Herne is the spirit of the forest.
The great horned one said to have been one of the
keepers of the Forest of Windsor in the reign of
King Richard the second.
His ghostly presence has been felt for centuries,
in this old forest. He is usually seen walking around an
old oak or most notably on his horse leading the wild hunt.
He is hand made in marble mixture in my studio and is

Herne has been linked to the Celtic God Cernunnos
and of course mentioned by Shakespeare:
“Doth all the winter-time, at still midnight,
Walk round about an oak, with great ragg’d horns;
And there he blasts the tree and takes the cattle,
And makes milch-kine yield blood and shakes a chain,
In a most hideous and dreadful manner.
You have heard of such a spirit and well you know,
The superstitious idle-headed eld,
Receiv’d and did deliver to our age,
This tale of Herne for a truth.”
William Shakespeare, “The Merry Wives of Windsor”
