos is an ancient Celtic god. As he is here, he is often depicted with horns from an animal on one horn and snake on the other.

In some renderings, he wears a Torque, a metal necklace in the form of hoops. In Celtic mythology, Cernunnos was the patron of fertility, nature and animals as well as the god of magic and wisdom. The Celts associated him with spirituality, enlightenment and self-development. Today he is interpreted as a symbol of masculinity and strength.
