Celtic Spiral Tile
The label on back of tile reads...
The true meaning behind Celtic designs is lost in the mists of history, little real documentary evidence exists today. Whatever the thoughts in the minds of those artists long ago we encourage you to enjoy their beauty and dream your own thoughts.
Spirals are amongst the most ancient of design motifs, They actually pre date the Celtic people, they are found at the New Grange prehistoric tomb in Ireland which dates back over 3000 years . They are also found extensively in Celtic art including the famous Book of Kells. The triple spiral is often associated with birth, death and re-birth. It also denotes spiritual balance between the inner & outer consciousness. Also the number three has always been sacred to the Celts and signifies good fortune.
