Cernunnos is the Celtic Lord of wildlife and guardian of the deepest secrets of the forests. He bears also the names of Herne or Pan, and is often represented wearing deer antlers or depicted as a stag. He appeals within us to our primal power, and he generates growth and fertility for all aspects in our life.

Greeting Card representing an original acrylic painting of the Celtic God Cernunnos by Elena Danaan
Cernunnos protects all living creatures and assists us in our actions to preserve nature. He holds here a Torque towards the moon, visually drawing two circles symbolising the union of Feminine and Masculine. In his left hand he holds at bay and in balance, the sexual energy of nature, depicted by a snake with ram horns. Sika-Deer and Oak leaves crown his head, and in his run through the forest, behind him, a Blackthorn unfolds its magical doorway to the darkest secrets of the night.
