Steampunk Stag Brooch

This hand-made Steampunk Stag Brooch is the perfect accessory for a Scottish Steampunk theme. With the increasing popularity of the kilt in the Steampunk community, the stag adds a finishing touch. But you don’t have to be a Scottish or wear a kilt to look stunning with this stag brooch.

Symbolic Meaning of This Steampunk Stag Brooch

The stag is a male deer and Celtic tradition sees it as the king of the forest. It is also the protector of all the forest animals.

There were two aspects of the deer for the Celts: the feminine element, called Eilid in Gaelic. This is the female red deer, symbolizing femininity, gentleness and grace. It was believed that the deer called to men from the kingdom of the fairies to free them from the trappings of the earthly world and taking them to the world of magic. Deer often turned into women in such legends to avoid being hunted.

On the other hand, there was also Damh, the masculine element. This was related to the sacred and to forests, independence, purification and pride.

There is a Cherokee legend from North America that tells how the deer procured its antlers after winning a race against a rabbit. The animals of the forest wanted to know which of the two was the fastest, but the rabbit cheated before the race and the deer won its antlers.

There are also Tibetan legends in which deer help men to solve problems.

When you wear this brooch, you are attracting the qualities of the animal itself and using these to enhance your own wisdom, leadership and spirituality.
