Deer and Stags

stag head best Lascaux

ORIGINAL ART: MEGALOCEROS GIGANTEA, STAG, LASCAUX CAVES, FRANCE – 24,000 B.C.E.

The deer on Laura Rose’s hand-thrown pots on this page are drawn from ancient caves of Europe. Each one give us a window into the hearts and minds of the most ancient ancestors that we can access through any language. Their deep love of these animals, their amazing sensitivity to form and to character and their essential bond to expression through art connects us through time to some of the best of human nature.

Deer are found in many of the European caves and are usually shown as if they were in motion, about to leap off of the wall. Alternatively, as in the original example above, they are depicted in great elegance. They were probably part of spiritual practice and ritual, perhaps as gods or mythic heroes, and newest thought connects them with the cycles of the moon and stars, possibly even the beginnings of astrology.
