Large Celtic Knot Spiral Triskele Handmade Pewter Pendant #1
Spirals are second only to knotwork as the symbols most associated with Celtic art. Perhaps the true secret of Celtic spirals lies in their simplicity and beauty. They are universal symbols of the spiritual balance between inner and outer consciousness. Spirals are associated with the power of the Sun and harmony with the Earth. They assuredly have mystical powers.
The Triskele or Triskelion is a three-pronged spiral representing the Celtic Triple goddess of the 3 ages of womanhood; Maiden, Mother, Crone. Whatever the Trisceles meaning, it is interesting that the motif is based around the number 3 - a highly sacred number in many ancient cultures. The spiral of life is found on many ancient Irish stone carvings dating back to 2500 BC. Most scholars believe it represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Others say this deeply mystical symbol represents the male, female, and child, on the path of life. The triple spiral represents the eternal truth that the meaning of life is to find harmony between the three dimensions of our existence.
