I am lover, I am father,
I am Horned God and King,
I'm the life in all of Nature,
That is reborn every Spring,
Call of stag and cry of eagle,
I am Child of Barleycorn,
And I am the Antlered Crown and Standing Stone!
I liked the song, very Celtic in expression... I have a weak spot for the Celts.... we Portuguese are their descendants as well...

Here's an antique horned god, Darkwind. His name is Pashupati, a personification of Shiva. Pashupati is also the nickname of Rudra. It's made of jade stone -- extremely hard and unscratchable. I'm going to auction it off this fall, unless someone buys it from my website once I put it up.
Just an aside, Swami Rudrananda (of NYC) was a major art dealer; he was a disciple of Swami Muktananda and Swami Nityananda
