Fred the Druid face pot produced by Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 2001. A druid was a member of the high-ranking priestly class in ancient Celtic cultures. Druids were religious leaders as well as legal authorities, adjudicators, lore keepers, medical professionals and political advisors. Druids left no written accounts. While they were reported to have been literate, they are believed to have been prevented by doctrine from recording their knowledge in written form. Their beliefs and practices are attested in some detail by their contemporaries from other cultures, such as the Romans and the Greeks. Fred the Druid was available only to charter members of the face pot collecting guild. Familiar with the stars and the ways of nature, Fred is wishing everyone a "Happy Solstice".
