“Why would I want a giant silhouette of a deer’s head on my wall,” you ask? Well, besides being a bougie home decor trend, deer, or the stag, has thousands of years of cultural significance spanning almost every society around the world. In European heraldry, the stag head frequently appears on coats of arms representing strength. In traditional, northeastern areas of Japan, deer are considered messengers to the gods. In Greek mythology the deer is seen alongside Artemis, the virginal huntress. Stag depictions were present in Siberian burial tombs from the 4th and 3rd centuries BCE. In the poetry from the Highlands of Scotland, the deer is used as a metaphor for heroic warriors. And in the homes of hunters for hundreds of years, a mounted deer head represents a prized possession and symbol of a strong, successful hunter.
