Artist's Description

Featured prominently in many ancient societies, the ram has been a long held symbol of: determination, action, initiative, and leadership.

The ram is also a symbol of Aries, which is an astral symbol of ruler-ship.

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, further reinforcing ram-like attributes of leadership, authority, and other forefather-type characteristics.

The first sign of the zodiac is also symbolic of impetuous fervor, renewal, virility and fiery force.

This sign (as the ram) embraces the return of the warmth of the sun as the March equinox approaches.

Other symbolic meanings of the Ram include, Power, Force, Drive, Energy, Virility, Protection, and Fearlessness.

The ram was associated with many gods over time.

The Celtic god Cernunnos is shown with the ram. Some depictions show him seated with a ram-headed snake by his side a symbolic gesture of renewal and power.

In ancient Egypt the god Amun-Ra took on the persona of Khnum, the creator god who was always depicted with a ram’s head.

In Scandinavia, Thor was close with the ram, and was fabled to use rams to pull his chariot.

Other Gods associated with Ram Mythology and Symbolism include, Zeus, and Apollo of Greece.

Agni and Indra of India.

Hermes of Ancient Roman Mythology.

Ea and Baal from the Middle East.
