The wild boar symbolises courage and ferocity in many cultures and the hunting of these shy yet fearsome creatures feature in many tales and folklore. Celtic and Arthurian mythology is particularly rich with stories of wild hunts including the Mabinogion and even Hercules was tasked the subduing of the Erymanthian Boar as one of his twelve labours. Boars are depicted as guardians of the forest and the Norse goddess Freya rode a boar into battle.
