Product Description

HISTORY

A design of three interlocking spirals and most common in Celtic art. Fine examples are found at the Neolithic tomb site of Newgrange in Ireland, about 3200 BC, on stone carvings. There are several interpretations of its meaning - the continuity of life, or the relationship between earth, water and sky. Another theory is Motherhood and pregnancy, each spiral representing three months.

IONA is a small island off the West coast of Scotland.  In 563AD St.Columba, an Irish missionary monk, built a Celtic church there. It became a seat of learning and pilgrimage and the great masterpiece of Western calligraphy ' The Book of Kells' was created there by the monks in about 800AD. At the time of the Viking invasions it was removed to Ireland for safe keeping and now resides in Trinity College, Dublin.
