Historical Inspiration

The design for our Lion Fibula is completely original, but it was inspired by Celtic fibulas from around 400-300 B.C.

While the lion was not a part of Celtic lore, their neighbors the Greeks did have a tale about a lion. According to Greek mythology, Heracles’s first task was to rid the Nemean plain of the Nemean Lion. Armed with his bow, arrows, and a club, Heracles entered the Nemean forest to search for the creature’s den. He was quickly stopped by the sound of a fearsome roar behind him. He turned to see the lion rushing towards him. He drew his bow and released an arrow, but it failed to harm the creature, as it’s skin couldn’t be penetrated by even the sharpest of points. Realizing this, Hearcles used his club instead to bludgeon the monster on the head. This stunned the lion just enough to allow Hercules to get his arms around its neck and strangle it to death. Once dead, Hearcles skinned the beast and threw its pelt over himself as a cloak.
