A ceramic statue to make your decor unique.
The ram is an animal that often leads to serious misunderstandings: in general we tend to regard the goat a stupid, impulsive and talkative animal, yet nature is very smart, as well as reflective and curious. The goat though, is also a symbol of adaptability, peace and goodwill. The goat is able to survive and reproduce even in the most difficult and uncomfortable situations.The goat’s affability, strength and adaptability brought the goat to be, along with the sheep, one of the first animals to be domesticated by humans. Very agile and quick, it is able to climb trees and has very long sturdy horns which enable it to defend itself from enemies.
Greek and Roman mythology consists of many mythological creatures that relate some way to the goat. This is justified by the fact that these ancient people lived in close contact with the animal, whether in the wild countryside, or in more urbanized domesticated contexts. In Greek mythology the goat Amalthea fed the infant Zeus as his mother had hidden in Crete to protect him from his father Kronos, who was devouring their own children in fear they would take his throne. The god Pan was a god that was half-man, half-goat, protector of shepherds, the countryside, the forests and pastures. The name derives from the word ‘panic’ because when the god is angry he screams uncontrollably as do goats.
A faun, a Roman god, that has the feet, legs and horns of a goat and the upper body and face of a man is the divinity of nature, the countryside and woods. In Norse culture, Thor, the god of thunder, was traveled in a chariot drawn by two goats. In the Eastern world, and especially India, the goat is considered the protector of life, fertility and fecundity, and its horns are the link to the Gods. The meaning of the goat in dreams evokes elements such as the abundance and enjoyment of material things, the world wild and bucolic, being capricious and stubborn.
The negative meaning of the goat derives Christian ideology, which associated the animal to Satan, considering it a symbol of uncontrolled sexual relations and incestuous. The goat is finally the symbol of the Capricorn, which is the smallest constellation of the Zodiac. A strange looking creature, with the head and front legs of a goat and the tail of a fish, the Capricorn constellation is intended as a heavenly gift to an animal so attached to his land. Ahura ceramic proposes this work because we want to give value to those who still feel a strong connection with nature, meadows, fields.
Being wild little means to breathe deeply, forgetting the problems of our excessively urbanized life. The goat in Ahura ceramic is part of the original Country collection which represents the animal world by proposing works made with natural colors that celebrate the magic of nature. Made with patented material ‘Keramnext’, the optimal blend that combines the benefits of ceramics and the porcelain, the ceramic animal is an artistic image that has been completely designed and decorated by hand by experts and skilled craftsmen of Ahura. The goat is therefore a work of great interest in pottery and porcelain: the ceramic animal adapts to every need of furniture and every large collection to stand out.
