La Tene Scabbard and Ancient Battle of Deorham Park

La Tene Scabbard and Ancient Battle of Deorham Park

Jo grew up around Bristol in England and is extremely interested in its Celtic and Pre roman past. The main pattern down the outer arm is copied from a Celtic sword scabbard regional to the south West of England and ornamented in the La Tene style. The inner forearm depicts a Celtic belief around life, death and rebirth. This was thought to be similar to the Germanic belief of Valhall. The scene also depicts a historical battle between the Celts and Saxons fought at Deorham Park. On the back the forearm is Cernunnos, the god of the wild hunt, with power over nature and man.
