These hand-carved wooden triskeles were custom made for me in Bali and are flat-backed so they can be used on scrapbook layouts, invitations, and cards.

They're crafted from light but sturdy sono wood - a sustainable Indonesian hardwood. For papercraft projects, I like to use Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to attach items like these.

They are also suitable for jewelry and barrettes.

BACK STORY
The triskele – also called a triskelion or triple spiral - is an ancient symbol from a range of different cultures, noteably Greek and Celtic.

Composed of three conjoined spirals, the triskele motif has been associated with the sun, the afterlife, reincarnation, fertility and pregnancy, the three realms – land, water and sky – and with the three stages of the female life cycle – maiden, mother and crone.

As far as I know, this symbol doesn't have relevance in Indonesian culture. One that's a little similar and does have real meaning is the swastika. The word comes from the Sanscrit word for a lucky or auspicious object.

Like the triskele, the swastika was used in ancient cultures, and it remains in use in the Indian religions, Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.

Before Islamisation, much of Indonesia was Hindu and Bali remains so. The swastika is evident there, though it's displayed at a much more square-on angle than the motif that became a feared symbol of the Nazis.

"At the moment Hephaestus was busily
Turning from bellows to bellows, sweating with toil
As he laboured to finish a score of three-legged tables
To stand around the sides of his firm-founded hall. On each
Of the legs he had put a gold wheel, that those magic tables
Might cause all to marvel by going with no other help
To the gathering of gods and by likewise returning to his house."
~ The Illiad
