Term: Wicker Man

DEFINITION:

According to the Roman writers Tacitus and Julius Caesar, Druids performed human scarifies by placing people in giant wicker cages formed in human shape and then set them afire, allowing the victims to roast slowly as a sacrifice to the Gods. The idea became well know due to a 1973 movie by Robin Hardy which remain both popular and controversial among Neopagans. The movie was remade in 2006 by Neil LaBute and is generally disliked by Neopagans and film critics.
