IPTC INFO
CaptionCeltic bronze disc with yin yang whorl in a triskele arrangement spawning three stylized bird heads; find spot: Longban Island Derry; pre-Christian period; on display at Ulster Museum in Belfast --- --- --- What the symbol meant to the pagans who built Newgrange and other monuments is unknown; but as Christianity came into the forefront in Ireland before the 5th century AD the triskele took on new meaning as a symbol of the Trinity i.e. Father Son and Holy Spirit and therefore also a symbol of eternity. Its popularity continues today as a decorative symbol of faith for Christians of Celtic descent around the world. --- --- --- The triple spiral is one of the main symbols of Celtic Reconstructionist Paganism often standing for the "three realms" - Land Sea and Sky or for one of a number of deities who are described in the lore as "threefold" or triadic. The god Manannán is probably most often the one symbolized by the triskele though some also use it for the goddess Brighid. Some Celtic-inspired Wiccans also use the triple spiral symbol most often to represent the concept of the triple goddess. ______________________________________ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triskelion#/media/File:Celtic_Bronze_Disc _Longban_Island _Derry.jpg
