Yule Goat

12x18 -Oil On Board

In Northern Europe, the holiday of Yule is observed in place of the Christmas season. Pagan in origin, the holiday is centred around family and sharing what you have with others during the upcoming winter season.  The goat is seen as a symbol of the holiday, decorating peoples homes and envoking the god Thor with his goat-drawn chariot.
