This majestic artwork of staghorns inspires the stories and myths associated with them. Hurne the hunter is a figure of British mythology who appears to be stag headed, he appears in many stories and is usually associated with hunting and being sacrificed. This is emblematic of the hunter/prey duality and is similar to the role of sacrificed Gods.
There many are many accounts of people and Gods having horns. Horns represent the unstoppable primal power of nature. They are synonymous with strength throughout human history. The antlered god Cernunnos, whose cult is most widely attested, is usually represented with the horns of a ram or a deer, squatting on the ground, and his posture indeed recalls that of the Buddha.
