This beautiful silver spiral pendant is based on an ancient Celtic symbol known as the Triskele or Triskelion. The exact meaning is challenging for symbolists but my favorite version is that it represents a tale of forward motion to reach understanding. Since I am originally from Ireland I have always loved Celtic lore and mythology, this has always been one of my favorite symbols.
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 center. Movement, or motion, is believed to signify energies, in particular within this Celtic Symbol the motion of action, cycles, progress, revolution and competition.
Secondly, the connotations of: life-death-rebirth, spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future.
Finally, 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.
The pendant is approx 36mm in diameter. The chain is a silver plated cable available in a variety of lengths.
