MEANING: There are 3 aspects to this symbol as it is carved here.

The first aspect deals with the idea of Motion, the three spirals are arranged in a manner that make the symbol appear to be in constant forward motion. This gives the symbol the concept of: action, cycles, progress, revolution, competition, moving forward.

The second component is the Number of protrusions . Three is a significant number throughout different eras, cultures, mythos, etc. Just a few of this meanings are: Past Present, Future; Mind, Body, Spirit; Father, Son, Holy Ghost; Mother, Father, Child; Life, Death, Rebirth; Creation, Preservation, Destruction. There are more meanings, so it is your perspective as to the meaning of the triad.

The Outer Ring gives us the third component. Encircling a symbol puts it into a relationship or adds the aspect of eternity.

The Triskele is found among Celtic artifacts dating back to the beginning of the Iron Age. To the early Celts, this symbol expressed the cyclical relationship of our metaphorical journey through life, death and rebirth.

My Carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings. Each piece is finished with a blend of clear oils that brings out the natural color of the wood. For more information on the process of creation, please see my profile.

The last picture has the piece on a quilting board, lined up on the 1 inch marks. So subtract 1 inch from the height and width for the stock size. Measurements may vary slightly from piece to piece.
