The Gundestrup Cauldron


The Cauldron, 69 cm  in diameter and made of silver ... was found in a bog at Gundestrup, Denmark, but it is considered to have been made in the region of the Lower Danube - a region populated by Celts - whence it probably reached Denmark as plunder or by way of trade.  Its panels depict the gods; one in particular enables us to recognize Cernunnos
