If a festival hat was made for me, the animal that I would choose and of its qualities I would be the Ram. Not because it is associated with Ryerson's mascot, Woot Woot! but because the animal symbolises of: Power, Force, Drive, Energy, Virility, Protection, Fearlessness. A look into mythology will reveal the ram was associated with many gods over time. In ancient Egypt the god Amun-Ra took on the persona of Khnum, the creator god who was always depicted with a ram's head. Another interesting fact, in Scandinavia, Thor was close with the ram, and was fabled to use rams to pull his chariot.
