The deer: symbol of gentleness and heart energy
Those of you whose spirit animal is the deer can infuse every facet of life with grace and gentleness, even in the most challenging times. Sweet images of the doe or the fawn remind us to be kind and gentle to ourselves and others. There were two aspects of the deer in the Celtic tradition, the female and the male. The female red deer was a symbol of gracefulness and subtlety. Any child that’s seen Bambi can tell us this. Deer inspire artists to give every artwork their all.
King of the Woods
With his impressive antlers, the stag is the undisputed King of the Woods. He is connected to the magical forest’s sacredness in Celtic myths. This mammal represents pride, purity, and independence. The King of the Forest protects all of its creatures. Deer and stags manifest the art of being both gentle and determined. The stag is King because he moves quickly, is vigilant, and trusts his instincts to escape even the most complicated circumstances. Hunters prayed to the deer on an excellent hunt back in the ages of hunting and gathering. In exchange, they promised to take no more than what their tribe needed to survive.
Renowned artists that loved painting deer
Carl Friedrich Deiker and Robert Cleminson were two of the most renowned artists whose oil paintings were dominated by wild animal images. Deiker’s canvas immortalized the hunt.
