365 Doodles - Day 120

This is Radigast; a Baltic war God easily spotted by the bull’s head on his chest … and the swan perched on his head. Radigast may have been an aspect of the top god Svandovit who was often depicted as having four necks and four faces. His high priests were required to hold their breaths when cleaning his temple, but that may have been a good thing as he stabled his horse in there. Radigast was known as the god of thought and of good advice. However, would you take advice from a god who hasn’t thought about how silly he’d look with a swan on his head?

Another of my 'Odd Gods' series.
