Deer and in particular stags are found in folktales from around the world and are considered to be spiritual creatures. Stag's antlers have long been associated with life and death. The eternal cycles and motions of all mortal creatures, and their transcendence through regeneration. Throughout the many folk histories of the stag we can trace deep connections to the Tree of Life itself, reflected in the spreading shape of the antlers. The antlers themselves also represent rebirth to us in folklore because of their shedding and regrowth. Interestingly when antlers are shed they provide a necessary source of minerals for smaller animals, continuing to support life even when they are to our eyes dead. In fairytales and ancient stories, bone often represents the most enduring, soul deep part of us, where our most incorruptible natures reside.
