According to classical writers, the Celts wore torcs into battle.

thought that they marked a person of high status, such as a warrior or chieftain.

In Celtic lore, the serpent is the image of light, life and divine wisdom.
Coming from deep within the earth, it was believed to hold secrets and be the
guardian of hidden riches, metals, medical cures and esoteric knowledge.
