Cernunnos, the Gallic god.


Another floral sculpture from the Montreal Mosaicultures, this sculpture depicts the ancient god called Cernunnos who was quite popular until the second century A.D. He was the god of fertility, virility, wealth and the forest as well as being the guardian of the gate to the afterworld. The serpent he holds in his hands represents immortality, infinity and other forces that are at the base of life. This Gallic god was worshipped across of all of Celtic Europe and in Gaul.
