Sun God Belenos Wall Plaque by Pacific Giftware Home Decor

Among the Gauls and certain British Celts, the name of the God of Solar Fire and purification was Belenos. Often incorrectly labeled as a "Gorgon's head" or a "male medusa", this mask comes to us as a bas-relief from the Roman Baths at Aqua Sulis in Bath, England.

The flaming solar rays emanate from his hair and beard. He is also portrayed as having wings and garlanded with serpents. He held many of the attributes given to Classical Sun gods such as Helios and Apollo. The occupying Romans who built the baths where this relief is found referred to this deity as the Celtic Apollo. This impressive image was the central figure of the pediment of the Temple of Sulis, a Goddess like Brigid, with strong solar connections. Caesar described the Gaulish Apollo as a therapeutic deity, driving away disease.

The word bel means "bright" or "brilliant" and is found in various place names associated with his cult. The Celtic ceremony of Beltane, also known popularly as May Day, marked the beginning of the Celtic summer. Ceremonies of regeneration, purification with spring water and the ritual lighting of the Bale-Fire are still connected to this day with Beltane.

This Sun Gold Belenos plaque is 15 inches in diameter.
