Description

This is Cernunnos, the Celtic "Horned God" of nature and fertility. He is born at the winter solstice, marries the goddess at Beltane, and dies at the summer solstice to be reborn next winter.

I've always been fond of the look of these early winter evenings and all the mythologies that center around the winter solstice. Hope you enjoy as well, and happy winter!

Beautifully done, though I have trouble picturing Cernunnos as too young for his first beard.
