Description

The Triskelion or Triskele is a motif consisting of a triple spiral exhibiting rotational symmetry. The Greek word meaning ‘three- legged’ can be seen in artwork throughout ancient European history. Norse art often characterises snakes entwined or in spiral formation and this carving is centred with a Celtic knot. Such Triskele designs can be found at Newgrange, Ireland (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and is one of the finest examples of Megalithic Rock Carving.
