Kells key spiral brooch in pewter with engraved Celtic triscele design. Secures to garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch.
The triscele is commonly found in late Celtic art and is thought to have some Roman influence, although fine examples are found in the native art of Ireland and Scotland. It is thought to represent the three realms of Celtic lore: the past, the present and the future. One of the most popular of Ancient Celtic designs, it survived well into the Christian period, probably because it could also be considered to represent the Holy Trinity.
Supplied in a satin and velvet-lined gift box.
