Symbolic dog jewellery

Dog is a symbolic animal. Dogs appear frequently in the myth and folklore of Celtic lands: as the animal form of a divinity, usually a goddess; as a companion to heroes, usually male; and as spirit- beings associated with the Otherworld. The connection of dogs with religion may be very ancient in Celtic lands, because remains of their bones, found in early sites, appear to indicate they were killed sacrificially. The disgust that even contemporary people in the ancient Celtic lands feel toward eating dog meat, not shared by people of many lands, may be a long-lasting memory of a taboo against consuming the flesh of a sacrificial victim.

It is probably the owls’ almost human “face” that makes them so popular with many people. Today representations of owls, whether it is a painting, a sculpture, or a piece of jewellery are popular with collectors. However, owls are probably hated and feared in some cultures as much as they are liked and revered in others.

The designs formed by birds in flight were the basis of a now-lost system of divination.
