Handmade Celtic , relief carved ceramic tripple horse tile
12x12 Relief carved Celtic triple horse tile
In pre-Roman Gaul And Britain horses were used for hauling, hunting, battle and in Gaul, as food. A symbol of wealth, like sheep and cattle, they were of great significance in Celtic life. Horse bones were buried in the foundations of houses as well as in ritual pits for good luck and that association continues to this day with the belief in the horse shoes ability to bring good fortune.
