Celtic Symbol of Female Power
Make no mistake about it the triple spiral of the Triskele is one of the most celebrated and iconic of all Celtic symbols.
For the Celts this most ancient of symbols attracts the feminine power of the universe to you. This symbol has long been associated with the Celtic Triple Goddess, Brigid, who has been canonized into the Catholic church as Saint Brigid.
Each Talisman is created by hand, one at a time by me, more here...
Of all the ancient symbols created by man the spiral and the triple spiral are among the oldest. The oldest known use of the Triskele is in Malta and is 6,500 years old, carved within the Ġgantija Temples in Gozo.
In Ireland the triskele is most famously associated with the Newgrange tomb which was built around 3,200 BCE. This site is older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids. There is a large stone at the entrance to the Newgrange tomb where the Triskele has been carved into it.
The amazing thing about this stone is that while the stones for the tomb were carved and moved into place this stone was carved where it stood and used as a reference point for the construction of the tomb.Because each talisman is created by hand, one at a time, there is a slight size variation among them. They range from 10 to 12 ounces ( 284 to 340 gm) and are approximately 3.5 to 4 inches (8.9 to 10.2 cm) across.
