Anonymous asked you:Your blog is brilliant! what does the deer in Will’s dreams mean?
Oh, if only it were just in Will’s dreams…
(TW: gore, violence, mutilation, cannibalism. Not to be blasé; but, y’know, it’s Hannibal. And spoilers up to 1.11, “Roti”.)
I’m going to call it the “Ravenstag”, because fans gave it that name in the early weeks of the show and now Bryan Fuller also calls it that so, arguably, it’s canon!
This is a story of Will Graham’s uniquely strange mind and Hannibal’s fascination with it.
The actual sculpture is Elk by Pierre-Jules Mêne (1810-1879), a French sculptor and animalière. In Will’s dreams/hallucinations, he often sees an elk (aka the ravenstag) which symbolizes the state of his own mind. The stag also shares similar qualities to the Wendigo, a cannibalistic Algonquian mythological spirit.
