An Iconic Figure

Diminished Significance

These preceding historic tales, folklores, and myths establish the wild boar as an iconic figure throughout many diverse cultures. Unfortunately their valuation in modern societies have either diminished significantly or dissappeared all together. As globalization has expanded and engulfed spiritual necessities, most cultures no longer connect spiritually with their surroundings. Social "progression" has led to a disconnect with most of our historical ties. Once materialism and superficial enlightenment were prioritized, historical values and the cultural significance behind stories were lost. This new focus is especially prevalent in advanced westernized cultures that no longer grasp any type of spiritual connections with wildlife, animals, and the environment.

I hope you've enjoyed this journey through history with the wild boar. Have a great day!
