Shaman of Trois Freres



In the Spirit Realm, he mediates between humans and animals.  The Shaman of Trois Freres is carved into the ceiling chamber of a Paleolithic hunter’s initiation cave. An image of sympathetic magic, he embodies parts of many different animals, plus the bearded face of an old man and the legs of a dancing shaman.

This ancient Sorcerer served as mediator between humans and their venerated animal kin, and is a prototype for Kernunnos, Forest God of the later Celts.

[Ariege, France, c. 13,000 BCE]
