Cruet Set: Feeding the Gods

celtic spoon heads

I’ve stumbled upon something rather interesting in my research, coming across these items. I first came across these ‘spoons’ in “Celtic Art” by Ian Stead. being patterned as they were while being useless as functional spoons, believed them to have some ritual function:

Often found in pairs, one of which is pierced and the other marked with a cross.. Could they have been used for feeding the gods?

It got me thinking. Rather than just looking into Celtic patterns, perhaps creating a Cruet set for the gods is in order. There’s always been something that’s interested me in the supernatural and beliefs of other cultures and times – including any connection to the ‘Otherworld.’
