Artist's Description

I am a boar: ruthless and red
Song of Amergin

“eofor sceal on holte,
toðmægenes trum.”
The boar shall live in the thicket, strong of tusk
~ Gnomic verses
The boar represents warfare, strength and protection, and was a common motif in both Hiberno and Saxon culture, in art and literature – featuring in epic poems such as Beowulf. Sacred to the god Frey, the boar crest was often fashioned on helms and it appears on the shoulder pieces from the Sutton Hoo ship burial. The white boar was the heraldic animal of King Richard III.
