The bull holds a significant place in Irish mythology. It is often associated with strength, fierceness, and virility. The bull was sometimes sacrificed to appease the gods, and in Ireland and Scotland, bulls were used in ceremonies to predict the future and even choose a new king.
One of the most prominent figures in Irish mythology is the ‘Tarvos Trigaranus’, which means ‘Bull with three cranes’. This figure is often depicted as a tree with spreading branches, in front of which stands a bull, with two of the birds perched on its back, and the third on its head. This imagery is believed to represent a mythology about regeneration, where a bull was killed by a hunter, but brought back to life by the cranes.
Another famous tale from Irish mythology is the ‘Táin Bó Cuailgne’, or the ‘Cattle Raid of Cooley’. In this epic, two great bulls, Donn Cúailnge, the brown bull of Cooley, and Finnbhennach, the white bull of Connacht, were once herdsmen named Friuch and Rucht respectively. Their rivalry continued even after they were transformed into animals who retained their capacity for human reasoning and language.
Our Celtic Pictish Bull engraved and painted slate coaster is a tribute to these rich mythologies and the significant role of the bull in Celtic Irish culture. Each coaster is meticulously crafted to capture the essence of these tales, making it a unique Celtic gift that carries a piece of Irish history.
