Triskele | Fine Art Painting
This design by Villkat Arts depicts one of the most impactful symbols of ancient art, the triskele, or triple spiral.
The symbol of the triskele can be found in Northern Europe from around 5000 years ago, when it was most notably carved into Newgrange stones of Ireland. But it most definitely was not confined to this time period. It now exists as an identifying motif for the Celtic and British Isles as well as across the globe.
Many believe the three lobes represent the dimensions of life; youth, adulthood, and old age...or perhaps the land, sky, and sea. There are hundreds of ancient forms of wisdom tied to the symbol of three, unfolding and refolding upon itself in spirals.
The only thing that can be certain is that it inspires reflection upon our place in time and the spiritual realm.
