This Triscele Newgrange Pendant is very special. This circle pendant is in sterling silver with a ‘half-moon’ oxidised intertwining knot-work to the side. This represents no beginning and no ending.
The Triscele is a complex ancient Celtic symbol, consisting of three interlocked spirals. These spirals represent motion. This is because all three arms are positioned to make it appear as if it is moving. They also represent a tale of forward motion to reach understanding.
The Triscele features in both ancient and modern Celtic art. It evokes the Celtic interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky. The symbol is also thought to portray the three Celtic worlds. This is the spiritual world, the present world and the celestial world.
The Triscele is widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols in existence. The earliest creation dates back to the Neolithic era, as it can be seen at the entrance of Newgrange, which dates from approximately 3200 BC.
