- Broc Badger art is apart of my ongoing Celtic Mythology Series
The Badger is unyielding in the face of danger & is noted for its tenacity & courage. In the Welsh tale of Pwyll’s courting of Rhiannon, a badger is mentioned as a guide during dreaming. In this piece I depicted the badger as a dream guide, creating a magical path in it’s wake.
They are also considered magical animals connected to the Earth —- their continuous digging is seen as symbolic of the soul returning to the Earth, which is the Source of everything.
The Celts have a number of superstitions when it comes to badgers. Like cats, badgers were seen as symbols of both good luck and bad. For example, a badger crossing an area you just passed was considered good luck. However, if one passed in front of you, it was a sign of bad luck, and even possibly death.
In Irish mythology the badger is told to be shape-shifters and kinsman to Tadg, foster father of the great king of Tara Cormac mac Airt. This Irish hero couldn’t eat badger meat consciously aware that this animal was his cousin. In one story, when Cormac is a boy, he kills some badgers and brings them home for dinner. Tadg was completely revolted by the bloody meat appearance and refused to eat it.
