Celtic Dragon Hydra Steel Finish Sporran Flap
Dragons were as much a part of the ancient world as the mountains and trees that surrounded the rustic people who embroidered upon their legendary existence. Not merely content to lurk in bodies of water or fly above the firmament, Dragons were credited with sculpting the very earth itself by the passage of their enormous bodies. Celebrated in a myriad of cultures in many different ways, Dragons took on a fantastic array of physical forms.
Our Celtic Dragon Hydra Interchangeable Flap captures the complexity and sinuous, serpentine quality of ancient monsters, and recalls archaic Greek legends of the Lernaean Hydra. The four Dragon heads are bound in a knotted circle, which subtly references the Norse tradition of Jörmungandr, and its even more ancient predecessor, the Ouroboros.
