The boar has played a prominent role in Celtic and Germanic culture since antiquity. This image was inspired by a well known Pictish carving stone dating to the 7th century. The Orkney Islands in Scotland take their name from Celtic word for boar. The boar was also used by the Vikings with the mythological Gullinbursti being the war pig of Norse god Freyr.
