Overview

This stoneware, raised-relief horn celebrates the greatest of the Irish myth heroes, CuChulainn, whose larger-than-life exploits were recorded in the 12th Century Book of the Dun Cow. At the age of six, Cu Chalainn, then called Setanta, killed a fierce watchdog belonging to Cullan the Smith with his bare hands, then offered himself as a replacement. Seeing this, the chieftain Conall christened him Cu Chulainn, The Hound of Culann. In his final battle, mortally wounded, he lashed himself to a pillar to remain upright & continue fighting. So feared was he that his enemy Lugaid dared approach his body only after a crow had settled on him. This explains the horns' motif: on both sides of the horn, in relief is Cu Chulainn on horseback with dog, hunting a stag in the woods. The branches & roots of the trees transform into an elaborate knotwork pattern. The mouth of the horn features a faithful dog with sword. The horn tip is a rapture's head.

The Horn of Cu Chulainn was sculpted by Bob Maurus. A strap for carrying and/or hanging is included. This item features a resin cast antler stand, also sculpted by Bob Maurus, upon which the horn rests. Ships Separately, No Express Shipping available on this item. 
  • Dimensions: 13-3/4"
