Symbolism of the Boar
Wild boars are fearsome and dangerous animals. Admired by Celtic and Saxon warriors for their strength, ferocity and ctheage, the image of the boar frequently adorned the shields and armor, helmets and other war gear.
The boar was also prized for its meat, and was the favorite game animal of the Celts. Boar meat was a symbol of hospitality. Any function of importance would include a feast with boar meat. Serving boar meat not only demonstrated the honored position of a guest; it proved the skill and hunting prowess of the host.
