A picture of Cernunnos from the Pilier des nautes, Paris, France.

Cernunnos (also spelt as Cernenus[1] and Cern) is a Pagan Celtic God from the ancient Celtic lands of western Europe.

Cernunnos is linked with male animals with horns, especially stags (a type of animal). Because of this, he is linked with fertility.[2] Cernunnos is also seen as God of the Underworld.

Everything that we know about Cernunnos comes from two pictures; one from France, and one from Germany.[3]
