WHATS IN A NAME?
CERNUNNOS: CELTIC GOD OF THE FOREST
Cernunnos is the conventional name given in Celtic studies to depictions of the "horned god" of Celtic polytheism, god of nature, life or fertility and vegetation. Because of his frequent association with creatures, scholars often describe Cernunnos as the "Lord of the Animals" or the "Lord of Wild Things" - a "peaceful god of nature and fruitfulness". The Horned God reflects the seasons of the year in an annual cycle of life, death and rebirth.
