The Boar is a personal symbol of my family, and another animal that looks like it stepped out of a card.

Mr. Sacred snuffles about looking for truffles and the secrets of the Universe.
I was not aware that many cultures or religions other than Celtic use the boar as symbolism: Chinese, Egyptian, Graeco-Roman, Hebrew, Hindu, Iranian, Japanese, Mycenaean, Scandinavian and Teutonic, Siberian, and Sumero-Semitic. The Boar is seen at times in warrior status or sacredness, the Boar of the Woods, the solitary, the brutal, the prophet, the magician, the glutton, the swallower of the Eye of God of the Day, an incarnation of Vishnu, the sun and sacrificial beast, the messenger of the Gods.
A wise old beastie, the Boar, showing up for humans regularly in history and sociology. In fact, I think Boar might hold a PhD in sociology and comparative religion.
Yes, that’s Doctor Boar to we humans.
