Celtic Triskele | Enamel Pin
This enamel pin by Sacred Knot Tattoo contains a triskele from a bronze disc brooch that can be visited in the National Museums of Ireland. Dating to the 6th or 7th CE, this brooch likely belonged to an elite Celtic Iron Age warrior. Tales of Irish mythology, such as the Táin, share detailed clothing descriptions of the Celtic warriors involved, almost always mentioning a gleaming brooch pinned at one or both shoulders.
The triskele on the original artifact is nearly worn away, but has brought to life by Sean in this modern enamel pin.
Material & Make
Our pins are crafted in solid metal with enamel detailing and a sturdy pin for security of closure and longevity.
