This is a contemporary sculpture based on the 7th Century Pictish “Boar Stone” that was found at Dores, Invernesshire. This piece has the boar carved in relief as opposed to the incised outline of the original Pictish art.
It is believed that when an animal was carved into stone that it was to capture and embody the spirit and virtues in order that they be passed to the possessor of the carving.
To the Picts the boar embodied Strength, Courage, Fertility and Hospitality.
As the boar was a prized game animal, it was often served to guests as a symbol of hospitality and proved the hunting prowess of the host.
This sculpture is closely based on the original incised stone but using artistic licence I have depicted the boar in relief. The colours are inspired by the cloth printing work of Marianna Lines of Stoneline Designs and are used with her blessing.
This sculpture represents the same and serves as a connection to these powers and virtues, bringing you the spirit of the boar
