Celtic boar figurine after a find from Bibracte.

Here you can buy a Celtic boar as a pendant, made after a wild boar figurine from the Celtic oppidum of Bibracte.

The Celts revered the wild boar, especially the boar, for its courage and fighting power and created small figurines with representations of boars in antiquity, of which more than 100 different finds are known to date.

The historical model for this Celtic boar pendant is a find from the La Tène culture. The figurine was found in the oppidum of Bibracte, which was the capital of the Gaulish tribe of Haedu from the end of the second century to the end of the first century BC and the site of the Battle of Bibracte. Here, in 58 BC, Caesar and his Roman legions defeated the Celtic army under Vercingetorix.

The Celtic boar pendant is fully sculpted and measures 3 x 2 x 0.6 cm.

A black leather strap is included with the Celtic boar pendant.

As an alternative to the pendant, the boar figurine can also be used as a devotional object on an altar, as it stands on its own.

You can buy this medieval pendant in high-quality bronze or real silver-plated.
Alternatively, also available in 925 sterling silver (Please note the delivery time).
Alloy...



The role of the boar as a respect demanding hunting animal of impressive bravery in battle is particularly evident from Celtic statuettes, but also from stamped depictions on Celtic sword blades and helmets with raised boar ornamentation on the calotte.

Representations of wild boars are among the most common bronze figures of the Celts, of which more than one hundred examples have survived. The representations are varied and show a typological development from the wild, aggressive boar to the cosy domestic pig. For the most part, the Celtic boar figurines are scattered finds from individual settlement layers, generally dating between the 3rd and 1st centuries BC.

The origins of Celtic figural representations of wild boars must be considered in the context of Etruscan art. At the end of the 5th century BC, the so-called Bibracte-Luncani type emerged here, in which the Celtic boar figures are characterized by an aggressive posture and a high dorsal ridge.
