Horses Of Inverurie Brooch
A pewter brooch with embossed Inverurie horses design. Secures to a garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch.
Handcrafted in Cornwall
The Celts regarded the horse as a symbol of sovereignty. When depicted as a mare, the horse also symbolises the power of the mother goddess. Known as Epona (Gaul), Rhiannon (Wales), or Macha (Ireland). She is often depicted with a basket and key symbolising nourishment and guardianship.
The horses are based on a Pictish horse engraving found on a stone in Iverurie, Scotland.

WILDSTREAM TV IS A COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY
WildstreamTV builds networks of ultrahigh definition cameras that record wildlife continuously every hour and every day throughout the seasons. Each setup is the result of many years of fieldcraft to produce immersive and seldom seen behaviours of our iconic British Wildlife. This includes often never seen creatures such as Kingfishers, Otters and Barn Owls. They then install 4K screens with ‘slow tv’ footage to health and community settings where access to wildlife or nature is difficult.
