Celtic Ox – one of a kind
Handmade solid bronze pendant
Inspired on Celtic (Gallic) finds from France.
In the world of symbolism, mythology and folklore the meaning of the Ox is tied to that of the Bull – both representing the Male aspect, fertility, leadership roles at home or in public, renewal and power.
They were some of the first creatures humankind domesticated to help with agrarian chores. Beyond having a strong back, Ox could be a food source giving it the additional symbolism as a provider.
The Ox has a fiery disposition, which makes the it a strong role model, but sometimes a little too bull-headed – literally. Some cultures, however, tie the Bull to moon worship because of this spirit animal guide’s crescent-shaped horns. This gives Ox the ability to bridge between two worlds – that of sun and moon, and that of intuition and reason. Nonetheless, the Ox has a very stubborn, fierce side that requires taming and guidance.
In the ancient world, Ox offerings were not uncommon. People like the Druids believed that this creature’s vital essence gave fertility to the earth.
