Celtic Stag Bracelet Lore
In early history, the Scots and Irish saw the stag as 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 bracelet exemplifies the importance of the stag in Scottish culture. By wearing it, one pays homage to long standing Celtic tradition.
