Showroom Art Gallery Exhibition in Pretoria
The first painting: “Behold”, is part of the range of mysterious looking portraits of whimsical girls. This painting of a girl with Stag horns or Antlers, captures a still reserved feeling and represents a bit of the many symbolisms surrounding Deer and Antlers. These paintings will be for sale at an art exhibition at the Showroom Art Gallery in Pretoria, from the 16th of November to the 15th of December 2016.
A Look at the Symbolic Meaning of the Deer
When we encounter the deer in the wild, our breath catches – we are transfixed by their graceful features and delicate movements. The tender beauty of these beasts has not gone unnoticed by our ancestors.
The deer is linked to the arts, specifically poetry and music in ancient Celtic animal lore due to its graceful form. The Celts also believed that deer were associated with the fairie realm, and would lead troops of fairies – hundreds of them trailing behind them as the stag cut a path through the forest.
Both Celts and Native Americans observed the deer to be savvy when it came to finding the best herbs. These earth-bound peoples would follow the deer to prime herb patches – many of which proved to be highly beneficial in their medicinal purposes.
