pewter triscele pendant with cut out entwined detail, comes on an 18″ rhodium-plated trace chain.
The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art, and is thought to have some Roman influence, although fine examples are found in the native art of Ireland and Scotland. It is thought to represent the three realms of Celtic lore: the past, the present, and the future. One of the most popular of Ancient Celtic designs, it survived well into the Christian period, probably because it could also be considered to represent the Holy Trinity.
This piece is inspired by the New Grange Spiral. A Neolithic triscele-type carving that dates from around 3200 BCE and is reputed to be one of the most outstanding of its era.
