The pre-celtic Triskele or Triskelion symbol was used in European Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age cultures.
It is seen in the famous megalithic tomb of Newgrange, built around 3200 BCE, as well as in early Greek, Sicilian and Maltese art.
As an ancient Celtic symbol, the triple spiral related to the sun, afterlife and reincarnation. The "tomb" at Newgrange, where it is supposed by some to be a symbol of pregnancy -- the sun describes a spiral in its movements every three months, a triple spiral represents nine months -- an idea reinforced by its womb like nature. The symbol also suggests reincarnation as it is drawn in one continuous line, suggesting a continuous movement of time.
Triskeles are one of the most common elements of Celtic art. They are found in a variety of styles in both ancient and modern Celtic art, especially in relation to depictions of the Mother Goddess. Triskeles also evoke the Celtic concept of the domains of the material existence: earth, water, and sky and their interrelations.
K Robins. I was born and raised in Virginia and reside there in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. An epiphany of sorts occurred around 1980 and I began to see life in a new way. While my young children played nicely upstairs I would steal away to my basement shop where I normally made furniture, cooking utensils and an assortment of other wooden things. Now to my amazement, out of the wood and sawdust, a series of female figurines was erupting. The original cherry, boxwood, rosewood and ebony symbols and figures have evolved into a line of silver pendants that includes nearly 100 designs.
Many of the jewelry designs come from my fascination with the language of symbols and how the art of different cultures and times echoes around the world.All cultures surround themselves with symbols of some sort and naturally pass them reverently from generation to generation. These symbols lift up and guide us through life's interwoven cycles of birth, life, death and rebirth.
