Wild stags and white stags or harts are renowned in myth and legend. The Celts believed the appearance of the white stag meant the Otherworld was to hand. The White Hart’s appearance in Arthurian legend inspired quests and adventure. Considered to be impossible to catch it came to symbolise the unattainable and deep pursuit of knowledge. In modern storytelling the hunt for the wild stag precipitated the exit from Narnia in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. And Harry Potter had a glowing white stag as his ‘petronus’ – a protective spirit. Fictional or reality this is an elegant animal and a great design motif!
