Triskele – Triskelion Altar Tile


The Triskele or Triskelion is a symbol that consists of three interlocked spirals. It is one of the oldest Irish Celtic symbols in existence, and is best known to represent the three worlds; the celestial, physical, and spiritual. The spirals are also said to symbolize the inner and outer worlds and the themes of birth, death, and rebirth as well as the unity of mental, physical, and spiritual self.

The spiral is said to be an important spiritual marking that dates back to ancient origins in Irish culture. Made up of 3 joining spirals, the ancient Irish believed that everything happens in batches of 3, or ‘the 3rd times the charm’ – a belief that still exists today.

This hand burned triskele has been deeply burned for a tactile feel and stunning contrast with the color of the wood. It is ritually burned and sealed, then sealed with a protective coating to keep the piece good and vibrant. Tile measures approximately 10-12cm
