The female deer, called Eilid (Ay-lee) in the Gaelic
language, symbolizes femininity, subtlety and
gracefulness. It was believed that the deer were called to
men from the fairy kingdom so as to liberate them from
traps of the earthly world and take them to a magical
world. In such legends, deer would often change into
women to avoid being killed or hunted.
