Inspiration brought to my studio from the Entrance stone at Brú na Boinne (Newgrange).
From as far back as 3200 BC spirals are found carved into stone on the island of Ireland. My ancestors combined they’re knowledge of sacred geometry and stellar observation to create Megalithic structures which have stood on the landscape throughout the ages.

Derived from the Greek word "Triskeles" meaning "three legs", the Triskele or Triple Spiral is a complex ancient pre-Celtic symbol. Often referred to by many as a Triskelion, its earliest creation dates back to the Neolithic era, as it can be seen at the entrance of Newgrange, Ireland.

However, the Triskele gained popularity in its use within the Celtic culture from 500BC onwards. This archaic symbol is one of the most convoluted to decipher as symbolists believe it is reflective of many areas of culture from the time. Firstly, the triskele can be thought to represent motion as all three arms are positioned to make it appear as if it is moving outwards from its centre. Movement, or motion, is believed to signify energies, in particular within this Celtic Symbol the motion of action, cycles, progress, revolution and completion. Secondly, and the more challenging area for symbolists, is the exact symbolic significance of the three arms of the triskele.

This can differ dependent on the era, culture, mythology and history, which is why there are so many variations as to what these three extensions in the triple spiral symbol mean. Some of these connotations include: life-death-rebirth, spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future, power-intellect-love and creation-preservation-destruction to name but a few. It’s thought that through the combination of these two areas we gain one meaning of the Celtic triskele.
It is believed to represent a tale of forward motion to reach understanding. However, this is thought not to be the only meaning, as it is also believed to represent three Celtic worlds; the spiritual world, the present world and the celestial world. Like the ancient Trinity knot, the number 3 holds a special symbolism within the triskele.
