Celtic Rampant Lion Ceramic Pendant

I created this Celtic Rampant Lion piece from earthenware clay. It's been glazed with a purple colored glaze to have the appearance of an ancient relic. The bead is a matte glass crow bead.

What is the significance of the Rampant Lion symbol?

According to Wikipedia, the lion is a common charge in heraldry. It traditionally symbolizes bravery, valour, strength, and royalty, since traditionally, it is regarded as the king of beasts.
