Inverurie horses brooch – a pewter brooch with embossed Inverurie horses design. Secures to a garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch.
The Celts regarded the horse as a symbol of sovereignty. When depicted as a mare, the horse also symbolises the power of the mother goddess. Known as Epona (Gaul), Rhiannon (Wales), or Macha (Ireland) she is often depicted with a basket and key symbolising nourishment and guardianship.
The horses are based on a Pictish horse engraving found on a stone in Iverurie, Scotland.
Handcrafted in Cornwall.
