What a successful with a great depth Deer painting, I’m very thrilled with the outcome. Managed to combine some of the rich deep colours that very trendy and keep my detailed 3D style in this beautiful animal that I’ve put together from about four different photos to create my own exclusive image, I’ve enjoyed creating a great life like presence in the room of a stunning Stag😃🦌 and wasn’t shy talking to him whilst painting ☺️
There is something interesting I’ve come across in Celtic Methodology and Celtic religion the stag was a symbol for the god Cernunnos, "The Horned One". Cernunnos was often portrayed with antlers himself, and was a god of the forest and wild animals. He was also seen as a god of 'Plenty', and the large Celtic 'Cauldrons of Plenty' often featured deer motifs amongst their ornate decoration. The magnificent Gundestrup Cauldron, for example, shows an antlered man alongside a deer and other wildlife. Though this is often regarded as a representation of Cernunnos, his pose in a half lotus position suggests he could also be a Celtic shaman.
Interesting facts 🤔😉
