This art doll is enhanced with the following meaningful and symbolic features:
DOG: In Celtic symbolism, dogs are a representation of heroism. They embody heart-pounding attributes such as: Courage, Persistence, Virility. This, in large part is due to a Celtic dog’s role in hunting. Dogs were even trained by the ancient Celts to assist in battle.
