Pigtail:


Like beards, Hair plaited into pigtails is proof of and a channel for virility and the life force. In addition to this symbol, pigtails stand for a probable link between this world and the Beyond, the home of the dead; and for the intimate entwining of relationships, the mingling of currents and influences and the interdependence of individuals upon one another. Gaulish grave-stones from various places in France depict individuals with a single large pigtail hanging down one side of the face, while on some small copper coins there is a squatting figure holding a pigtail in each hand. In Ireland - and among the Germans, too - a shaven head was a mark of inferior social status or of humiliation. The young hero Cuchulainn ‘had fifty plaits of golden hair from one ear to the other, like dazzling golden rays shining from the face of the Sun’ (Ogam - tradition celtique 10: pp. 201-2; 11: p.335).

The pigtail was a symbol of the Maya Sun-god and used by its earthly representatives (Raphael Girard, Le Popol-Vuh, histoire culturelle des Maya-Quiche, p.83).
